So, the past 2 days, when i boot up my MBP, upon reaching my desktop, i get this giant box that says it cant find my trackpad or a bluetooth mouse.


I dont own a bluetooth anything, but i dont understand why my trackpad is not being "found"!


Its getting kinda scary to be honest.

Yesterday i had to reboot 3 times in order to actually use the darn thing!!


Does anyone have any explination for this?


For what its worth, i took this bad boy in about 8 months ago to have the logic board checked out and ultimately, Apple replaced the battery, the super drive and the logic board itself.


Thanks in advance.

    System Preferences/Bluetooth - turn it off.



    Disconnect all peripherals from your computer.


    Boot from your install disc & run Repair Disk from the utility menu. To use the Install Mac OS X disc, insert the disc, and restart your computer while holding down the C key as it starts up.

    Select your language.

    Once on the desktop, select Utility in the menu bar.

    Select Disk Utility.


    Select the disk or volume in the list of disks and volumes, and then click First Aid.

    Click Repair Disk.

    Restart your computer when done.
