    Hi all, have read most on this blue screen problem and I´m hoping someone can guide me in the direction to prepare my laptop.

    When I turn on the computer it goes to the apple logo and then the little spinning cog. Once this is done it goes into a blue screen, here I have control of my courser. That is all here is where it would stay as long as I would allow. I have tried to reinstall everything with my installation disc, once I do the steps it spits out the disc and it won´t go into the re-installation of the program.

    Please help me, I´m lost without my Mac Book Pro 17 inch.

    regards,
    Will

    could be a bad HDD or RAM. Try re-seating the RAM and see if that helps. If not, try swapping HDD or making an appointment with a genius.

    THIS seems to be helping people who have failed even after reinstallation.

    depends on what year MBP you have. but it will require you taking the bottom off your computer. check the documentation that came with your computer

    I understand, by re-seating you mean take it out and restore.
