So my sisters boyfriend just called and told me his MacBook (2008, white) crashed and is stuck on this screen and he said he can't do anything. I've never seen this before... Any ideas?


EDIT: so it really was just his T key stuck down.. he said he took to it with a bunch of clorox wipes and that helped.. maybe not the best solution... but... hey it works now :rolleyes::apple:

The Mac has started in Target Disk Mode.
Just tell him to press and hold the power button to turn it off and restart the Mac. Unless the "T" key is stuck, it should start to boot from the internal HDD again and boot into Mac OS X.
