Macbook won't get passed loading screen?

Postby eoforwic » Wed May 02, 2012 3:17 pm

We have a magnetic ornament on our coffee table and, stupidly, instead of putting the ornament on the floor to make space for my mac i put my mac on the coffee table and put the ornament on the bottom right corner of the bottom half of my open mac.

When i came back, i suddenly realised and pulled it off, but by this point the bottom right of my mac was groaning and whirring.

I restarted it and it worked a few times but froze at some point each time.

I then tried again and since that time it has never got past the grey 'apple' loading screen.


I have stupid deadlines and other stupid stuff!

well firstly unless you're a graphic designer you don't need a mac! :p

It sounds like you have broken something with this magnetic orament, but it must have a serious magnet in it to ruin your laptop, the best thing I can suggest is attempt to boot it with a MAC OS CD in it, and or see if you can borrow a harddrive off of someone and attempt to install another OS to see if it's your harddrive which is broken
