    never had this issue. it has power... it starts.. but acts like its going to load to the desktop but only stays on that blue skrin. i see the familiar gear circle spinning and then it goes from that to the pointer on the screen then back again...over and over.
    anyone know what i can do?

    Did you recently install any RAM or do you have any hardware plugged in? If so remove them. You could also try booting off the OS X disk and repairing permissions through Disk Utility.

    if you haven't fixed it (I can't tell from that last post)

    it COULD be the HD. Run the hardware tests off the disks.

    Good luck, man.
