Software :: Spinning Wheel After Login?

Sep 28, 2008

I'm really stuck with this one. I have just purchased 2 Macs, an iMac and a Macbook (the white one). This problem only happens with one of them, the Macbook.

When I login using my windows account (DOMAINUser) on my iMac everything works fine. When I try the same on my Macbook however I type my password, hit Login, and then I get the spinning colorful wheel, and nothing else (I have waited a loooong time).

This is really frustrating because:

1. I can log in to a local account on the Macbook

2. the settings between both machines for Active Directory are exactly the same

The only 3rd party software I have installed on both machines is Office 2008 (the standard edition - not home & student).

This is what I have tried so far (remembering, I'm not a Mac expert, but am a PC expert):

1. Reboot

2. Removed the mobile account that was created when I logged into Active Directory, then logged in again

3. Typed a wrong password, this confirmed that the Macbook was talking to the Windows server (I can see network traffic as well)

4. Cleared the Library/Caches folder, and System/Library/Caches folder

MacBook :: Wouldn't Start - Stuck With Apple Sign And Spinning Wheel

Feb 5, 2010

my 2006 macbook has not been able to start. First it didn't even have the chime, then I read through some threads in this forum and figured out that one of my RAMs was not properly put in. I fixed that, now I get the chime, the apple sign, and a spinning wheel and I am stuck there forever.

I tried:

resetting PRAM, didn't help.

start from safe boot, still stuck with apple sign and spinning wheel.

boot from installation CD by holding either the "C" or "D" key, it would not start from the CD.

Curiously, I can start it in Windows and I am using Windows right now. Some threads said that it could be a hard drive problem, but if I am using Windows, does it mean that my hard drive is fine?

I've already spent 800+ fixing the logic board in 2008 b/c of a water spill and really don't want to spend any meaningful amount of money to fix this 1000 bucks or so laptop. If any hardware is in jeopardy, I'd rather just throw it away. However, I would like to at least be able to start it in Mac OS once so that I can back up my documents.

OS X V10.4 :: Old IMac Won't Start Up And Stuck In Gray Screen With Spinning Wheel

Apr 24, 2012

I have a very old IMac which I purchased back in 2005, and has been working fine. I have left it in storage about 1 and 1/2 years ago. Just now I try to restart it, the screen is forever stuck in the grey screen with the spinning wheel. I tried many times off-on, hold down the apple function key but none worked. I no longer have the rebooting CD with me. I wonder whether the computer can still be saved? I have already backed up the contents so it doesn't matter if fixing the computer requires me to delete all my old files. I think it's tiger or earlier that it's using.

Intel Mac :: Won't Start - Get Apple Logo With Spinning Wheel, Question Mark That Disappears And Then Blank Blue Screen?

Jul 1, 2012

My daughter's old I Mac won't start. It is not backed up.  We want to get some things off of it if we can. When we turn it on, we get the Apple logo with spinning wheel for awhile, then a question mark briefly and then a sky blue blank screen.  Is there any hope of getting this to work?  This computer is out of warranty.  Does it seem that if we reinstall the Operating System we might find old data?

MacBook Pro :: Spinning Wheel Of Death

Apr 17, 2012

My computer stopped charging and turning on a short while after it was dropped. 

I bought a new charger and my dad managed to fix it. (after i was told by a tech expert at a dodgy asian store the main processer had to be replaced)  The only issue im having are. The spinny wheel apears in almost all tasks, internet , browsing flies , clicking top tab. 

It only appears for about 30 seconds then goes away, sometimes freezing completely, It seems to happen less when the computer is stationary but still will happen quite often even just typing text. Logic Pro after reinstalling refuses to Open. Music sometimes freezes skips for 5-10 seconds. 

I did some research and try a few things its not the CPU usage cause i been checking using that program that checks. Is there a way i can check what part is failing through software or maybe do a general clean up? since it was reformated. 

Do i need to get a new computer or just a replacement part if i eliminate all other issues? Or could it be the start up drive?

MacBook Air :: Spinning Wheel On Startup And Shuts Down

Mar 23, 2010

All of a sudden I was restarting my Air and now, it just has the spinning wheel for a few seconds and then goes blank and shuts down. I have tried everything the 'guide trouble shoots' but nothing has worked. Even was able to test the hard drive and it came back with no trouble. I tried to 'return to factory setting' but no luck and also tried resetting the Parameter RAM.

MacBook Pro :: Not Booting - Getting Infinite Spinning Wheel

May 20, 2010

I put in a samsung 500gb drive, and since yesterday this one is also doing strange. I was browsing the internet and it started launching itunes and going really slow although i wasn't doing anything, then it showed a force quit window telling me there was not enough memory on the startup disk for applications, althoug i still have roughly 340gb of free space. I just thought of restarting it maybe that solved the problem. But no, since then it doesn't startup in mac os x, bootcamp works fine with windows 7 installed. But starting snow leopard just gives me a grey screen like the safe boot screen with the progress bar and the spinning wheel. the progress bar dissapears after a while and the wheel etternaly spins.

Tried single user mode and fsck -fy but it only gives me some dislocations, it gets till the repairing Tree and then says that the volume Macintosh HD could not be repaired. Also tried to reset Pram but that neither. starting up with a bootable usb with the mac os x install dvd on it gives me the prohibitory sign after 2 minutes. I still have to try with my original disc, but that one is at home and I'm not gonna be there till next month.

MacBook Pro :: Stuck At The Spinning Wheel / Grey Screen?

Aug 13, 2010

So all of the sudden my mbp will not boot past the spinning wheel/apple screen. I have not let it try for longer than 15 minutes but I don't see the point. I tried to boot in safe mode(hold down shift) but the bar only went to about 1/3 and stopped/ I don't know what to do. This shouldn't be happening after a couple months of light use.

Just for extra info:

I am able to boot into windows 7 via boot camp. Cannot boot from cd or go into safe mode.

Software :: Macbook Freezing On Desktop - Spinning Wheel

Nov 5, 2009

The other day I went to restart my Macbook. It wouldn't so I had to force it via the off button. Now it boots but is stuck at desktop. I can't do ANYTHING but just look at the desktop background (which loads) and the spinning cursor. I reset PRAM and booted in Safe Mode but the same thing happens, it's just stuck on the desktop with no dock, no nothing but the spinning cursor. My disc drive is broken so can't do a reinstall right now and not sure if I could use an external disc drive. What I have tried: Resetting PRAM Going into single user and running a check- returns saying the volume is okay. When I typed reboot it didn't reboot. Exit brings me to the same desktop with spinning wheel.

MacBook :: Perpetually See A Grey Screen And Spinning Wheel?

Apr 28, 2012

A few months ago my 2004 iMac froze as I was simply shutting down the power and attempting to restart. I was not installing any new O/S.Today I attempted two things while booting with the O/S recovery disc-1: (a) I slid the disc in and held down the "C" key while I attempted to power it on. Nothing happened and I continued to see the grey screen and spinning wheel. 

(b) I slid the disc inside and held down the "ALT" key while I attempted to power it on. Three icons showed up: (a) Hard Disk; (b) Recovery Disc; and (c) Test. I clicked on the Test icon and it took me to a new screen with two options: ( i ) Quick Test and ( ii ) Extended Test. I clicked on Quick Test. The first aspect of the Quick Test (I think it was Airport) went through fine and passed. The second aspect of the Quick Test (Logic Board testing) continued to show "In Progress" for a really long time (about 15 mins.). From that I figured something must have gone wrong with the Logic Board.

MacBook Pro :: Apple Startup Screen Spinning Wheel?

May 23, 2012

I rebooted my MacBook Pro (15", i7).  When the system started back up, I got a status bar at the bottom of the screen.  It took approx two minutes for the status bar to move to completion (almost like it was performing a BIOS update).  I then got the gray spinning wheel (gray backdrop, darker gray Apple logo).  I tried holding down the CMD and Option keys during a subsequent reboot....nothing changes.

MacBook Pro :: Spinning Color Wheel Pointer / Page Freezes

Dec 8, 2010

What does it mean when my 13" Macbook Pro pointer turns into a spinning color wheel after a web page loads, but freezes while this is happening? Every now and it does this for just a few seconds. At first I though maybe it lost my home Wifi signal, but it's showing 4 full bars.
