so today i tried booting up my macbook (OSX tiger) and it stayed on the white screen longer than usual, then on the blue screen it loaded very fast and just stayed on the blue screen for around 5 minutes. i shut down, tried booting again-- same result. i tried over and over again, and finally held command v at startup. it said something about "couldnt set up diskarb". i then reset again and waited this time. it finally booted up my desktop (just the desktop) after about 5 minutes. 5 minutes later, my taskbar showed up without the time, bluetooth, sound, and battery life; and my dock showed up. last night it acted fine, i didn't download any software updates or anything. i thought the problem was this: http://forums.macosxhints.com/archive/index.php/t-72125.html so i opened font book, etc. it took more than 30 minutes to do so. i resolved duplicates and restarted the computer. my wallpaper was up for about 10 minutes after i had restarted, so i did ctrl, ?, power button. didn't work, it still booted slow. i tried to boot in safe mode but after the gray screen it just shuts off. i reset my PRAM and PMU-- to no avail. help would be appreciated.
