We'll that happened to me also.. i researched and found if you goto apple.com and look up support for macbook. Look for .pdf macbook repair manuel. There you'll get start up procedures. turn off power. Then load start disk, hold down "alt/opt" button and then turn power on. Wait for a min or two and then you'll see your hard drive and start disk to choose from. Choose start disk and click enter. Be sure your disk isn't scratched.. i had that problem. Then wait... it takes awhile so be patient. You'll get the whole set up again. DONT ERASE YOUR PRIOR DISK!!! Thats where i screwed up! So.... you should be able to get what you want .. if not.. its a new hard drive you'll need to buy... i'm heading to Best Buy and the Geek Squad for my help!

good luck!

Most cases you only need to re-install the operating system.
try unscrewing the ram door in the battery compartment(will not void apple warranty) pull the tab to remove the hard drive then re-insert it,then piece back together.and power up to see if it is the same prob upon booting(that rules out a bad drive)if prob stays follow the steps to re-install the operating system

My MacBook Pro is stuck on the grey start up screen with the apple logo and a spinning circle. Sometimes it gets to a probationary circle with the spinning circle.


Unfortunately, this sounds like a problem with your hard drive/ logic board. To Fix This You Will Need To Go To The Apple Store And They Will Most Likely Have To Replace Or Repair It. the Process Takes About 2 Days - 1 Week (Just To Set Expectations.) :(

I bought Macbook air 11"


This exact same thing happened to me, the only way I got my laptop to work again was to reinstall the laptop's original operating system software. Follow the instructions on this website:

By doing this your macbook should work again, but all information on your harddrive will be erased including non-standard applications such as word ect...

Computer stays on loading page and will not fully turn on. it stays at the loading circle gray page.


Looks like an issue with your hard drive or your operating system. Try to restore the OS first (with your install CDs). If the issue persists after a software restore in recovery Mode, there might be an issue with your hard drive. Apple will help you with this because it is so new. However if you dropped it (etc.) and if apple doesn't replace it for you, You can get the part at iPhone Repair NYC and there is a guide that shows you how to put in the part at Macbook Repair Guide.

I have a mac air and I am having volume problem. When I attempt to adjust the volume I get a circle with a line over it. Also I can no longer watch video since this problem occur. The video would load play...


The problem is that the headphone jack for you Macbook Air is a copy Analog (standard headphones) and Optical (toslink) jack. The jack has a small microswitch that detects when the cable inserted into the jack is a metal analog connector or a fiber optic toslink cable. The reason your seeing the "NOT ALLOWED" sign (circle with a slash through it) is because you cannot not adjust the volume on the sound when the output is in DIGITAL MODE. To verify this, drop down the jack cover on the side of your macbook air and place your index directly in-front of the headphone jack about 1/2" away from it. Is you finger glowing red? That's because the fiber optic LED is turned on and Mac OS X thinks that there is a toslink cable inserted into the jack.
This is a known hardware problem with that type of combo-jack and affects a lot of other Macbooks, as well.
If your Macbook Air is still covered by Apple Care, take it into an Apple store and have them replace the jack. I know this is a pain, but it is the correct answer.
If your Macbook Air is NO LONGER UNDER WARRANTY, you can attempt to fix this yourself, but be warned, you could break stuff!
Here is a thread at the Apple support forums discussing this issue: http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=3255575
The above link is good background reading and will help you understand the issue further. The short answer is that many people have inserted a toothpick (other similarly sized NON METAL object) into the headphone jack, wiggled around until the microswitch is clicked off, then normal audio resumes. My 2009 Macbook Pro 17" has the same issue, but I have found that I can take a regular pair of headphones, insert the jack, wiggle it, remove it, reinsert, remove it....and repeat this process until the switch gets toggled. It's annoying, but I have to do this until I get home and can send it back to Apple for warranty work.

Mac notebook problem


It sounds like youre hard drive may be failing. Power it down and when you turn it on next, hold down the OPTION key ( should send you to start up manager ) right after you hit the power key. What do you see?
