    Today all of a sudden my Macbook refuses to boot up. When it starts-up, it goes to the gray screen with the apple logo on it (and that spinning wheel) but doesn't continue. I've left it like that for hours and it still hasn't loaded the login screen. I can hear the HD working...so don't know what the problem is. I've tried rebooting a number of times but still the same problem every time. Please help!!!!!

    Can you boot from the Install DVD?If yes, try a disk repair and repair permissions from the Disk Utility.

    Ive had the same problems - after i messed with the permissions. Boot from disk then fix or just restore from backup (if you have) & if its recent enough..
