Hey guys. I'm having huge problems!!!! Please prepaid to me ASAP!! I need this computer to work otherwise I'm screwed for middle schools ( it needs to be fixed by Monday this week )




My Mac wont boot. Every time it boots it will crash.

This is the boot in verbosboot or however you call it, is on YouTube with this link here:


I recorded it just so you know how long it boots. This is how long it takes for it to hang on the apple logo with a spinning wheel. At the end of the log when it shuts down. The wheel freezes. Then the Mac reboots and says it restarted because of a problem. Or as I call it kernel panic.

Here are the fixes I have tried:

1. Reinstall OS X: tried it. Still nothing changed... :(


2. Reset pram and VRAM: nothing changed :(


3. Safe mode: does the exact same thing. :(


4. Verify the disk in recovery mode with disk utility: says its fine :(



This is a mid 2012 15-inch MacBook Pro

8 core intel processor

8GB installed RAM

500GB hard drive / RPM: Unknown

Age: 6 months from purchase

OS: OS X 10.8.2 / Mountain Lion AKA latest version of OSX



I don't know if it was cause I plugged in a new external hard drive but it does not seems so. But however it has been put to sleep instead of being shut down for about 2 weeks ( why? Cause I'm on holidays. And too lazy to shut it down and than wait 2 min in the morning to play games )

Was perfectly fine before I stop shutting it down...
