    Exclamation Grey screen + spinning wheel
    I tried pretty much every method in the book... Safe booting , fsck, cmnd-opn-p-r, holding opn, disconnecting hardware, and Everything else on the Mac troubleshooting page. I have an iMac 10.5.9 and I just did software update. Plz help!

    Have you tried booting into your OSX install DVD, then going to Utilities > Disk Utility, click your hdd, click the First Aid tab, then click Repair Disk, once complete click Repair Disk Permissions.
    This could take a while so be patient.

    Hopefully if you haven't already done this it will help

    That might mean your Hard Drive is dying. Happened to a iMac of mine when it just was stuck on that screen. You can maybe restore your leopard CD.
