Macbook will not boot


Could be an fsck (disk check) - how long has it been like that?

Otherwise, boot while holding Cmd+S and post the last few messages that pop up.

Macbook not starting up past the grey screen with spinning wheel. started in command v and have black screen with lots of white writing


Seems like a hard drive problem. You may need data recovery first and then replace the hard disk. Good luck.

There is a spinning wheel on the screen and I can't shutdown or dO anything


the spinning wheel indicates that the computer is trying to either read or write to the hard drive.
It might be an indication that your hard drive is starting to fail. Backup if you can.
Try booting from the Mac OS install disc. insert the disc and restart while holding down the "D" key on the keyboard. If everything boots OK and doesn't act "weird", your hard drive is failing.

Hello, since yesterday my macbook pro is frozen, just don't know how to fix it! My macbook pro was frozen with the apple and grey screen, showing timeclock, so this morning i restarted it with the power...


Take the 2 RAM chips out and make sure they are compatible with your computer and make sure the RAM chips are not broke or defective. Re-insert new RAM chips and make sure they are firmly inserted in their bays. Also, install disc 1 of your 2 disc gray set and hold down C key to boot from disc. Then click on tab for install English. Then go to the top of the screen to utilities and click on disk utility. Now on the left side of screen select your hard drive and then at bottom middle of screen select repair disc. Then when that's done select repair hard drive. Now quit the disc and choose restart from hard drive. See if that don't help ya any. Also, could be bad boot sector in which you will have to save all your data and re-install the operating system. If that don't work, then look into getting a new hard drive and then re-install the operating system. Take your computer into the Apple store and have the Apple dorks look into it if your still under warranty, because you just dropped down some serious cash on this machine.

Computer froze and will not restart


Hi,
You need to reset the firmware.
Remove the battery, and boot up but holing the power button down until you hear a loud Beeeeeeeeep, and the lights start flashing. Let go, and wait.
Regards.

MacBook won't start up.


If you have your Mac OS X Install disc, insert it into the drive.
Restart the computer and hold down "C" while booting.
Choose your language.
Select "Disk Utility" from the "Utilities" in the menu bar.
Select your Macbook's hard drive in the left sidebar.
Click the "First Aid" tab thats along the top of the viewer window.
Click "Verify Disk" (not verify disk permissions)
If this shows errors click "Repair Disk"
Once completed close the Disk Utility window.
Restart the computer.
If this fails to fix it as well then your next option would most likely be recovering your files from the macbook either by booting into target disk mode (hold down T at startup) and transferring them via a firewire cable, or removing the hard drive and hooking it up to another Mac to get the files. Then do a clean install of Mac OS X using your installation discs.
