Took my MBP into shop to try and figure out why I keep getting the rainbow spinning ball on everything I try to do (computer freezes for 45 seconds to several minutes) Guy behind counter told me that this log is not normal and that he would have to "look into it" for a fee. Guy seemed shady, so I thought I would ask here. Any input is appreciated.

 

Thanks....

    wyitearp,

     

    which model MacBook Pro do you have, and which version of OS X is installed on it?

  • wyitearp Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Hello, Thanks for your reply.

    wyitearp,

     

    your Model Identifier above tells me that your model is a 13-inch Mid 2009 MacBook Pro. Thus, you’re going to need the grey Mac OS X Install DVD that originally came in the box with your MacBook Pro. You’ll need to boot from that DVD (by holding down the C key while your MacBook Pro restarts) so that you’re running the version of Mac OS X that’s on it. Once it’s running from the DVD, select Disk Utility from the Utilities menu on the menu bar. On the left-hand side of the Disk Utility window, select your internal disk’s boot partition (typically called “Macintosh HD”). On the right-hand side, press the Verify Disk button if it’s not greyed out; if it is greyed out, or if it reports that errors were found, press the Repair Disk button. Once the verification/repair is completed, exit Disk Utility and select Restart from the Apple menu to restart in normal mode. Do you still get the “beach ball of doom” on everything that you try to do?

    Hello Melophage,

     

    First, thnanks so much for your reply. Second, yes, I am still getting that **** ball on virtually everything that I click on, everything! Third, I moved a few months ago and the movers lost one of my boxes which included the grey disk that you mentioned. So....any other ideas?!! BTW, after typing this message, that ball shows up and does not go away for approx. 7 minutes. I could not do anything, click on anything, open anything, etc.

     

    Thanks again, Wyitearp

    wyitearp,

     

    you can buy a replacement pair of the grey installation DVDs for your MacBook Pro from either Apple or iFixit.
