I bought my wife a Macbook for Christmas and once she opened it up I turned it on, but it didn't get past the blank blue screen. I believe it is working because I hear the word "English" which I am guessing is a language selection thing, and if I hit "enter" it starts the introductory video for Leopard...but all I see is the blank blue screen...no cursor, no nothing. I tried to load from the disk and I tried to start in safe mode but i get the same result...just a blank blue screen. As before I believe the computer booted, but the screen is just displaying blue. I also reset the PRAM and tried a number of different startup techniques, but each time I just get a blue screen. Any advice? A couple things: I didn't charge the battery much...just plugged it in and went from there. Could that be an issue? It's charging right now... I bought it through Amazon so I'm unsure about warranty/return options. Can I still take it into an Apple Store to get looked at? Thanks for any help!
