    someone please help!!

    i had startup issues with mu powerbook not too long ago, where i couldnt turn macine on and it would stall on the grey screen w/apple and pinwheel dashes.
    i had the machine wiped clean and re-programmed. everything was fine....UNTIL...

    this asfternoon i went to check an email. it took forever to open up. so i walked away. when i came back there was writting all over the screen like when you do single user mode.

    so i restarted and did single starter mode, and got a all systems ok, now my screen is stalled on the grey apple screen with revolving dashes.

    any suggestions?!
