Thanks for contacting Fixya Support, I am glad to assist.

What you need to do is perform an SMC Reset in order to allow your Macbook to start back up correctly to the desktop.

Here are the procedures for an SMC Reset:

The System Management Controller is an integrated circuit (computer chip) that is usually on the logic board of your Mac computer.

It is responsible for power management of the computer. It controls backlighting, hard disk spin down, sleep and wake, some charging aspects, trackpad control, and some input/output as it relates to the computer sleeping.

• If the computer is on, turn it off.
• Disconnect the AC adapter and remove the Macbook's
• Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds and then
release the button.
• Reconnect the battery and AC Adapter.
• Press the power button to restart the Macbook

If this does not work, then try this procedure:

I am going to have you take your Mac into Safe Mode to see if we can't remove a possible folder(s) that may be affecting your Mac's start up function.

• Reboot your Mac
• Upon restarting your Mac, press the Shift key.
• Hold the Shift key until you see a White Screen with Gray Apple icon and eventually a spinning gear.
• When you see the Spinning gear, release the Shift key.
• Allow the Mac to continue booting up. Also this may take a little while.

(NOTE: this may take anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes to load to the Safe mode screen depending on the performance of your Mac, but if it exceeds this time, shutdown your Mac and try just once more. It may have just frozen up the first time around for you.)

• You are going to enter the Safe Mode (which looks like your main desktop environment - the only difference is certain startup items are disabled.)

• Once within the Desktop in Safe Mode
• From the Finder Menu, click Go> Go to Folder
• Type in this line: /System/Library/StartupItems
• This path, is going to take you to the System Library folder which has all of your Mac OS X Startupitems.
• Remove all of those folders to the Trash.

*Reboot your Mac normally and see if you can access your normal User desktop environment.

Let me know if this helps.

There are several ways to do this. You can follow the instructions in the following article to back up your iTunes library on CD/DVD:


Alternatively, you can use your iPod classic to transfer your music as per the instructions in the following article:


You can also transfer the contents of your iTunes library via a flash drive or external drive, simply copy My Documents / iTunes to your external hard drive / flash drive, transfer it to your Mac, and then drag and drop the entire iTunes folder onto the iTunes icon in the dock and it will automatically import all of your songs, settings, and playlists.

There are scores of downloadable word processing programs for the MACBOOKS that are free from CNET.com Google has online programs that emulate Microsoft office format as does Openoffice.org. I would suggest looking at them for no cost solutions, especially if you are going to print out hard copies of documents only or need to collaborate over the web.

However if you want compatible documents, or ones that are able to be shared with others possibly not on MAC platform, like professors on Windows, etc. then you will need to purchase Microsoft Office for MAC. Check with your school as well. If they are on the MAC platform many times the school will provide the software via an enterprise license agreement with Apple/Microsoft. If in the end you have to foot the bill for the program and load it physically, be sure and get the educator discount, it substantially cuts the cost. You can do a search at Microsoft.com or Apple.com for the online purchase options and use EDUCATOR or STUDENT as keywords.

In order to type a paper for your class, on your Macbook, you would need a word processing application, in order to accomplish this. The most commonly used application, believe it or not,is Microsoft Office for Mac 2008 or the earlier version, 2008. However, if you don't have a copy of either and do are not moved to shell out several hundred dollars or more, I have another option for you.

Try Open Office for Mac. It is free and it does not take long to set up on your Mac.

Here are two key links for you to review for more info
FAQs about Open Office (Aqua) for Mac
Download Open Office for Mac OS X (Intel) Aqua

The word processing application you will need to use in Open office, is caller Writer" and it saves in all the formats that are readable in Microsoft Word for both the Mac and the PC.

If you have more questions on using this open source free software, please let me know. Always glad to help!

The computer cannot find the operating system. The clicking sound is the hard drive cycling to find the information. The hard drive may have bad segments that need repair. Start the computer with the Install disc in the CD drive. Hold down the C key while it is starting. Choose Disk Utility from the drop down menu and run the repair program. After the program runs, you may have to re-install the operating system from the disk. Follow the install directions on the screen. DO NOT ERASE or REFORMAT or you will lose all your data.

Unfortunately, the clicking sound means that the hard drive is bad. That is why it will not boot. If it is under warranty, call Apple support. 800.275.2273 in the US.

hey if you have the Utilities disk or any Mac OS install disk, place that in the computer, restart and hold down the c key.
That prompts the computer to boot from the cd.  If it gets past the question mark folder, then we are making progress.
At this point exit out of the installer, (unless you want to do a new install)  look through the top menus, to find the utilities options that will allow you to run a diagnostic and repair.  That should get you on the right path.  
Let me know if this gets you back up again.  
I do have some other steps that may also work if the problem persist. 
Have a great one!

If you have a samsung hard disk drive. they will start to make a noise after a while.I say samsung because I haven't ever heard another drive make the noise as loud as the samsung. This is the drive parking the heads to save power on the battery. The drive is going to fail on you if it is very noisy. (sounds like a coin hitting a wood floor) You can disable the power savings on the drive in some operating systems. Not sure about osx. I only used desktops with that os. I would emagine it is possible.

Hi Saranya,

I think I understand now what you mean having done a double translation of your post. You have somehow lost the password on your laptop. Apple Macs are very good at hiding passwords and making it difficult to break into. Some stole my password protected laptop and they have practically stolen a very expensive Brick! My advice is to try to reinstall your entire operating system which means erasing the whole drive.

All the best
Mr Pi

You are not missing anything, it sounds like the OS X software is not functioning correctly, do an archive and install on the computer and it should fix your problem.

Double click on the hard drive icon . It will open and her document folder will be on the left side. Click it and the docs should be there. Also, you can go to the toolbar and click "Go". then click on home in the drop down menu. A window will open up and you will see the document folder.
