    MacBook won't show picture or start now
    My MacBook pro randomly stopped letting me sign in, I then signed in using safe mode and it worked, I then read that if you reset the pram then it should solve the problem. Ever since I tried to reset the pram my Mac is now only showing gray on half of the screen and black on the other half.. I'm not sure what's wrong. Please help

    You gave us no info whatsoever on your MBP? Year, model, version of OS X?

    Do you have your original install DVD? If so, boot with the DVD and use Disk Utility from the DVD to run a verify and repair on the hard drive. Let us know what it says.

    It sounds like the graphics chipset on your 2006 MBP is defective or there may even be a problem with the logic board. Can you attach an external monitor or TV to the MBP and get video that way?

    If the graphics or logic board is defective, that would be an expensive repair which would not be worth doing considering the age of your machine.

    I have not tried because I don't have the cable. I will pick one up but it worked perfectly in safe mode. But ever since I tried to reset the pram, now it won't work
