    whenever I start up my macbook it stayed on grey back ground with an apple logo and spinning thing. I press and hold the shift key once and it went to safe mode and did my diagnostic and found out that some file got corrupted so I thought maybe I'll just do another start up and everything will go back to normal. Then I restart it again but this time it wont past that grey back ground w/ apple logo w/ spinning thing again. I tried to do the safe mode again and it won't let me anymore....

    I went to apple site and i found a bunch of keyboard shortcuts, non of those help me. Any here have any idea what might happen to my MacBook. I'm in Kazahstan for work related trip and they don't use Mac here so there is no where I can buy another snowleaopard cd. Is there any other way I can make it to work.. I appreciate your help big time....

    Try booting your OS X install CD (by holding C key while powering up). Then run disk utility, and see if it's able to repair the issue.
