Blue screen error is one of the most common error among Mac users.What can be more frustrating than finding your Snow Leopard not starting up. Instead of the Finder, a blue screen appears and you have no access to important data that you want to access. No doubt, the situation is annoying, but it can turn to be a simple problem if you apply some Mac Recovery fixes to make your Mac bootable. Before coming to the solutions, let's consider a scenario depicting the discussed problem.

In place of blank blue screen, you may also see a blue screen with a colored pinwheel. Since the boot process doesn't proceed, you have no data access. Most of such problems occur because there lie few corrupted or incompatibile applications or startup items that might be preventing your Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard to start.

permissions and startup disk.

If all the above measures fail, the last resort is to use installation disc to reinstall Mac OS X and restore the data from backup.
