Stuck at apple logo with spinning circle

Recommended Posts



I have a strange issue, that i cant seem to find any posts about it. The issue i have is, the apple logo comes up, moments later the spinning circle, it stays like that for a while, then a O shape with a cross through it ( / ) pops up in the middle of the screen, nothing further after that.





Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 clocked at 2.40GHZ

Installed on a ST3500320AS ATA Device

AMD Radeon HD 5800 Series
Gigabyte motherboard (as much as i know sorry)
1920 x 1080 HDMI TV
Another side issue, is that it doesnt pick up my PS/2 Keyboard.
Its a basic Logitech SK-2930
