Question about Apple MacBook 13"White /2.0Ghz Intel Core2 Duo White/2GB (2x1gb)/80GB/SuperDrive (Z0DT) Mac Notebook
There are some words on the black screen,it says"no bootable device---insert boot disk and press any key"
i insert the install disc,but it does not work,can you tell me how to solve the problem,thank you
Joed is right, failed hard drive.
If it's under warranty, send it back for a new one.
Otherwise, you can have it replaced. Yes your info is gone.
You may be able to recover it, but at a cost up to 1K and then
they still may not be able too. Same thing happened to me. I now keep an automatic backup at all times so I don't have to go through that again.
If you are computer savvy, you can replace it yourself for under 100.00 depending on what hard drive you want in your computer.
Read your manual to see what specs your computer calls for, then get you a hard drive to meet those specs. It may also show you how to replace it, or you can do a search online and you could probably find out how. But again, this is for a techy. You could damage everything if you are not careful and don't read instructions. You will have to have another computer to format the drive bootable.
Otherwise, check and see if you can get the drive and bring it in to be replaced and tell them you will load your programs. You may save some cash. (Reference your manual).
