Hi.

You will probably need to reinstall Mac OS to fix the problem.

Before reinstalling Mac OS, try the simple power reset below:

  • Disconnect any USB device from Mac.
  • Disconnect power adapter.
  • Since the Mac is a notebook also remove the main battery.
  • Put everything back together.
  • Restart the Mac.

If that does not work, boot using the Mac OS installer CD (boot with disk inside Mac) and reinstall Mac OS. Disconnect any USB device before reinstalling Mac OS.

If still no luck, then boot again from Mac OS disk, then select the Disk Utility from the Installer menu.
After the disk utility loads up, select the hard drive , and check if it does say Verified, if it does not , then the hard disk drive is defective and must be replaced.
If the drive is instead Verified, select volume from the list on the left, click on the First Aid tab, then click on Repair Disk. Run again Repair Disk until the utility does not report any errors.
If you see that there are no errors reported, then click on the Repair Permissions button and complete the job.

Try first disconnecting pawer, and then simply reinstalling Mac OS, that should do the job.

Regards.

Ginko.

Perform a hard reset: Press both the Power and Home buttons and hold them down. Keep holding both buttons down until you see the Apple logo appear on the screen. The logo should appear between ten and twenty seconds after you start holding the buttons. After the Apple logo appears, your iPhone or iPad will boot back up normally.
Charge your iPhone: Connect the iPhone to the iPhone's USB power adapter and let it charge for at least ten minutes.
Get iPhone into Recovery Mode: Turn off you iPhone and just plug the USB cable into computer > Hold the HOME button when you connect USB to iPhone > Release the HOME button when you see the iTunes logo.

Boot loop


Hi,
try pressing the power button and holding it for 10 seconds. Then wait a while. Turn it back on, you may press F12 or other key when the Samsung Logo appears (before Windows Logo) to see the boot options. Choose the one to check for any errors or anything else - Run diagnostics. Then also you may scan your hard drive for any failures.

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.

Pro-book 4520 won't boot. I switched on this morning. The windows (7) logo appeared, then blue/black screen and cursor only. Would not boot up. Ran diagnostics which said all OK. Still won'


The windows files are corrupted or the hard drive has issues, load cd installation disc if available, if that fails have the hardware checked for possible replacement.

Might be something wrong with your display settings. Between the Acer logo and Microsoft logo, try pressing F8 about twice per second. A menu appears. Use the arrow keys and choose the one with "VGA-mode" using the enter-key. Wait while the computer boots. Set a compatible display resolution for your display.

Try turning it on with the shift key down. This gives a safe boot. If it's going to turn on at all, it will turn on then. Also, boot it with Disc Warrior or Tech Tools and run some tests to see what is going on. I hope you find all is well, and that the repairs are just minor. Good luck.
