    Hi, I attempted to reset the PRAM on my macpro running snow leopard this morning, by rebooting and holding cmd-option-p-r until the apple logo appeared, at which point I released and then machine then rebooted a second time. I went back to the computer about an hour later and it was stuck on the apple logo screen, with no sounds coming from the CPU. I did a hard reboot by holding down the power key and it started up fine. I've never reset the pram before and so I didn't know what I should expect as far as the process being successful, but after an hour stuck on the apple logo I figured it got stuck on something.

    Why don't we rewind to why you wanted to reset the PRAM?
