    Maybe this will work.

    You should let is sit loading all night, usually problems like these fix themselves. If it still fails to boot completely by the time you wake up, then i'd suggest reinstalling Mac OS 10.

    You could try booting from a DVD and repairing permissions. Alternatively it might have been bashed about during the move to and from storage and that might have had an affect on the HDD. Unlikely though. Permissions likely to be your best bet!

    Could be the PRAM battery.
