    take the batt out then hold the power button. then put batt back in and try to restart. if that doesnt work find the diganostic CD that came with your computer and follow instructions. if all esle fails call apple tech support or even better visit the store. they can hook your computer up and usally copy all your data off it.

    It would also help us figure out what is wrong with it if you tell us the last application/install you where trying to do/install.

    Have you tried booting from a CD? if you have the CDs that came with your PB you can start up while holding C. That will tell you if its the HD or if it is something else like the processor or the MOBO.

    Good Luck.
