I bought my second hand macbook online last week. When I got it it was working fine. The first day I had it I performed a software update from 10.5.4 to 10.5.7. After the installation I booted the computer and was welcomed by a blue screen! I tried using the install disks to re-install the OS but it kept coming up with the error: This software cannot be installed on this computer.

So I sent it of to get fixed with a local Mac guru. He is not employed by Apple. He told me that he wasn't quie sure what had happend with it but he fixed it, I think he zeroed out the HD and installed OSX 10.5, then gave it back to me. Since then I have restarted it over 10 times with no problem.

Today I turned it on again to be surprisingly greeted by the blue screen which I have recently learnt to hate. I can't understand how it would happen, I have not done anything obvious that I think would cause it.

Can anyone think what the cause of this problem could be and how I could fix it?

One thing that I thought I would mention and I'm not sure if it's connected. I have been having a battery problem with the computer. It always says that the battery is at 100% but it only lasts for around 10 mins. When I turned it on today and was greeted by the blue screen I did not have it plugged in immediatly. I am awaiting a new battery...
