If you can run it in safe mode, that means that you have an extension problem. I had most of the time problems with the ATI extensions.
First of all try too boot on another account, an new one would be good, to check if this is not account related.
Secondly i would reinstall the system (a clean install would be good, tough you can try an archive-install)
Thirdly if it isnt fixed I would delete all ATI extensions instead of the one that your graphic card uses. to delete: go to /System/Library/Extensions .
Hope that helps

It sounds like the system is corrupted. What I would do is to get your instal disk and boot up holding down the c key on your keyboard. Once you have booted up go to the file menu and run disk utility to verify and repair the hard drive. Then go to the instal menu and instal a fresh system remembering to preserve the users data so you do not wipe anything. Hopefully this will work.

This behavior is usually symptomatic of an internal drive that is failing or has failed. The pinwheel appears when the drive is unable to deliver a certain block that the CPU needs to proceed. In our shop, we would boot from a Drive Genius CD and run the Scan test on every block on the internal drive. If blocks show up as bad, the best course is to replace the drive. If no blocks show up as bad, we would run DiskWarrior on the file system to clear up any volume inconsistencies, which can also give rise to this symptom. If neither of these solves the problem, we could back up the user files to an external drive, reformat the internal drive using "erase writing zeroes," reinstall the system from scratch, then replace the user files.

Shut down the mac by holding in the power button for about 10 seconds.
Is the CD a system CD or something else?
If it's a system CD restart the mac and hold down the letter C on the keyboard. after about 30 seconds the mac should boot up into installation mode. If it does, click on the language then then at the next page go up to the menu bar and locate Utilities and disk utility. Run the disk repair then try and restart. (The flashing ? means that the computer cannot find a start-up drive with a valid system on it. The repair routine can sometimes fix that - it doesn't always though.)
If it's not a system CD and you obviously need to get it out before you can do anything else - restart the mac but this time instead of holding down the C key, hold down the click on the mouse. It takes 10 to 15 seconds (sometimes longer) but it will force the computer to eject t the CD.
