OK you need to get recovery disks, they are best purchased from Apple.

I am a different expert. i work with macs and this was in the ms office section

But there are a few things you can try before the recovery disks

The first thing to just shut it down completely

hold the power button in for a few seconds until it turns completely off

press the shift key down and holding the shift key down

press the power button to turn it on

keep holding the shift key down until it gets to the login screen

if it does not get there we may have a bigger problem than i think

if it does put in the loging

it will be in safe mode where some things are limited

but if it does get into safe mode

restart it normally in regular mode and it it may just start working

otherwise we can see if there are some things we can do in safe mode to get it to work

Safe mode does also not work. I can see the progress bar is loading about 75% and then i have the black screen with the loading wheel showing for about 3 seconds and then disappears again. After about 2 secounds the loading wheel is back again. Looks like it is stuck and cant Get any way.
