Well, my computer won't startup. Gray screen on regular startups, black screen with no cursor on safe mode startup.
It started after a everything froze while performing a massive file search in finder. I was looking through all pictures before Jan. 1st last year -- gigs and gigs and gigs of data -- and I was in the Cover Flow view. I noticed everything was slowing down, and while I was browsing, I tried opening a couple files, both in preview and in Photoshop. Both programs hung and eventually crashed.
Eventually, finder itself froze completely. I hard reset. Now, nothing boots.
I've tried moving the preferences files from Library/Preferences (finder, dock, systempreferences), no go. I tried moving the
/Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginwindow.plist file and
/Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver.plist file. No go.
I deleted all the caches from
Checked my hard drive with fsck and everything is fine. Also tried
/usr/libexec/repair_packages --repair --standard-pkgs. Nada.
My last line in my boot log is
UserEventAgent: Captive: CNPluginHandler en1: Inactive.
If I boot to safe mode, the progress bar loads, it hangs on the gray screen for a while, it flashes blue for a split second and then hangs on the black screen.
Regular boot just hangs on the gray screen.
