What is the 'Same Message' everytime you are getting? Normally after doing a software update, it will check for updates again, and if there are any, it will update them.

it says.... 'you need to restart your computer, hold down the power button for several seconds or push the restart button'


that's it.



it has some writing/codes in the background...

im obviously clueless to macs, so any help as to how fix this would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like a kernel panic. Try running repair disk in disk utility.

If you cannot start up try booting up in safe mode. Hold down shift when booting up. Then go to applications>utilities>disk utility.
