    I brand new to macs, I got an older Ibook G4 from my daughter. I have been getting a message that say"press the restart button" to restart your computer. I happens when I shut down but it will also happen at other times. The screen goes dim and a black box open with this message in 3 different languages. So I just hold down the power button and restart, sometimes it will and sometimes it will go back to the message again.
    Any advice as to what this might be?

    thanks
