    Hi! This is my second day of looking for an answer and im confident you guys can help me out.

    I purchased my macbook pro about 9-12 months ago, at first it would start up in less than 40 seconds and shutdown constantly in 3 seconds. Now days it takes roughly around 5-6 minutes. On top of that the track pad gestures pinch in and out is not working thus if i want to make a image bigger or smaller, or even make the letters of what I'm trying to read bigger or smaller i will have to do it like a windows user would :'( thats just a shame for a $2-3k USD computer.

    As is booting up, it stays in the gray screen with the apple and the gear for about 2 mins, after that the screen goes blue as if it where to go in the system interface and then ill have to wait at least 3-5 more minutes.

    At first i thought it was the permissions so i repaired it, then i ran the full dx and test that "Disk Utility" has to offer. All went good yet no progress. So i figured i must have installed something that messed up my system so i went on to do a clean install of the system. And this is where i am today, fresh installed OS X ver 10.5.7, 2.4 Ghz Intel core 2 Duo processor, 2GB @ 667 Mhz DDR2 SDRAM with the GeForce 256 MB 8600M GT graphic card. One more thing I'm currently running a full Dx test with "techtool delux" and so far so good, ill edit this post when its done if it comes out negative anywhere.

    The problems remain the same: (1) extremely slow startup (about 5mins) and (2) the trackpad gestures to pinch in and out wont work.

    PD: Attached a bootlog.txt just in case someone needs it. I would appreciate any information even if its a referral ^_^ i just want to be happy again, cause this is making me feel kinda :(

    Thanks for the swift reply, but i think it has something to do with a system service while booting up. The reason is, i did went on safe mode (pressed shift) and it started in roughly 40 seconds. Big difference, my guess is a network connection or a graphic card issue.

    Btw the "Techtool delux" report is done, it passed all the tests. :S
