    Like 30 minutes ago my mac suddenly froze and I did a reboot.
    Anyway since then it doesn't wanna start up... it stays at the blue screen so mac OSX doesn't wanna load I guess.
    I have no idea what to do? my god this is depressing can anyone help me out here?

    thanks

    Dying hard drive?

    Can you boot from an Install/restore disk?

    It's easy to forget the simple stuff whist in the panic of having hardware failures.

    Glad I could help, good luck!
