    Ok, I just want to say thanks apple for being a piece of **** machine.
    I have the first macbook 1.83 ghZ 2gb (that I bought from crucial) intel core duo.

    The problems I have had:

    -Battery not charging (70€ replacement because I had no more warranty)
    -Burnt and melted charger (also expensive)
    -And now the problem is unknown all I know it will not start.
    -Faulty Macbook Air
    -After the second Macbook Air the charger would not work.

    I mean you would think that so much money for slow computers would get you reliability!!... But unfortunately no.

    Anyway I need to get my data from my macbook for iMac (only good thing they make)

    Back on topic: My Macbook sounds fine the HDD running, fans...etc, but I only get a long startup process and then it goes into a blue screen I have been through a lot of forums and nothing helped me and forget about retail stores I live in a small village of Germany, I'm sure I can do this at home as long as it's not a HDD failure. I have tried reseting the PRAM

    So can any MAC expert help me on this problem?

    Thanks

    You say you've been through many forums so I am sure someone has suggested you boot to the OS X DVD and run Disk Utility, right? Does it find any problems with your Macintosh HD?

    boot into your osx install disk and then go to disk utility in the utilities menu. Then verify and repair the permissions on the disk. While you are there i would also verify the disk itself and if any problems pop up, try to repair them with the repair button. After you have done this boot up again and see if the problem persists.

    then download Onyx. it will quit all other apps when repairing so beware.

    If you are indeed at the blue screen and have not gotten to the login screen, an Archive and Install should fix the issue as long as it is not a hardware issue.
    If you just want to move the data, boot the system into Target Disk Mode (Hold down T key during boot) and connect via firewire to new machine and it will mount on desktop.
