Well.....you seem ;like a nice person. Just put in a new hard drive. Then, get a small laptop hard drive enclosure and pick out the files and stuff you want by readin the HD though that. And, if you're young enough, you jsu get to start over and forget the other hard drive.

That Simple

Love,

Apple macbook air won't turn on


Does the Apple logo or the Pinwheel show on the screen?

There is a problem with you OSX installation. Please boot from the Recovery partition (hold Cmd+R during the startup chime), and use Startup Disk to choose the correct hard drive to boot from.
You can also restore from a backup, and not lose your data here as well.

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.) :(

My MacBook Pro will power up but in the center of the sreen it has a box with a circle and a line and the a ? in center of box.The box and circle just flash.


This is a sign that your hard drive may have failed. If you have the original boot CD/DVD for your computer, I would recommend putting that in the computer, power it up and hold down the C key to boot up from that disk, and run the "Disk Utility" program to see if your hard drive has officially failed, or if you just have a corrupted file.
Best recommendation though, would be to make an appointment at your local Apple store, and have a Genius take a look at it. If you are under warranty then you'll be taken care of, but if you haven't been backing up your data you may lose your information.
If you are out of warranty, the cost for a replacement drive is usually less than $250.

Turning on my macbook- all i see is white screen and 'no' sign


Apple has a troubleshooting document about this here: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1892
Normal procedure is to reset the NVRAM and PRAM then "remind" your Mac where to find the system folder. (This problem sometimes happens when the system folder is moved, renamed or deleted.)
It may be necessary to reinstall the operating system. (Fortunately, if you use the "archive and install" option, you can do this without erasing the hard drive or losing your user data.)

When I turn on my Mac Book Pro


The flashing folder with hard drive symbol is telling you that the computer cannot find a bootable system folder (operating system). This could be because the hard drive is working properly, or the operating system folder has become corrupted. Try booting up from the system CD or DVD that came with your Mac Book Pro and see if it can repair your hard drive.
