this problem arose out of nowhere.. my dell mini 9 has been running fine for months on 10.5.6...
i haven't installed anything new at all. went to wake it from sleep & got black screen with a movable mouse. i restarted & after the boot screen it went to the grey screen with the apple (no spinning thing under it) then after 2 or 3 seconds it goes straight to the grey restart screen.
have tried -x, -v, and holding down shift at the grey apple screen. i was able to bring up a diagnostic screen that froze after displaying a lot of information.. I can post a picture of this if it would be of any help.
please, if anyone can help me out with this i would greatly appreciate it.
