Hi, I have had my macbook for quite a while, and it has had problems before like a non working battery and random brightness changes but ever since I installed the latest security update it will not boot up all the way, first it takes a long time for it to pass the white screen with the Apple logo and loading circle, after that it reaches a blue screen, with no response. Once it made it to my desktop background but none of the icons or dock showed up. Any help?
I have the same problem mentioned in the original message. I downloaded the updates and my computer will no longer boot up. I put in Disk one of the install disc, but that did nothing and now I can't get the disk to eject. I was going to try disk 2, but can't get disk 1 out.
If you do have a friend with a mac, you can plug a firewire drive into both the macs, connected to each other. After that, start up your mac in target disk mode and you can diagnose your problem from the non-problematic mac, which should be your friends.
