When I turn on my MacBook I get this screen where it tells me to restart the mac then turn it back on. I did that and keep getting the same thing. Anyone know whats wrong with it?

Too vague a description to say.

What happens when you boot up from another bootable drive, for example your restore DVDs?

Same thing when I do that. I hold down option and it still only gives me the option to boot from the hard drive. I tried to hold down C to try to boot from the DVD and it still gives me the same message.

Take it to an Apple authorised service provider. You are getting kernel panic and it sounds like some hardware failure to me.

PS. Try restarting the mac and hold the "mouse" key (trackpad button) down and keep holding. After 30 seconds or so the disc should eject.
