Mac doesn't start up

Hi all,

I have a iMac (the dome-shaped one) that I have trouble with. It goes like this:

1. Turn on computer.
2. Before it goes to the login screen, it tells me to restart computer in 4 different languages.

What's going on and what should I do?

Thank you all in advance.

I'd try Safe Mode first.

If it still panics then you might want to boot into single user mode and read panic.log.
