Hold down the option key when powering the Mac on. Insert your retain installation disk. Boot from that disk by selecting it from the list (it should show up a moment after you insert it). From there, you should be able to walk through the installation steps easily. Make sure you've backed up anything you don't want to lose if you erase the disk before installing OS X.

Mac book pro. Black screen cannot start but with boot sound


Have you tried connecting an external monitor.

A boot chime means the Mac has passed POST, that the screen remains black initially suggests there is a problem getting image to screen which could mean a bad cable to the LCD or the LCD display its self is having problems.

By connecting to an external display you verify the graphics on the logic board is functional, and it could get you up and running till the display problem is fixed.

Also try powering up and when you hear the chime, hold down the COMMAND+OPTION+P+R keys, and keep holding them till the machine has chimed 3 times, this will reset the 'BIOS' in case there is a glitch there stopping the display from showing up.

MacBook Pro took a drop, boots up but nothing on the screen.


The screen, the cable that connects to the screen or something internal has taken a hit. You'll need to get it serviced to find out which. Sorry, but there's not much diagnosis we can do from a distance.

Lost install disk for Mac book pro My 13" Mac book


You will need some install disks to even begin working on your issue.
Your options:
  • Find someone with the same model MacBook Pro and borrow the disks.
  • Buy a copy of Leopard (10.5) or Snow Leopard (10.6) and use them. If you are going to buy a set you might as well update to Snow Leopard (10.6)
  • Check eBay for install disks but make sure they are for the same model MacBook Pro.
  • Contact an Apple service center and purchase a replacement set of install disks.
Once you have a install CD, I would recommend backing up your system by making a disk image of the hard drive to an external drive. Then doing a clean install and then using the Migration Assistant to restore your user files to the clean install on your hard drive.

Apple mac book pro wont boot it has cd stuck in side


Try starting with the button below the touchpad pressed, that should eject the cd, then try starting from a system disk, put the disc in and hold the "c" key and start. If it boots from cd then in your application folder choose utilities and in there find disk utility, select your hard drive and then select the repair disc feature, when that has run select repair permisions, if all is well choose start up disc from the utiliyies and select your hard drive (it should tell you what os version it has, if not you will have to run archive and instal and then run software update.

My mac book pro is password locked by another user


In order to override/reset the root level password on your system you can boot up from a system disk (insert disk and restart holding down "C" key). If you don't have a system disk, there are other ways to do it: http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?story=20080414140636495
