I have a desktop Mac from 2006 that I haven't used in a few months. I went to turn it on today, but I couldn't. I pressed the power button and the computer made the "daaaaaaaaaaaa" starting noise. Then, the apple logo flashed in the middle of the grey screen. Then the logo switched to a circle with a line through it, like a "not allowed" symbol. So I waited for a few minutes, and the same symbols kept flashing. Then I tried restarting it and holding down command, shift, V. It gave me a black screen, and it read: efiboot loaded from device (lots of letters and numbers) boot file path: \Users\katiewilliams\.Trash\System\Library\CoreServices\boot.efi Loading 'mach_kernel' ... root device uuid is '5E8499B0-2W1C-42F9-98CF-8AB29BA1E47E loading drivers... error loading drivers I barely know anything about computers, but it seems strange that the "file path" goes through the trash. Does this maybe mean that some crucial file has been deleted? I have moved several times since I bought this computer, so unfortunately I've lost all of the disks that it came with, so I can't load any disks to try and fix it. I also live in Asia, and there aren't any apple stores that can help me. I'm really worried, because I was stupid and lazy and never backed up any of the photos on this computer. Will they be lost forever?? Does anyone have any ideas to help?
