Soooooooo I have a macbook pro and when i try to start it it takes a good 5 minutes at the screen with the apple logo and spinny thing and then it just gets stuck at the blue screen before the login screen. Nothing happens- the mouse doesn't show up, the login screen never shows up. However- it works starting up in safe mode! Yay! So, what can i do to fix this? its a 2.5ghz macbook pro with 10.5.3 it just randomly started - no software updates, hardware/software changes. I repaired permissions- didn't do anything. Thank you!
