    Hey guys,

    Last night i left my Macbook Pro downloading a game on steam overnight, when i got up in the morning it seems like it restarted and went onto the mac login screen. So i restarted it into windows and it had been installing an update, and it said something like "installing clientregistry" with a number/number (it was the last step). It then restarted again and so i booted into windows, except after the screen where the colours fly around, i can see my cursor for a tiny bit then the screen goes black. You can tell it's still on as the fans continue to run and the brightness is a bit higher than what it would be if it was off. When i go onto the mac side, it says something like NTFS 3G force or abort, i chose force but it doesn't change anything. If i boot into safe mode in windows (when it detects it didn't shut down properly), i can get to the login screen and login but it says error cannot load profile, and it restarts after a certain time.

    Please help :(

    If you've got a Windows 7 disc on your, you could boot from that and access System Restore to roll Windows back to a time before you were getting this problem.
