Hi, I'm new to these forums and was wondering if more knowledgeable users would be able to help me out. Whenever I start the mbp in MacOSx (MBP 15.4/2.66/2X2GB/320), I get stuck on the mac loading screen with the apple and the gearlike circle thing. Then, after a little while on the apple loading screen my mbp restarts on its own, and then gets stuck on the apple loading screen once again. I'm running my computer on windows bootcamp right now and it is working fine.


Thanks so much, any input would be appreciated!

Try booting the MBP with your OSX install DVD in, go to Utilities > Disk Utility, click the first aid tab and do a repair disk and a repair disk permissions.
This should HOPEFULLY sort the problem for you.

I'm at college right now and don't have immediate access to the OSX install DVD. Is there anything else I can do or do I need the dvd?

Try these...

Resetting your Mac's PRAM and NVRAM

http://support.apple.com/kb/ht3964

p.s for the "SMC" reset basically means turn off the machine, unplug and take out the battery, hold the power button for 10 seconds, re-insert battery and plug back in and try turning it back on.
Do all the suggestions though SMC, PRAM and NVRAM resets
If these don't work then you are probably gonna need those OSX disks.
