My mac book will turn on but it wont load up

It only stays on the grey screen that pops up showing its loading and you cant do any thing with it. It worked fine before I made some updates when it told me 2 restart it the computer wouldnt load up and all you would hear is a clicking sound. The computer is about 4-5 yrs old

Clicking sounds are usually the hard disk drive going bad. Replacing the drive is not for the faint of heart on the Mac Books.

Just before it tries to start windows, go to safe mode, press F8 and select safe mode, you may need an external keyboard. That will enable you to restore the faulty/damaged files.

How come the nextbook store wont work?


Hi
When you tap the icon for the store, are you on line, either via mobile broadband or a WiFi network that is connected to the Internet?
If you cannot surf the internet or connect to you email, you will not be ale to go to the store either, and the fact that the loading screen stays running for a long time, is a strong indicator to me that you are not connected to the Internet.
Cheers

If you are running 10.7.3 or later hold down the option key while starting up and select the recovery partition to start up. Then select utilities/disk utility and try repairing your hard drive. If this doesn't work you can also reinstall the OS from the recovery partition.

Not loading when i turn the computer on


Start the computer from the installation CD, choose Disk Utility from the menu, and then choose Repair Disk with the internal HD selected. If that doesn't work, you can try a new OS installation. If your data is important, don't erase the drive during installation and select "Archive and Install" -- if your data is *NOT* important, you can just repartition the drive and install the OS.
