It was giving me the error that OSX has a corrupt file and "disk verify" could not finish, nor could it be repaired without the startup disk. I used an external CD ROM to startup with the OSX disk (new one Apple sent) and it fixed that problem. Then eliminated the second partition I had set up on the HD and now it works beautifully! Still not entirely sure why the CD ROM I have wouldn't read the startup disk but since it reads everything else and (for now) the problems seems fixed, I'm not concerning about it until it fails altogether. Thanks for the suggestions and assistance! It helped greatly. The hard drive and all other components are fine....thank goodness since the HD and memory are only 1 yr old (replaced them last year).
