Has anyone else had this problem, cursor goes to top left of screen and is moveable anywhere on the screen it just sits there not booting.
However if I hold down Shift key on boot up it boots into safe start and I can use it as normal with no problem except there is no drivers loaded, as you would expect in Safe start.
WHAT I HAVE TRIED.
Booting off of DVD will load but goes to the same as normal boot screen with cursor up at the left moveable about but no start up screen as above.
All the other things work Opt key, D key, V key, PRAM SMC
If I connect in target mode to my other IMac same model as this one I can boot this computer on the other one and it displays no problem, if I do it the other way round it just hangs as in my question above.
I have checked the hard drive by changing it from one to the other computer and they both work ok.
So now I am looking for any answers to my problem, any of you people got any ideas of what is going wrong, prior to this happening all was working fine, I have checked the panic logs but cannot see any problems there, by the way the OS X is 10.6.8
Please help me.
Is this a good question?
