okay here is the deal... first time ever been on a mac and i broke it already... i was on the internet and i wanted to try to do some updates. downloaded new updates (don't remember what it was) and then deleted the old owner of the computer. it asked me to restart so i did... and then BAM!!! the problem started... now every time i try to boot it shuts down. sometimes i past the little icon but then it shuts down again. i went out to buy the MAC OS X 10.4 but it shuts down before i can use any utilities. sometimes i get pretty far, and sometimes it will only last a few seconds...

Just for the record and to help someone else in the future, what turned out to be the problem?
