    So I took my MacBook Pro 1,1 into the apple store today to get the operating system reinstalled. Anyway as I was leaving I hit the power button and it froze. I didn't think anything of it but now whenever I click the power button it freezes and I have to force shut down. Has anyone else had this problem or have a solution. Any help would be great.

    Have you tried doing an SMC and PRAM reset, this is a software issue.

    I know that when you press the power button some letters show up on the top left corner and the OS freezes, sometimes it doesn't show anything. I think this can be resolved easily.

    I reset the PRAM and it solved the problem. Easy fix. Thanks
