I would suggest going to an Apple store and asking the folks at the genius bar. I'm not sure if you want to try and reconfigure your motherboard by yourself.

Factory reset button on macbook pro


There is no 'Factory Reset' button as such. If you are running OS 10.7 to 10.10, then you need to start up from the 'recovery' partition (CMD+R) on startup. You will then be able to erase the hard drive using 'Disk Utility' and then re-install the OS.

How do I upgrade my macbook pro hard drive?


If this is the 2009 model with the DVD/CD drive, then you can add up to 8GB of RAM and a much larger hard drive. I have seen drives up to 1.5 TB, and they were not expensive (just over $100). Just search for an online retailer (or go to a local Apple service center) that specializes in upgrades for older MacBooks. You may need a special set of tools, and you can also buy a kit that will allow you to use your old hard drive as an external drive (but make sure you back everything up BEFORE you start to swap drives).

Macbook pro won't startup


The '?' is due to the computer being unable to find a hard drive.
The most common reason is a hard drive failure, but could also be a SATA hard drive cable fault.
A replacement of the hard drive is required and then a re-install of the OS

I have a Macbook Pro late 2011. 2.4ghz 4 gigs of ram 500gb hard drive. My computer wont fully start up. When it turns on it shows the apple logo the spinning wheel and loading bar. Then the bar goes away...


Yes, there is a way to backup your Macbook .. but it will require you removing the hard-drive and using a SATA to USB adapter so you can retrieve the data from it.

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.

Hardrive not showing real capacity


Sounds as if your hard drive is partitioned into 2 or more parts or was not formatted to large disk.
