Totally agree. Nearly wasnt going to read a block
of words but being in Hospital i got nothing better to do . . . .
On the problem, 1st do as SubZero stated and 2nd, where did you buy a Mountain Lion disk from ?? Apple dont make them for one, but they do do a ThumbDrive with the OS on it, alternately you can buy it through the Mac App Store from 10.6.5 or later.
Can you start up in Safe Mode ??
Starting up in “safe mode” may help you diagnose problems you’re having with your Mac.
Note: To print these instructions, open the Help Viewer’s Action pop-up menu (looks like a gear) and choose Print.
Shut down your Mac and wait 10 seconds.
Press the power button.
Immediately after you hear the startup tone, hold down the Shift key.
You should press the Shift key as soon as possible after you hear the startup tone, but not before.
Release the Shift key when you see the gray Apple logo and progress indicator (spinning gear).
To leave safe mode, restart the computer normally without holding down any keys during startup.
Or are you able to run a Apple Hardware Test ??
OS X Mountain Lion: Use Apple Hardware Test
Dont forget to use the Reputation System if someone has helped you out !!!
Arguing with a zealot is only slightly easier than tunneling through a mountain with your forehead!!!!!
