    If you leave it on long enough does it go to a mac os x login screen?

    If so you've got the Login Screen of Death (LSOD) This is currently the only known fix for it: LSOD - AwkwardTV

    however it doesnt work 100% recently when i had some odd power issues (power turned on and off probably 5-6 times within an hour- was a bad storm) anyhow the LSOD i got after that wasn't fixed by this method and i had to restore. every other one before and after this incident that solution has worked, so it has a pretty high success rate.
