MacBook won't start not

Hi, I have a Macbook late 2009, 4GB, El captain.  Since last year it started to slow down a bit, then applications are beginning to freeze and the beach ball are gone and... for ages (in hours) and even if I try to force that, I couldn't because everything has been frozen. So I had to force shut down the computer. Then, after a while, I couldn't start the computer and when I went to recovery mode, disk utility, the hard drive was still there but nothing about this, so I reinstalled from Time Machine. Was OK for a week, then again the same thing. For these last days, everything was ok, restart this morning I could not at all so I reinstall it again from Time Machine. I verifier check with EtreCheck, run first aid and everything seems fine. What is going on? Someone had this problem? Thanks for help.


Why not publish the report of EtreCheck?

    I suspect that your HARD drive has a problem, generally, it's like that, it won't start if the HARD drive was fried on you, try a key recovery to restore as long as day 1. Otherwise, buy a slap of casing 2.5 drive your hard drive inside, save the files after reinstall windows 8 or make the one key recovery.

    Try the following.

    If you do not, use another PC to create a rescue CD Windows 7.  Download the ISO relevant among the links below - if you are unsure, your laptop is listed as coming from a 64-bit installation...

    Windows 7 32 bit

    Windows 7 64 bit

    You must use an app like ImgBurn ( Note: you can deselect additional software during installation of ImgBurn options) to burn the ISO to a CD - a guide on the use of ImgBurn to write an ISO on a disc is here.

    When creating, type following the ESC key as soon as you start the launch of the laptop Boot Menu, and then insert the rescue CD.  Select the Boot Menu options ( f9 ), use the arrow keys to select the CD/DVD drive and press ENTER.  You can also get a prompt to "Press any key to" continuous - it if requested.

    Select the "Repair your computer" option and follow Option 2 in the guide on the link below to run the Startup Repair - you may need to run this 2 or 3 times.

    If the above does not help, take note of any error message you get during the procedure and include them with your next post.

  • VMware Virtual Infrastructure Web Access won't start not

    Hi all

    I'm a little puzzled. Yesterday my vmware server 2 was working fine, but today it does simply not at all. Or rather vmware server seems to work, but web access won't start so I can't access it.

    I created a log of errors of the problem by changing the start of web access line in vmware-mgmt to send the log to a file instead of dev/null and the result which is attached to the file. I can't make heads or tails of it, but I hope someone can help me. I have re-installedvmware Server 2 times, but it does not help.

    The host is under ubuntu 9.04 and the guest is windows xp. As I said, everything worked without problem yesterday, but today it won't work/start.

    Hoping that someone will know what to do!


    Perhaps with the failure, vmware server became unstable. Then put back in place a clean vmware server is necessary.

    To do this, all you need is to run ' vmware - ' and then do a clean install using the script that I told you.

    Remove it and install check is all vmware remains of zombie process in running and kill them.

    You will not lose the virtual machine, but are always a good idea to make a backup. During the installation of vmware server all you need is pointing to the directory containing the files of the virtual machine.

    If you have problems with vmware vmware hostd.log and/var/log/vmware proxy.log after install the own reach and we will check.

    Best wishes / Saludos.

  • MacBook Pro won't start not


    I have a MacBook Pro that, if I'm not mistaken that I bought in 2009. So, last week I had several open files and I was typing on a Word document, I typed whenever he got more lag. Then my laptop just turned off automatically and I received a message (I don't remember very well what it read) and after that I tried to turn it on again, the start bar just loaded up to half, he stayed there for 10 minutes, then the computer is turned off again. Help, I can't lose the files that I had in this computer. What should I do?

    Thanks for your help.

    Try SMC and NVRAM resets:

    Try a safe boot:

    If no success, using the original installation CD and see if you can start the MBP.

    If you can, after the language selection, the display should have a top menu bar.  Click on UTILITIES and select and run disk utility > first aid.  If the disk cannot be repaired, a new will be necessary.

    If you cannot start with the installation diskettes, make an appointment at an Apple store genius bar for a FREE evaluation.


  • MacBook won't start

    I have a MacBook Pro 2011. It does not completely start. A little more to halfway through the progress bar to become white, and it seems to freeze. I cannot start in safe mode, but was able to boot into recovery mode and ran first aid on the hard drive. It looks ok, but still does not start. I was also able to do another backup via disk utility (I think) - last prior backup via time machine was 2 weeks and there are... Any suggestions? The hard drive is faulty?

    It's a possibility.

    Run Apple Hardware Test:

    Note that an error free AHT is inconclusive.

    Try SMC and NVRAM resets:

    Try an start secure;

    If no success, start the recovery partition as you did before.

    Run disk utility > first aid again and try to reinstall os x.

    If the installation is successful, try a start.

    If still no success, make an appointment at a bar of genius Apple store for a FREE evaluation.


  • MacBook won't start or load in single user

    Hello. I hope you can help

    My sons MacBook primer is more. It happened a day after that that he has uploaded a large number of movies on iTunes.  Not sure if there is a connection.  It shows a gray bar after typing in his password - stop down after half of the bar is filled.

    I tried everything I can find on the forums.

    It does not start in safe mode

    It will start in recovery mode.  Disk utility, says that everything is ok on the hard drive. However, it is also said that it is 100% full of 'other' files.

    It does not start in single user mode - gives me the error:

    Builduser error (): construction of a user of type 0 error x 20010008

    I have reset the NVRAM

    FileVault is not enabled - at least the so-called recovery mode

    any other ideas?



    You have another Mac, you can use or borrow? You could try booting the Macbook target disk mode and connect it to another Mac.

    The hard drive should appear on the other Mac, and you can try to remove some of the films to get about 10 GB of free space on the disk. Then try to start it normally.

    Share files between two computers with target - Apple Support disk mode

    If you need to borrow one, try to see if the Macbook target disk mode - I don't see why he shouldn't, however.

  • My MacBook won't start properly...


    My MacBook Pro (with El Capitan) does not seem to start correctly... I've updated the DIVX program and after that, the pc restarted just by itself (there is no nessage that a reboot was iminent)... However there has been music of reboot, followed by the Apple logo and the loading bar (at this stage there was already something weird... the white color background and distorted)...

    After some time of loading this bar, she evacuated, background color standard, but then the pc will turn off by itself (before getting to the part of authetication)... If I turn again the same things happen...

    Does anyone know or can tell me one any solution to this? Is anyway to start the pc in safe mode, before that, so I could try to fix it?

    Thanks for the help.

    Kind regards


    • For safe mode: immediately after the tone, hold down the SHIFT key for a few seconds.
    • for the singleuser mode: immediately after the tone, hold down the command key AND the s key.
    • To start with messages: immediately after the tones, press and hold v for a few seconds (verbose)

    Let us know what is happening, last 10 or if lines of verbose would be useful if you can intercept them.

  • Startup items lost and won't start not


    I used El Capitan 10.11.1 and everything was ok. Before moving to 10.11.2, I had 4 apps like startup items on my account:


    -Clean my mac 3


    -Macs fan control

    After upgrading to 10.11.2, only of Dropbox is still to go. The behavior is baffling to me. I'll try to explain it.

    I opened the apps that have been lost as startup items. I put them to run at startup of mac under applications settings. When I restart the Mac OS X, restart the application, but the startup option in the Mac OS X startup is lost (if I go to the settings that the box is unchecked, if I look on the startup items, that the application is not). Of course, if I don't put it once again, the applications will start during the next reboot. So, this means that, after adding an application as startup item, only starts at the next restart, then is lost.

    The same thing happens if I add the apps manually as startup items instead of through the settings of applications.

    Thanks in advance for your answer.

    There may be other issues, but you should start by getting rid of "CleanMyMac."

    'CleanMyMac' is a scam and a frequent cause of instability and poor performance. Depending on which version you have, the developer's instructions may not completely uninstall. Please follow these instructions, then do as below.

    Please, back up all data before proceeding.

    Triple-click anywhere in the line below on this page to select this option:


    Right-click or Ctrl-click on the highlighted line and select

    Services ▹ reveal in Finder (or just to reveal)

    the contextual menu.*, a file can open with a selected item. If so, move the selected item to the trash. You may be prompted for administrator login password.

    Repeat with this line:


    Restart the computer and empty the trash.

    You may also delete one or more of these elements in the same way:


    Never install "CleanMyMac" or something like that.

    * If you do not see the item context menu copy the selected text in the Clipboard by pressing Control-C key combination. In the Finder, select

    Go ▹ go to the folder...

    from the menu bar and paste it into the box that opens by pressing command + V. You won't see what you pasted a newline being included. Press return.

    This laptop was headed for a few years, I'm not sure how much because it is not mine. My phone has been stalled next to the laptop and fell on it and the screen when it is dark. I tried to reboot it but the screen does not always work, it continued for nearly a day. Finally when I tried to restart, the laptop would begin to start but stop for two or three seconds in a power upward. Tried a hard reset, but it did nothing. After the hard reset the computer started, but froze on the Windows splash screen. Subsequently, he left always start after two or three seconds.
