    Hey,

    I have a small, well its not a problemm but anyway. :(

    My macbook (late 2009) Is taking ages to start up. :mad: I just recently had my Logic Board fixed (headphone jack screwed up) and after picking it up from the shop it takes ages to start up... First there is a grey screen for about 30 sec. then the apple logo appears with the turning wheel thing for another 50 sec....

    I do have over 40% harddisk space left... I only have BTT as a startup item and in /MacHD/Libary/startupitems i only have PACESupport....

    any help:confused: (thanks in advance)

    Woohoo same thing for me. Startup disk selection was the culprit although repairing permissions never hurts. Late 2008 unibody MacBook Pro had its nvidia card and the logic board fried due to a damaged (my doing :D) heat-sink. I'm very surprised that it lasted this long and worried at the same time that it could have blown up. World War Z did not imply that it was the sole source.
