have a Mac Book pro A1260 that when it starts it goes to the setup wizard. I answer all the questions and then it says it is going to create my account but insted of creating the account it restarts the setup process over. Any help in fixing this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Hi

I don't know anything about Mac's, but if this is brand new I recommend taking it back to the store as it could be defective. Tell them there is problems with the setup wizard restarting and show them. They should be able to exchange it for a different one. :)

This is not a new computer it was manufactured back in 2008. I am also not a Mac user this computer was given to me to see if it could be fixed. I have tried everything i can think of like booting in safe mode or booting from a CD/DVD but its ignoring any keyboard commands like press and hold the shift key to start in safe mode.

Booting in to safe mode will take a while so be patient. Try running these tips in order.

thank you for the link but most of the suggestions there i can not do since it will not boot to the desktop because it has not created on yet for me. I tried to boot the computer with Paragon rescue CD by pressing and holding down the C key but that failed as will it just ignores it and boots to the setup wizard.

Do you have the original discs that came with the Mac? AFAIK paragon cd won't work on your Mac.
Have you tried the suggestions that should work? 2, 8, 9, 12, 14, 16, 17 or 18.
DiskWarrior might help. It's kind of pricey but well worth it.
