"You need to restart your computer. Hold down the power button for several seconds or press the Restart button."

I get this message everytime I turn on my MacBook Air and cannot get past it.

When i turn the power off, it hang for quite a long time and this screen appears, http://www.flickr.com/photos/36836508@N04/4142594130/

Macbook Air OS x 10.5.

Before this happened, i went on skype and firefox. But then it hanged, so i had to hold the power button to shut it down. I meant to restart it back but then i couldnt. This problem appears.

Just before it happened, i dont have any start up application. But before, they were adium, skype and transmission. And my 'HUAWEI mobile connect broadband internet' connect automatically. and i dont use time machine.


please help me.

As others have said, this is Kernel Panic Message.
I had this error when I had Yoggie Personal Security Installed.
It turns out it's some incompatible software (In my case, not 10.6.x Compatible).
So if you can get to a screen, try disabling anything you can, it gave me around 3 minutes before it ave me the error.
Also, 3rd party/damaged RAM/other hardware MAY cause this error, try checking the RAM if nothing else works.
Can you explain where EXACTLY it "stops starting up"?
Thanks
Joseph Duffy
