Question about Apple Computers & Internet
Load gray disc 1 and then shut down computer. Power back up and press option key. Select the start up disc and press enter or the right icon arrow key. Wait for the thing to load. Then at the top select the Disk Utility and then select your hard drive at the left panel. Then select the button that says repair disk permissions. Then select the button that says repair disk. After that restart the computer using the hard drive and not the disk.
Next step is this tedious process is shut down computer. Now press power button and immediately press at the same time the option key, and the apple icon key next to it, and the letter P and the letter R. Now wait until you hear 3 bong sounds from the speakers and then you can let go.
Next step is to select system preferences, select accounts, select your account, select login in items and select everything in the box. Now press the - icon to remove them. Don't stress your not removing the actual programs. Your just telling the laptop not to load them upon startup.
Next step, you need to go into disk utilities and partition the hard drive into 2 sections. 1 section will load Mac OS X and the other section will load Windows 7.
Finally, you should remove your RAM and re-seat them as sometimes that causes long startups. Also, check the about my mac to make sure both RAM chips are recognized and working. Also, upgrade to the max RAM allowable to speed up startup times and upgrade to 7200 RPM hard drive instead of your 5400 RPM.
Hope this helps you. Cheers old chap.
