    Currently im using the Windows XP partion on my Macbook which runs fine. But the Mac OS X will not start, it will stop running at the white screen with apple logo. I have tryed to re-install it from the disc but still not luck as it still stops at the apple logo. I have run several Hardware tests and its sais that there is no problems. I really need some help too try and reinstall OS X.

    Are you sure that you're using the disc that originally shipped with your Macbook? Those grey discs are very picky and will only work with the exact model they were shipped with.

    Assuming you do have the correct disc (or a 10.5/ 10.6 install DVD) in the drive and you boot up holding down the "C" button, it does not take you to the OS X Installer? If not you have either a bad optical drive or a serious logic board problem.
