Hi all,


Have had this for a while now, when switched on i get the chime, apple logo and then goes to a blue/grey screen with the spinning gear. also at this point i get the mouse cursor which comes and goes.


Have tried all the safe mode and verbose mode.


Verbose just produces the screen shot i have attached,  i left  running through the night and comes up with the same message but with different time stamp


I did try and boot from my Leopard 10.5 cd but just went straight through to the grey screen.


Any help would be really appreciatedIMG_0784.JPG
