My MBP(early 2008) has stopped working. As said above it starts ok after pressing start with led light on. Soon after, the light stops and loading continues for a little time till the spinning wheel stops and that is the end. Have tried safe boot, pram, and also started with the initial os x dvd without any success.
I have taken out the HDD(the replacement hdd) and tested it with my friends MBP and drive is fine.Have now inserted the original HDD and still the same.
Attached is the starting screen.
Is anyone of you able to give me a hint?
