    Hi guys. c:
    While I was on my mac, it sorta froze, so I restarted the laptop by holding down the power button. I pressed it again, but the screen was just the normal booting screen; white, apple logo, and the spinning circle thing. And so now, I can't get pass that screen, the circle just keeps spinning. I had a similar problem, but with boot camp, although, I don't have boot camp installed anymore.
    I tried resetting the PRAM, but it didn't help. I also booted in safe mode, didn't help either. Right now I've been able to access the disk utility through my Mac Install CD, and I'm repairing the drives but I don't know if it'll help...
    Any suggestions? It would help a lot.
