    Yesterday I install the office 2008 and update the apple softwares as usual. But then, when I restart as it is required, my Macbook appear with my background desktop pictures. Then for waiting for so long, I opened then battery then put it on again then restart Macbook. All I get the logo of apple and nothing else, I have no idea how to fix this. Please help me!

    You could try the following (=doing Disk Repair in Single User mode):

    - Boot with <COMMAND> <S> pressed, until black screen appears with white letters. You should get a prompt, waiting for you to type something...
    - type "fsck -fy" <ENTER> (without the quotes), the Mac will now perform a Disk Check, and Repair if necessary...
    - If it says "The Volume Macintosh HD appears to be okay", type "reboot" <ENTER>
    - If it says something else (like the volume was modified), then repeat the process...

    Good luck.
