    This evening while surfing the net my 2 year old 15" mbp froze. I couldn't force quit or anything and had to result to holding the power button down to shut it off. When I turned it on again it was on the white screen with the apple and spinning circle ( not the beach ball) for more than 10 minutes before it moved on to the login screen. I was able to enter my password. After entering my pw it moved onto a blue screen with the beachball for more than 15 minutes now. Any idea what might be wrong or better yet how to fix it? I have already tried resetting the pram. Thanks

    It could be the hard drive, did you try booting up on your install disc?

    If all else fails, then your only option is to call apple for support and send it in for repair. If you have apple care, no big deal, if not then it could be expensive if you have to pay for it out of your own pocket.
