My iMac boots up to the desktop. I let it warm up but as soon as I select ANY function the beachball appears and I have no function or access to ANYTHING- just this spinning ball. It has been shutdown for about 6 weeks. I have reset the PRAM and it seems to be getting very hot. It has been trying to load in safe mode now for about 30 minutes. Does that sound right?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
