So, we were updating my bf's 17" PB with 10.2.8 when right in the middle of installation the screen went black. we did a restart by holding down the power key and now the computer will make it to the Mac OS X loading screen but after that, nothing. just a blue screen and the cursor. it won't do anything from there. any help?

thanks, Phil

Do you have a CD you can boot from? Last time I had a similar issue to yours I did the following and it seemed to work. unplug your power adapter from the machine and remove the battery. Let the machine sit for a good half hour or so. After I did the following it allowed me to get the machine into a bootable state where I could access the OS. Good luck!
