    After my install of SL on my MacBook, I'm getting a blank desktop screen when it starts up. Every once in a while I'll get the log on screen, but when I try to log on it gives me the spinning ball of death.

    I can boot my laptop with safe mode, but thats about it.

    I have a quite a similar problem after upgrading to Snow Leopard. I do not have the blank screen but on several occasion after computer wakes up from sleep it says that I do not have any networks. I have to restarts to get it to work. So far so good and I hope it stays that way.

    I have restarted... reinstalled SL.... Disk Utilities...


    I can get my MacBook to launch into safe mode fine.. but not any other way.

    Have you tried repairing permissions using Disk Utility?

    Yes, I have tried repairing permissions, resetting pram,.. ect... Is there anyway to go back to 10.5.8?

    The last time I did a backup was like a month ago...
