Hello,

 

I have had a problem with my Macbook Pro for about 6 weeks now.  First, I start it up, and there is no chime, but it does start. The boot time is rather slow. I get to the grey screen with apple spinning, then goes to a light blue screen.  After that, the desktop comes up, but everything is sort of grayed out. I can move my cursor around, but I can't click anything. About 7-10 minutes after I sit there, the screen becomes clear, and I can click and run everything as usual. I know that this is not normal, but I can't figure out why.  A couple side notes, the macbook seems to run sort of hot, and the AC adapter sometimes runs hot too.  The heat seems to come from the middle at the bottom and in the back, so it is not where the hard drive is located. I also do not at any time have a spinning rainbow wheel, which leads me to think that it is not hard drive related.

 

 

I would greatly appreciate some help and guidance at this point from some apple pros to see what I can do.

 

Specs:

  Model Name:          MacBook Pro

  Model Identifier:          MacBookPro3,1

  Processor Name:          Intel Core 2 Duo

  Processor Speed:          2.4 GHz

  Number Of Processors:          1

  Total Number Of Cores:          2

  L2 Cache:          4 MB

  Memory:          4 GB

  Bus Speed:          800 MHz

  Boot ROM Version:          MBP31.0070.B07

  SMC Version (system):          1.18f5

 

 

Things that I have tried so far:

 

-Reset SMC Controller (multiple times)

-Reset PRAM (multiple times)

-Formatted HD (multiple pass) 2x times

-Ran Repair Disk and Disk Permissions (multiple times) Originally, file counts were wrong, but this went away after format and reinstall.

-Moved and pulled one of the memory sticks to see if that was the issue

-REPLACED the PRAM battery (with the issue first started, my mac would revert back to January 1 2000)

-Reinstalled OSX 10.6.3 and updated to 10.6.8

-Cleared the Cache Folders

 

System boot log (just now, included a PRAM reset):
