Checked that the column of macintosh HD icon is ticked in finder

Restart in safe mode by holding the shift key strait after the chime untill the apple logo apears. You will have to log in with password. then open **** utillities and repair disk permissions. reboot and it should come back as normal

Grid surrounding cursor and desktop icons


You have accidentally enabled "Universal Access"
Open System Preferences from either the dock or the pull down menu under the Apple in the upper left hand corner of your screen.

In System Preferences the 4th line down should have icons for "System" one of those icons (usually the right most) will be a blue circle with a person in it. This is "Universal Access"

Open Universal access and turn voice over and zoom off.

Hard disk icon disappeared from desktop


To add the hard disk icon back onto your desktop, first click the "Finder" button in the dock. It is the dark and light smily face icon at the end of the dock.

Next, click the "Finder" menu item at the top of the screen and then "Preferences". In the "Finder Preferences" window that opens, click the "General" button. From there you can select what system items appear on your desktop. You can click "Hard disks" to re-add the hard disk icon.

Hard disk icon on the move


It may have done this in an update for some reason. Nothing to be alarmed about, just move it back to where it used to be.

-OR-

You have changed the name of the drive. Mac desktop works on alphabetised lists.
