I am honestly frustrated and confused! I have a late 2011 macbook pro, (got it in August) 15", 8gb of ram, and an ugraded 750gb HDD. This morning it was working perfectly normal, then I take it to school and at school it was all messed up and now it is messed up as well!


So this is what happens. I boot up the computer, takes a considerable amount of time... then my mac loads normally, and it seems all good. Then when I click something it goes crazy! What I mean by that is, the dock first disappears for about half a second, then reappears. Then it disappears and then the desktop background becomes gray with all the icons on the side (like windows the shortcuts on the actual desktop, not dock) are still there, and it flickers or more flashes then what happens and then what happens after 20 minutes or so the screen goes gray and shows the loading icon and thats it (plus the fan is going like crazy! For a while it wouldn't even start! I tried to boot it up in safe mode but it would go almost half way and then just shut down! Then i did the option + command + P + R and that brought me to disk utlility for a couple of times the verify didn't work, and stopped half way through, and the repair, but I kept on doing it and it said it's all good! So i reboot and same problem! Now I can't go back to that disk utility and when I started my mac again it does the flickery thing, then the gray screen but this time it loads and then it flickers an image of a desktop and goes straight to the screensaver... and I can't do anything about it, it's frozen on the screen saver! The screen saver doens't lag however, it acts normally! But if I click anything it sticks on the screen saver! I think the problem is the HDD, but I don't know! Can anyone help me?! Please!!!!!

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.3)
