I am posting this from my husband's iMac, since my Macbook Pro won't turn on. It chimes, and then the apple logo appears, with a spinning circle...and it spins, and spins, and spins, and then the apple logo changes to a "stop" symbol. So right now I'm trying to boot it in safe mode. It's been at least fifteen minutes. It appeared to be working, with the progress bar underneath the apple logo, but then that switched back to the spinning circle, which is still spinning, and spinning...

Next, I'll be trying to boot from the install disk. The good news is, I have AppleCare. the bad news is, it's been a really long time since I bothered to Time Machine. :( Oh, and I have a paper due for school tonight. And writing files that are only on my hard drive. *tries not to freak out*

I hope this problem gets resolved without losing everything on my computer and/or needing to send it off to Apple for weeks. 

Edit: I have tried resetting the PRAM or whatever, and that didn't work, so now I am trying to reset the SMC, which actually all of the symptoms sound very familiar, so *fingers crossed* this might be it.
