Okay, I am trying to fix my cousin's macbook pro that she got for free. She only has the laptop and nothing else for it and it's about two years old. Wen I try to start it up I either choose the wireless network or login. After both of those things I get to the blue screen and that's it, or I get to the background with nothing else on the screen. I've tried doing safe boot and it still does nothing. I need help!

This has happened to my iMac G4. After I reinstalled OS X Leopard and upgraded the ram, it no longer did it. :)

No. The discs either have to be retail or the ones that came with the computer. Discs that come with a computer a serialized so they can't be used on other computers.
