I have a Mac Book Pro, over 5 years old, that upon startup, I get a very jumbled screen, with a dialog box in the middle that says "To restart the computer...", and that verbage is in various languages.

 

Any ideas?

What you are experiencing is what's called a kernel panic which is hardware related.  Check out KB Articles & User Tips:  http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=106805 Mac OS X: "Broken folder" icon, prohibitory sign, or kernel panic when computer starts,  "You need to restart your computer" (kernel panic) message appears (Mac OS X v10.5, 10.6) and User Tip:  Kernel Panics? Don't panic too!

 

 

 

Which OS is installed on your MBP?
