Hi everyone, Within the last day or so, my MacBook Pro started taking a very long time to start up. Today, it got to the point where once it started up (after about 20 minutes), I could barely perform any task on my computer. Even trying to open the Finder took about 10 minutes. I restarted my computer and this time when it shut down abruptly at the grey apple screen with the swirling timer. This now happens each time I try to turn on my computer. I can still boot the Windows Partition. I thought maybe my hard drive was corrupt, but I can access and open files from the Mac hard drive after extracting them with HFSExplorer on Windows. Any ideas on how to fix my problem? Just to note: I'm away at college and don't have my Leopard install disk so that is out of the question right now. Thanks for any help offered.
