My mackbook fell and wont turn on


Hard to answer without more details. If the apple logo turns on but then the operating system do not load, the problem possibly is your hard disk. It may be also a memory module that got displaced.
You have to un-screw all screws at the back and verify that your memory modules aren't dispaced, or a power cord/connector disconnected. In case this also fails, you have to carry your computer to a professional tech service.

How do I fix my macbook the start up screen with the apple wont stop loading


Take your RAM chips out and re-insert. Sometimes they get jostled out of position. If that don't help, then replace the RAM chips with new ones that you know work. Also, the RAM your using may not be enough memory. Then the next culprit would be a failing hard drive, so replace it and re-install the OS. The next expensive culprit would be the logic board has given up the ghost.

Wont boot up. Just beeps every 5 seconds and a


Is the beep a moderately high tone that lasts for about two seconds? If so, this is the firmware loading signal, which sounds only when the power button is held in on powerup. This would indicate that your power switch has a mechanical or electrical problem and is not releasing.
If this is not what you are hearing, please provide more detail.

The loading 'logo' wont disappear. pls help.


Hold the power button down. Keep it down until the unit powers off. Then press power to start the machine up, and as soon as you hear the starting chime (boooong) press Command+Option+P+R and keep them held down until you hear the startup sound 3 times. Then you can let go and it should start normally.

If you get the Apple logo with spinning lines underneath it but not getting past this stage then the hard disc is being seen but something is failing in the boot process, causing it to stall.
Most likely this is a case of incorrect file permissions which is easily solved.
There are 2 ways of doing it, depending on whether you have an OS X install disc to hand or not.
IF YOU DO HAVE AN OS X INSTALL DISC:
Insert the disc into the DVD drive, power on the Mac on after hearing the chime hold down the C key. This forces the Mac to boot from the DVD. After a few minutes you'll get a screen asking which language you wish to use as the main language; select English or whichever is appropriate for you.
On the next screen the Installer box will appear. Ignore this and instead on the menu at the top of the screen select Utilities -> Disc Utility. Once this has loaded select your hard drive on the left hand pane and then first click "Repair Disc" and once that has finished click "Repair Permissions".
Once these have completed successfully reboot and OS X should load up fine.
IF YOU DON'T HAVE AN OS X INSTALL DISC:
This is a bit more tricky. You have to boot into single user mode. To do this power on the machine, and after the chime hold down Cmd (Apple key) and S together. The screen will turn black and an a load of white text will start appearing and scrolling upward as the system loads. Basically this is what happens behind the Apple startup logo, only in single user mode rather than multiple user mode.
After a few moments the text should stop scrolling and you should see a prompt which looks similar to:
localhost: / root#:
Note that localhost is the name of your computer so will possibly be different to "localhost". At this point type the following EXACTLY including spaces, capitalisation and dashes etc:
/sbin/fsck -fy
now press enter, then type:
/sbin/mount -uw /
now press enter then type:
diskutil repairPermissions /
and press enter. It may take a few minutes to repair the disc's permissions, but once complete you should have the 
localhost: / root#:

prompt again. Now type:
reboot
and hit enter. The system will then reboot and should boot into OS X without issue.

Laptop on sleep mode wont start up, or load anything


Try unplugging the power cord and pulling out the battery, then hold the power button for 10 seconds.
Shouldn't have a problem starting back up from there.
