    Hi, bought an 13" white macbook today off a friend for cheap. I knew it had issues and he said it stuck on loading. Which it does.

    After reading around it appears it a common problem, but i cant get to the bottom of it.

    It shows the login bit where it has the loading bar, then goes to a blue page with curser and then back to spinning wheel.

    I have tried the fsck and PRAM stuff.

    Just tried botting in verbose mode but it just has one line which is showing it: Login Window Application Started.

    Its been like that for 10 minutes or so.

    I do not have the install disks but will try and get them if he has them.

    Any help?

    have you tried booting into safe mode (holding down left shift key when you turn the computer on)?

    as simsaladimbamba said, drop $30 on the SL disc. You're gonna need it eventually
