Hm, try leaving it on over night, sometimes if you turn your laptop of from the power or hold down the power button when allot of programs are running or if you get the program not responding thing happen this can mess up your laptop and will take ages to boot up,
or it might never boot again
so you will need to take the install cd/dvd that came with the laptop, insert it into your laptop, reset it again, then as u hear that sound apples make as you turn it on, hold down C untill it boots into the cd/dvd then go from there.

Hello,

Go to System Preference on your Mac which is a setting icon (Gear) then go to DISPLAYS > ARRANGEMENT >CHECK ON THE MIRROR DISPLAYS.

You can also set the monitor arrangement sideways or upside down.

Hope this helps.

Powers down shortly after boot


Thank for contacting Fixya, I will be glad to assist you.

Here are some steps you can try to resolve the issue:
• First, hold in your power button for approximately 10 seconds to do a hard shutdown.

• Once your Mac is shutdown, you will need to perform what is called a PRAM reset (Parameter RAM)

• Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command, Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously .

• Turn on the computer.
• Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.

• Now, hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for the third time.

• Release the keys and allow the Mac to start up.

• Please update me to let me know if this works.

Thanks.

My mac wont boot up


you mean it does not go farther than the apple's logo? did you try installing a fresh copy of the operating system.while installing if you observe that it could not be installed then you should know that your hard drive needs to be formatted with zero-fill.

My Apple mac book pro will not boot up. I have a grey screen. I've taken out the battery held doen the on button for 5 seconds and re connected it nut I've still got a grey screen. Help


The grey screen is the bios of your laptop is booting, this is freezing for some reason.
Do 3 things.
Try holding power button down for longer at least 10-20 seconds.
do a PRAM reset, apple symbol, alt P & R keys all held on boot up.
Do a smc reset.
  1. Shut down the computer.
  2. Disconnect the MagSafe power adapter from the computer, if it's connected.
  3. Remove the battery.
  4. Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds.
  5. Release the power button.
  6. Reconnect the battery and MagSafe power adapter.
  7. Press the power button to turn on the computer.

Harddrive does not boot up to desktop


It is the hard drive. The EXACT same thing happened to me. You will need to replace the hard drive. You can backup all the info onto another computer using a firewire cable as I did. Boot your computer and hit "apple" "T" while booting, a firewire logo should appear and bounce around the screen. Makes your computer a giant external hard drive.
