    My Macbook pro is not booting properly. When I start it up, it goes through the normal process and gets to a point where a screen comes up telling me: "You need to restart your computer. Hold down the Power button for several seconds or press restart now"

    This happens every time.

    I tried to start in safe mode and holding down the option key and selecting the mac partition. Neither would work.

    Any help would be great.

    Thanks for any help...

    I think something in your file system has got corrupted. I suggest an erase and install. Most of the times its a good solution to problems.

    Try verbose mode to see what happends, power on and immediately press and hold command-v. You will see then if it tries to repair the filesystem and fails for example.
