    This problem just came up today. I tried starting it up and everything goes normally.
    the loading bar that says "Mac OSX starting" works fine.
    The mouse pointer appears as normal.
    The dock will not appear. The menu bar at the top will not appear. No desktop icons will appear. My dekstop's background image will not appear.

    There has to be another way to start a program other than graphically. Please help. I have homework due.


    Thank you in advance.

    I hope you solved this already.

    If not, have you tried starting up from your OS installation disc?

    I did get in -using the boot disk- and I'm trying to repair the disk.
