When I try to run my Mac's, I am told it may be damaged or incomplete.


It has been suggested that I take it into an Apple shop to get a genius to fix it, but I thought I'd check here first to see if there is a simpler solution.

OS X Mountain Lion, Home workgroup

    Boot to recovery by holding cmd+r when starting the computer. Reinstall the operating system. This will not erase any user data, but it is still recommended to have a backup.

    What year is your Mac? What OS did it ship with? If it shipped with Lion or Mountain Lion you should use internet recovery, so connect it to an internet source and hold cmd +r when booting.
