    Hi i have a 2 year old Silver Macbook 2.4 (i think!) anyway i havent touched it for ages because of a problem. It wont start up! Heres what happens: I turn the computer on (it can still charge) it starts to go into its white loading screen with the funny rotating loading wheel and all of a sudden this DOS like command prompt pops up with what looks like gibberish computer talk i dont understand except the word error. Then straight after the command prompt shows this transparent big window comes up with a power button logo and says " Please Restart Your Computer" problem is i do restart the computer and it does this everytime i cant get to the profile screen or anything. Any help is appreciated i jus came to you guys b4 the shops cause i thought maybe i could fix it. Im thinkin its a software problem hopefully i wont have to reinstall OSX leopard

    How far does it get?

    What changes have you made recently?

    Have you opened it at all?
