My computer started getting really slow all of the time and then it froze with the spinning rainbow. Normally if I simply press and hold the power button to restart it, the computer is fine. This time when I turned t back of I got a grey screen with the flashing question mark.
I am currently stuck on the grey screen of death with the flashing ? file folder.I have tried resetting the pram etc. and when i boot from my snow leopard disk the disk utility does not recognize my HD. Is there anything else I can do to fix this? Or try?
The one I'm currently using had a problem and needed to have the hard drive replaced, which was done by a local Apple store. They were also very kind to reload Lion once the drive was replaced. I reconnected the machine to our domain here at work yesterday and have been experencing very long bootup's. During the boot process I'm receiving a flashing grey Globe of the Earth, prior to seeing the Apple logo. Once I see the Apple logo things seem to proceed normally and the machine completes the boot process. Does anyone know what this grey Globe of the Earth means? and what I may need to do to satisfy whatever is causing it.
I was working with a Power Mac G5 when this strange thing happened. I had pulled the CD drive from the machine to test out a problem with a new Mac Book computer(door wouldn't open on eject command). Discovered that that we had a wiring problem (I was using the bottom connector not the top). So I go and put the drive back into the Power Mac, turn it on & the only thing on my screen is a small square icon with a picture of the North & South American hemispheres on it, flashing. Can anyone enlighten me as to what just happen & what I can do to fix it?

grey screen no apple followed by blue screen with vertical lines. Graphics and logic board replaced <6 months ago. What to do? I held down shift, it gets HOT HOT and makes noises. (for safety mode) followed by a blank grey screen and blue screen. Then tried the other way (I think it's command alt delete? I don't remember) and it turned from grey (no apple symbol) to blue blank. Then third time, grey followed by blue with vertical lines, not blocky clear lines that you can see if you are close to it.
I turned on the MBP today (Mid-2007 Santa Rosa) and everything was going fine- until the screen started to jump! Literally the whole display bounces constantly, revealing a white line at the top of the screen (as if trying to center the screen or something). This is on the LCD- haven't tested it on a monitor yet. I just had my logic board replaced about 4 months ago for a faulty 8600GT chip- I'm so hoping it's not that.
I've been using my computer like I normally do this morning. I was listening to iTunes on it and noticed it was acting a little slow and glitchy. When I went to get back on my computer I opened it up and nothing showed on the screen, it was all black. However the little white light is shining so I know it's on. I've only had my Mac for a little over a year now and have never had this problem before.

i had the macbook Core 2 Duo for About 8 months and it was working great. yesterday i left a file download in firefox for 5 hours then went back to check on it , it was working FINE, Then i got Back after 2 minutes and the screen is suddenly white and not showing anything i shut down the laptop and restarted , there was a chime and just white screen...i connected the laptop to an external monitor AND EVERYTHING IS WORKING on the external screen but the laptop screen is white!
My screen periodically starts flashing and getting huge white lines that run down the screen when I play games (only have crysis maximum edition) but then it stops and goes back to normal. Ive noticed that it doesnt happen all the time, and not at certain moments in the game (i.e. happens at one point but doesnt happen again at that same point a different time) and it will stop if i go and look only at a wall. Is this normal or is my MBP F'd?

I spilt water on my macbook pro, and wasn't smart enough to let it dry out. When I plug it into charge, no light from the charger comes on. When I turn on the computer, it starts up, the screen is still pitch black.... but if I look close enough I barely can see my startup screen. I am thinking about replacing the logic board? What should I do about this situation. I don't want to spend a ridiculous amount of money at the apple store to have this replace.
For the new macbook pro users, when going into fullscreen for a youtube video is it normal for the screen to turn greyish momentarily (1-2 seconds) while the graphics card switches? Can anyone check and report?
My computer fell off my bed onto the carpet and now the screen stays dark but the computer still comes on. Is there anyway to fix the screen? I know the computer is on because I pressed the caps lock key and I can hear it when I turn it on or off.
I received my computer back from them yesterday, but when i opened it it was COVERED in packing material? (Thats what they said anyway). After talking to them they said they would cover my laptop for 90 days from water damage or Accidental damage! Only problem is, my computer screen flashes black randomly.. Anyone have any experience with it? So far they replaced the screen and the logic board...
