i had my startup disk locked in system preferences which I've done before. This time I went to unlock it and the usual window for my password did not pop up. I restarted the computer and this is what I'm getting: 1.the grey screen 2. then the blue screen with the grey spinning ball 3. then the blue screen without the grey spinning ball, then back again to #2. It almost seems like the computer is about to start, and then it stops. I hope this is just a really stupid mistake and nothing serious.
Did I lock myself out of my own computer?
