My girl friend got a macbook a couple of months ago. Yesterday, she wanted to mount a Cd, but the System hung up. So she turned the computer off. But now, she can no longer start the computer again. When she pushes the power button, her macbook comes as far as the grey screen, but the apple doesn't appear. That's all what happens. It looks a little bit like this., except that she doesn't get those weird coloured lines.
Did anyone have this problem? She's coming over to London this week-end, so I could get it to an Apple store. Still I wanted to know if there is a know solution to this problem. I read somewhere that pushing apple key + option + r + p might be a solution, other threads suggest that it's likely to be a board problem.
