    After my install of SL on my MacBook, I'm getting a blank desktop screen when it starts up. Every once in a while I'll get the log on screen, but when I try to log on it gives me the spinning ball of death.

    I can boot my laptop with safe mode, but thats about it.

    I have restarted... reinstalled SL.... Disk Utilities...


    I can get my MacBook to launch into safe mode fine.. but not any other way.

    Did you do an upgrade, or are you part way through a clean install? If you have all your files backed up, might be worth just erasing the hard drive, and installing Snow Leopard fresh.

    Can I do a backup through safe mode? My last back up was about a month ago
