The latest in this saga has led to a real problem. Nothing happens after the chime!

 

After not using the machine for a month and having reinstalled a new hd, OSX etc the machine was taking forever to start up, shut down etc - as in several minutes!

 

And the Spinning Ball would appear every few seonds and linger forever. Now after doing a PRAM reset the machine will not start at all. NO keyboard commands do anything and I am stuck with a black screen after the chines.

 

Cannot access other OS's, (Option-CMD), Safe Boot, or any other keyboard commands at all. I can hear a drive spinning but there is just zero connection between the keyboard commands at all.

 

Before the latest problem I had used Activity Monitor and while I am no expert, there was no evidence of any real issues there - lots or RAM, little CPU hogging, low network activity, etc

 

Any magic bulltets to kick start this sucker into life?

 

Thanks a lot
