You can try disconnecting the PRAM battery--if it then starts you should replace the battery. See if you can boot to the OS disk and if you can go to utilities and run disk repair until it says no trouble found. You should also try reseting the pram and the PMU. Ralph

thanks a lot, Ralph,

i tried resetting PRAM Battery and PMU, it doesnt works,

i could start using the "apple button + s",

but i cant boot from OS disk, also the OS disk is stucked into the optical drive

searching over the net, i found that it could be the hard drive so i´m going to replace it.
