    When I try to boot my macbook pro CD (2006), this happens


    Any idea what is wrong, and how to fix it?

    Dead hard drive. You can boot from the os x DVD that came with the computer (by holding down the c key immediately after the start tone) and run disk utility to see if it can be repaired. If that fails just replace the drive and reinstall. Its a bit of surgery to replace in that model but its doable.

    Thanks for the reply, To be honest i'm looking to sell it (as i've got a new macbook pro) and the buyer wanted to know if this was a problem caused by a faulty logic/motherboard, ('cos of the lines across the screen), do you think that can be ruled out then?

    Could be both, stick a known working hard drive in there, install OS X on it and you'll know soon enough.
