    Help, won't boot up
    Macbook pro running OS 10.6.2

    I was browsing the internet and the screen froze. All that was happening was the rainbow spiral. I did a hard shut down.

    Powered back up. For the past 25 minutes all the computer is showing is a clockwise black spiral on the first screen before the blue screen.

    What can I do next?

    Thanks.

    Could be anything. Not enough information to make a diagnosis.

    For starters, boot from your original system DVD and see if the machine can boot up that way. If so, can you see your hard drive anywhere?

    Just did a PRAM and NVRAM reset (command-option-P-R).

    I'll look for the sys disk.

    Found sys disk.

    Inserted and pressed "C" key.

    Still only see the first gray screen (with apple logo and clockwise spiral).
