    Thank you for your suggestion . I do not have a restore cd, so was unable to do what was asked. I have since sent my comp. back to the apple and they are looking into it. Thanks for trying anyway.

Place the system restore cd in the drive and restart. Hold down the C key til you see can tell it it restarting from the Cd. Once the screen to restore comes up, press the esc key... go to the top of the screen see the menus... choose the first aid utility. run an first aid diagnostic. choose repair if diagnostic finds issues... After you finish with the repair. quit and restart. Hold down the eject key while restarting. Remove restore CD.
let computer continue to restart. See if it gets beyond the whiring sound and if it boots up correctly.

Let me know if this does not work.

I can't here any sound from my laptop because I have to format my laptop and setup winxp so I need a sound driver can u give me the solution


Hello,

what's the model and maker of your laptop? You need to go to the site of your laptop manufacturer, go to the software and download section of the site, enter your laptop model and your operating system and you will find the driver in which you want to download.

Good luck.

InstallatIon of Mac OS X 10.4.10


White screen issues on your Macbook are more often than not, an indication that you may have a connected peripheral or device which may be hindering your Macbook's normal start up function

What you need to do first, is remove all peripherals from (printers, scanners, USB drives etc.) and then reboot your Macbook.

If your Macbook starts up normally without a white screen, leave all the peripherals disconnected and see if you can proceed to run all of your software updates, in Apple menu>Software Updates, first, including updating to the final version of Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger, 10.4.11.

Once all of your updates are completed, then you will need to go through a process of elimination by connecting one peripheral at a time, then properly shutting down and restarting your Macbook with each device, to see if your Macbook goes to a White screen.

Depending on the number of peripherals you have normally connected to your Macbook, this may seem a little tedious at first. But considering how bothersome a White screen is, it will be worth it solving the mystery of which peripheral is causing the white screen and failure to boot up normally.

If it turns out that one of the devices you had connected was in fact, causing the white screen, this will be the opportunity for to research online, visiting the affected device's manufacturer's website or even use Google, to confirm if there are any known issues and/or updates available to address that issue.

There are other variables which can come into view with a white screen issue, but this is a good way to start in terms of working toward a viable solution to this issue with your Macbook.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have more questions.

Downloaded software updates, computer won't start up now


If your MacBook is only four months old, it is under warranty. You can call Apple at 1-800-SOS-APPL and explain your problem, and they will walk you through a solution for free.

Failure to reboot after a Software update.


Hi stuart,
It sounds like you either may have a corrupt system or a faulty hard drive. Try reinstalling OSX with the system discs that came with the computer. You can still keep everything if choose the "Archive and install" option.
If this doesn't help, then I'd say the hard drive may have seen its last days.

MacBook Software Updater - continually prompts to install an update


You're probably not actually flashing the firmware, but downloading the utility to do so. Follow these steps:
1. Quit all other open applications. Open the MacBook Pro EFI Firmware update which is in your Utilities directory

2. Click Shut Down in the MacBook Pro EFI Firmware Update window and wait for your computer to shut down.

3. Press and hold the power button on your MacBook Pro until the power indicator light flashes repeatedly, then release the power button to begin the update.

A status bar indicates the progress of the update.

Important: Do not interrupt the update.

Your computer restarts automatically when the update is completed and opens the MacBook Pro EFI Firmware Update.

4. Click OK, if the firmware is now up-to-date.

This is a very broad question so I'll cover as many answers as I can think of: 1) Force quit frozen applications (Apple-Option + Escape) 2) Force shut down (hold power button for 5 seconds until it turns off) 3) Force restart (Apple-Option + Power Button)
