    hello, I have my macbok pro 2.2 ghz and i am running leopard 10.5.2 i have a HP laserJet 3300 Printer, so i found that the mac does not come built in with the drivers for this so i inserted the HP LaserJet 3300 CD into my computer i installed it and was prompted to reboot so i rebooted my mac turned on fine but now i am at the stage where the screen is white, there is a grey apple in the middle of the screen and the little grey "loading thing" rotating. And ive been here for 45 Minutes i have tried performing a force-shutdown and then turning it on again and i have had no luck. I would really appreciate it if somebody could help me out.

    If it doesn't continue on it's own, try rebooting again. If that still doesn't work, try booting and holding down the shift key, to boot in safe mode. If it boots to safe mode,. logout, and reboot again and see if it comes up...

    Try zapping the PRAM. Hold down Command + Option + P + R at boot time.
