    I just installed VMWare Fusion on my MacBook (one in my sig) and as soon as I did that, I tried installing 007 NightFire. Well, the disk got stuck in the drive, then I force restarted, as soon as I hit the power button, I got a sleep light, no chime, and a black screen, I could hear the SuperDrive grinding. Now, whenever I try starting it up, I see scrambled video (before it even shows the Apple, then it freezes. It's yellow and blue scrambled), black screen (issue stated), or it starts up flawlessly, then it says "Your computer needs to be restarted". Any help would be MUCH appreciated. Thanks for your time!

    Try a Safe Boot into OS X.

    It sounds like VMWare Fusion kernel extension is mucking things up. You might want to remove it and see if that resolves things before reinstalling it.

    What's with the popularity of CAPS, HALP, and EXCLAMATION POINTS?

    I tried that. Didn't fix it. I was reading, and I could have a failed logic board. If I do, will Apple replace my MacBook with a brand new one? It's only two months old, so it has ten more months of AppleCare. Thanks!

    I'd try an Archive and Install of OS X first.

    You're under warranty...they'd repair it.
