    Hi there i have been given a MacBook by a friend and at first when i got it was stuck on a blue/grey screen,
    Anyway i booted into safe mode as booting into disk Utility wouldn't load and when safe mode loaded i had the option to load my & girlfriend account but when i typed my password in it just stuck on a multicolored page with nothing showing and it kept returning me back to the safe mode log in menu.
    After much reading on forums i got to a page that sugested this to enable Admin Account.
    after entering this i am now presented with a "Select Language Menu" but no matter what i try it brings me back to this Language Menu.

    Again after more reading i was told to do this,

    And again it brings me back to this Language Menu.
    Please can anyone help me i'v searched and read everything allover please

    Thank You

    Whenever you're given a used computer always reinstall the OS. Older MacBooks it came on a DVD, newer ones you use the recovery partition hold <option> R on power-up (before the chime)
