    Macbook Pro Wont Start
    When starting the Macbook, the screen goes grey and the apple icon appears. Then a spinning icon appears and a loading bar. After about 1/10th of the way, it resets three times, then shuts off. I tried holding Cmd,ctrl,p,r when starting up, this has made the screen brighter but the result is still the same.

    Thanks for any help!

    iMac, i7 4GHz, 32GB memory, 1TB Flash Storage, OS X.12.6.
    Pop in your system install disc and see if you can boot from the disc, and if so go to Utilities > Disk utility > Repair Disk and see what is reported.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
