Hi all, am new here. Please help me. My macbook pro always stuck after the blue loading bar at the start-up (at "Welcome to Mac OS X" window). The bar always finished loading but that's all. No login window or anything. I have tried leaving it for an hour to reach login window but no success there. I have an important project file and is due soon. Please, can anyone suggest a solution? FYI, I have tried going to "safe boot" but so far, cannot even get the "safe mode". I have tried repair the disk and its permissions using the Install Disk. i am running 10.4.11. Please help.
