Mark H 10000,
which model MacBook do you have, and which version of OS X is installed on it?

  • Macbook Startup Issue - Help!!!!!!!!!!!!

    My 2006 mac book had a start up issue a couple of years back, I'd boot her up to be greeted with a screen displaying a start up failed message in three different languages on a grey screen. http://www.minneapolispcrepair.com/images/mac%20error%20screen.jpg
    Looking into the issue I noticed this model of Macbooks had issues with their hard drives and they could be replaced under warranty. Brilliant, booked myself into see a Genius and ha presto a few weeks later my hard drive had been replaced. However a couple of weeks after the replacement the issue started happening again but after a few attempts the Macbook would fire up so it wasn't really an issue just a pain in the butt!! Now 18 months down the line its becoming a real issue again, it must take 7 or 8 attempts to fire the blasted thing up, 25 is my highest so how.
    My question is, what could be causing this start up issue, could it be the hard drive again???? as replacing the hard drive previously didn't really solve the issue in the first place?? Would apple replace this hard drive again????
    The MB is a late 2006 model with Dual Core run Snow Leopard
    Hope someone can help :o(
    Thanks

    This looks like a kernel panic. Try to startup the mac in safe mode (http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1455) and observe for a few startups whether the problem occurs again or not.
    If this solves the problem then you may have a problem with your software installation. Consider reinstalling os x or take a look at your system log file and search for kernel panics (http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3742).
    If the problem persists you may have an issue with your hardware. I would recommend to take it to an Apple Genius to have the system checked (free of charge afaik).

  • Black Macbook Startup Issues

    Hey guys.
    I'm having a distressful startup issue with my Macbook (13-inch, black). It's happened to me before, but that was a few months ago and everything was fine. Now it's happening again and I'm getting worried that the workaround I've found won't work anymore.
    The first time it happened, I wanted to restart my computer because I had installed a bunch of things and it was running a little slow. After I restarted, I heard the "GONG", the apple appeared, and the spinning gear also appeared. It seemed to be working, but after a few minutes, the apple changed to a "do not enter" sign.
    I tried resetting the P-RAM to no avail, and finally ended up starting up in Safe Mode (by holding the Shift Key) which at least allowed me to start up my computer. From there, I was able to reset and my computer started up normally after that just fine.
    Now, last night, the same thing started happening. There were a few different things that happened this time. For one, I got a big gray box on my screen that told me I needed to reset my computer in a few different languages. Secondly, (the only thing I can attribute the cause to) was that I had opened iChat for the first time in 5 months or so. Shortly after is when I got the box.
    So I reset and started having the same problem. I've reset in safe mode now, and am currently installing an update to OSX 10.6.3.
    The only programs running at the time of the incident were:
    -Google Chrome
    -Text Edit
    -iCal
    -iTunes
    Any help you guys have for me would be GREATLY appreciated! I took it to an Apple store the first time it happened and they didn't know what was wrong with it. :/

    Well, after booting in Safe Mode and installing the update, it started up just fine. I am afraid that this is going to happen again, though. Any help you guys have would be GREATLY appreciated.
    Thanks.

  • To people who know about Macbook startup issues, can you please help me???

    I have a troubleshooting issue regarding the bootup on my Macbook which I have been using it for a year or two since December of 2007. I have no problems of it until now and it's making me frustrated. When I was doing a homework assignment for school, I used the Spotlight search feature to search for the assignment I wanted. All of a sudden, my Mac frozed on me that I decided to press the power button to turn it off. I did it successfully until I started it back up. When the computer tries to turn it on, there are three short beeps (beep - beep - beep repeating itself for 2-3 sec) along with the blinking light indicating something's is up. Any ideas or solutions??? Please, thank you.

    Hmm. Is this series of beeps similar to a "S.O.S." type sound?
    First thing to try is reseating the memory as outlined here:

    Do you have your install discs? Has the computer been repaired or upgraded since you purchased it?

  • 13" 2006 Macbook startup issues after installing new software

    Okay, so I get the gray screen flashing between with the circle and the line going through it and the folder with a question mark. I press command + s when attempting to start up my computer and I get this message:

    Can anyone help me?! Or is this the end of my 8 year relationship with my Macbook

    Its kernel couldn't be loaded. This means that you have to reinstall Mac OS X.
    If you have the OS X DVD, insert it, hold the C key while your Mac is starting and reinstall Mac OS X. Finally, run Software Update and install the latest version

  • New StartUp Issue

    My new MacBook Pro 17" has been having startup issues recently. After I shut down, leave, and come back, the startup issue occurs.
    After pressing the power button, fans will go on, proccessing noises occur, HOWEVER, it just boots to a white/grey screen W/OUT the apple logo or round loading bar. The keyboard does not initialize either.
    The only thing that I have found to 'fix' it, is just to leave it powered off for an extended period of time. It will then boot up.
    I have tried many non-software related 'cures', and my compuer is completely up to date on all OsX software.
    Any ideas guys??

    you can try to boot to safe mode ( restart holding Shift )
    - you can attempt to boot to install disc and disk utility
    - you can boot to AHT ( apple hardware test ) to see what component is failing ( insert disc, restart holding D )
    - chances are, this is a hardware issue though. you will probably need repairs.

  • Another startup-issue

    I have a problem with system startup. My MacBook is pretty much brand new and the system is not cluttered or anything. And still the startup-process freezes even before the apple logo appears, so I just get the grey screen and that's it. I have read about other startup issues, but in those cases the computer at least booted until the apple logo was shown, so my case is slightly different.
    After unplugging my external USB hard drive startup works. It also works when I plug it into the other USB-slot. Other devices plugged into the problematic slot (keyboard, USB-stick) work and do not cause problems during startup.
    Any experiences with this problem? Would you say the USB-slot is broken in any way? Is it something that can be fixed?
    Ordinarily, I would just use the other slot and be done with it. Since the computer is brand new, however, I'd prefer to be on the safe side.
    Thanks in advance,
    Timo

    Hi
    +"Would you say the USB-slot is broken in any way?"+
    Possibly? Running an Apple Hardware Test might say?
    +"Is it something that can be fixed?"+
    Yes. It should be covered under the standard 1 year warranty regardless. Provided the fault is not down to wilful or accidental damage it will be covered under the warranty.
    You could connect the external USB hard drive in the affected slot an restart the mac in verbose mode (command+v) at restart. This should display error messages - if any - at the point where the start-up stalls. Possibly giving a clue as to what it's having a problem with? You may see an I/OKit error problem or something similar?

    Hi
    I seem to have a startup issue with NM2004s.  I get a Half Green/ Half Yellow icon in the MMC.  The 01 instance is always yellow and never progresses onto green.  I have a process status of 'starting framework'.
    Anyone else had this issue?

  • Startup issue when having more than one database on machine

    Startup issue when having more than one database on machine:
    I’ve installed two databases.
    When I shutdown one of the database and try to start it up using
    Startup pfile=’…location..’;
    I get ora-12514: TNS: listener does not currently know of service rquirest in connect descriptor
    when I try it again after 3 seconds, I get a new error, ora-01041: internal error. Hostdef extension doesn’t exist
    Shutdown and Startup gave no problems when I had one database. Why am I getting problems when I have two databases?
    I’m using: show parameter pfile|spfile; to make sure I have the right parameter locations, so the error shouldn’t be from location.
    I’ve never installed two databases on one machine, so maybe I’m making a first-timer’s error.
    Anyone know how to get this working, i.e. starting and stopping DB without issues?
    Using oracle 11gR2 on Windows 7 64bit, all is working normal.
    Thanks,
    Ayman

    Still not working though.
    When I start the services of both databases using Services, I can connect and run queries from both of the database.
    Edited by: aymanzone on Jun 15, 2011 11:47 AMFirstly ... the Oracle Service for the instance should be started for the DB you are trying to connect or start.
    Next ... from the command prompt:
    set oracle_sid=<Instance_Name>
    sqlplus sys as sysdba
    startup pfile='location of the respective db pfile'
    Now, if you want to start or connect to another DB which is on the same server (again assuming the Service is STARTED) ...
    From the same command prompt session or other ....
    set oracle_sid=<Other_Instance_Name>
    sqlplus sys as sysdba
    startup pfile='location of the respective db pfile'

  • Macbook Startup CD-ROM Sound normal ?

    Hello,
    I'm new to mac and I wonder if it's normal on Macbook startup that the combodrive tries to eject or to pull in a cd ? Typically there is no cd inserted at boot up. The combodrive makes sound before the mac startup sound appears. The same effect after waking up from sleep mode.
    Is this normal?
    Best Regards,
    Maik

    Welcome to the Forum.
    Yes. It's absolutely normal.
    As you get to know your computer, you may hear small noises during startup and when using your hard disk and optical drive. For example, your hard disk and optical drive may whir and click as they access information or load and eject discs. After the computer runs for some time, a fan or fans may turn on to cool it, producing a faint sound. Small noises are part of the computer’s normal functioning.

    My Mac won't boot up.  It gets past the Apple icon but will not display the desktop.  anyone experience this ?  Nothing has changed.  I turned it off one night, on the next and now have a problem

    The issue is most likely related to your hard drive.

  • Have any ideas re: G5 startup issues? Long post...

    My dual processor G5 (purchased Jan. 2005) is in the shop, and, of course, out of warranty. It's been down for over two weeks. Here is the story of its demise:
    Installed 10.4.9 upgrade. Began having "launch systems" and crashdump/usb crash errors thereafter. Not a lot of info online regarding these problems, so I decided to do an archive and re-install of my system software.
    Started having intermittent problems restarting the G5. Either it would chime, but not kick on the monitor, chime and kick on the monitor but hang at the grey apple startup screen, or not chime at all, with which only the fans would come on. Apple Extended Hardware Test came back OK. Still had problems after removing my USB devices.
    Problems continued after the reinstall of the system software, eventually to the point where I could not even boot from a CD. When the G5 did operate, after a short period of use it would freeze, and I would have to force a restart and pray it would boot up completely. It would reliably freeze after waking it from sleep, but also froze in iPhoto and Finder as well.
    I have tried resetting the PMU and the PRAM with no improvement. Took it to an Apple Authorized Service Center, luckily only a couple miles from where I work. They tried booting with the Apple RAM only, then the third party RAM only, no improvement. Hard drive was completely reformatted and system reinstalled, no improvement. I am waiting to hear what else they've tried.
    My G5's serial # falls outside of those involved with the power supply issues. Yet, could this be a possibility? Any other ideas as to what the problem could be, or has anyone had similar issues?
    I freelance as a graphic designer and this has me in a panic. Now using the hubby's Intel iMac to run CS2 and it's a drag.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi and thanks for the input. I just spoke to the Apple service guy and he still insists there is not a hardware issue. Apparently there is an Apple technical doc, available only to authorized techs, that refers to this particular issue, and the fix is a download and install (firmware, perhaps?) He has to contact Apple and confirm my G5 is within the serial # range for this particular fix.
    That's my best interpretation of our discussion. He was rather cryptic. But he says it's not the power supply.
    I did an archive and install because, like an idiot, I did not have anything backed up at that point. After that failed, I used up my stash of DVDs and copied gigs to our iMac until the G5 gave out. I had run the hardware test several times and each time came back clean.
    Permissions were repaired before and after updates; had it freeze a couple times mid-update. Tried booting in safe mode and single-user mode and still had the same startup issues.
    To add insult to injury, I purchased a LaCie Porsche external drive as an eventual backup drive whenever the G5 returns. Hooked it up to our iMac to backup the items I saved off the G5. It failed after the second use. Returned for replacement.
    Thanks.

  • Lenovo 3000 N200 - Startup issue from bad to worse

    I was facing similar startup issues like others (abrupt shutdown). I saw posts with similar issue so I tried the method (F1 on startup then F9 and F10) but ended up making things worse. Now it won't boot at all. Goes to "Windows didn't start successfully" and I have tried every single option (safe mode, last known good config and normal start) but nothing works.
    Any suggestion?

    remove the hdd and use linux live cd to check if it boots.

  • Intermittent Startup Issues, Fan Reving

    Has anyone else had startup issues with the G5's? I have had to re-seat memory in my lab on 3 machines and this seems, so far, to have alleviated the problem.
    The funny thing is I have had these machines for about 8 months and never had this problem. My computers are locked and access to the physical memory is impossible.
    Just curious?
    Once I tried to run in Open Firmware the computer beeped 3 times, thus telling me it was a memory issue. Each of the machines exhibited different symptoms??? One was caught in the blue screen. One in the gray screen with neverending fan reving and spinning startup wheel. Lastly, a frozen computer (in an account) where all keyboard and mouse commands are not recognized. Upon hard shutdown and restart either this machine ended up stuck in gray screen **** or started ok.

    Yeah, if you are in a humid lab (i.e. animal research lab) or some other unique environment sometimes the conditions can be less than ideal.
    Most electromechanical connections, such as the slots where the RAM plug in or PCI card slots or cable connections, are more apt to become less than optimal in such a condition.
    Another problem tends to be that the G5 is a hunk of cold metal when powered down or even sleeping and in a cold room. Humidity loves to condense on cold metal and has been known to cause problems.
    However, since all you have had to do thus far is re-seat the RAM, the impact seems to be minimal at this time.
