Hi, I'm brand new to MacRumors. I've tried looking through the other threads to find my problem without luck. I could of course be an idiot and looking in the wrong places. My older 15" MBP 2008 2.2/2.4 GHz has big Purple and Green Blocks running vertically down the screen it also has a message that is hard to read but says roughly "your Computer restarted because of a problem press any key for a few seconds to continue starting up" See attached photo. View attachment 362230 Any ideas on what I should do before forking out the $$ to get it looked at. It's not our main computer but I would like to get it running again so that the kids can use it. Cheers, J.
