Default Help - Stuck in a Boot Loop - 02-17-2009, 06:02 PM

I was running fine last Friday. Turned it on this morning and it's constantly boot looping.

Hooked up my external USB drive and ran -v and the last 2 lines says:

HFS: Runtime corruption detected on MAC, fsck will be forced on next mount.
AppleintelCPUPowerManagement: Initialization Complete

What can I do?

You could try booting into the install disc and then repairing the disk with Disk Utility. Could be a corrupted file system.
Also, you could try -x for safe mode.
