    I went to go online tonight on my 3 week old mac mini and It wouldn't go online so I reboot now it's stuck at the apple screen and has been loading for 10 minutes with a progress bar any idea why ?

    Could be the HDD or the logic board failing... That's what happened on my old iBook G3 before it died, it got really slow, crashes randomly...

    Is your Mini sluggish when your using it after startup?

    If its your drive failing - back up what you can NOW.

    Before even running any additional testing - back up your important files - in order of importance.

    No, I'm not teasing or BSing here.

    Jeez I didn't think of that... Yes, back up your important stuff if it isn't already backed up!
