Question about Apple MacBook 13"White /2.0Ghz Intel Core2 Duo White/2GB (2x1gb)/80GB/SuperDrive (Z0DT) Mac Notebook

1 Answer

Not loading when i turn the computer on

Whenever I turn my Mac book on, I get a grey screen, with the apple logo, and a spinning wheel, that looks like a stopwatch counting down. It never loads up so I can use my computer. I've tried all the recommendations in my owner's manual, but still can't get it to boot. I also did the option key thing, whenever I turned it back on, and got the picture of the hard drive symbol. Any suggestions? Thank you for your time and for your help.

    Hi

    What were you last doing before this problem started? Have you tried to start it up from the Install disk 1?

1 Answer

Start the computer from the installation CD, choose Disk Utility from the menu, and then choose Repair Disk with the internal HD selected. If that doesn't work, you can try a new OS installation. If your data is important, don't erase the drive during installation and select "Archive and Install" -- if your data is *NOT* important, you can just repartition the drive and install the OS.

Seems like a hard drive problem. You may need data recovery first and then replace the hard disk. Good luck.

Hi This could be one of three things. 1. a corrupted file on your HD, or 2. the directory on the HD is corrupted, or 3 a failing HD
Try starting up from your installation DVD and then running disk utility. (Insert your DVD then shut down the Mac. Restart the Mac and hold down the C key until you see the Apple logo. Once you reach the screen that asks which language you want to use, select English and then from the menu bar chose disk utility and repair HD)
If you get a message to the effect that disk Utility cannot repair the disk, run it one more time. If you still get the message then you had better locate a service centre.
Sometimes letting the installation run its course and overwriting the existing system will fix it. In this instance, you select the archive and install option, otherwise you will erase your files as the HD will be wiped.
I hope you have your files backed up.

My mac book will turn on but it wont load up


Clicking sounds are usually the hard disk drive going bad. Replacing the drive is not for the faint of heart on the Mac Books.
