    Please Help - Mac Not Booting Up
    I have a macbook pro, 13.3 running Snow Leopard,
    I was playing around with my sharing and permission rights on my hard drive on my mac, after rebooting the lap top the screen is stuck on with the apple logo and the circle is just spinning.

    I tried booting up in safe mode, nothing
    I tried Resetting the PRAM, nothing

    I do not have the original install disks for the laptop.

    Please help, I have really important files that I cant lose, is there anyway I can recover the files or the OS, just so it boots up then I can move those files and then try re-installing the OS

    Boot from your installation disc and repair permissions from there. Also while you are in it, run verify/repair disk.
    Mac OS X - Using Disk Utility to Repair a Disk

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

    Thanks Guys for all the help.....

    Just to let u guys know, I inserted a Snow Leopard disk and run the disk utility program, and fixed the disk permissions.

    Every thing is exactly how it was & working 100%
