Did a forced restart and after that it failed to start!
I bought my MBP last year Sept 2010. I choose an older model as the new graphic cards wouldn´t be compatible with my version of FCP and I can´t afford to upgrade. However, I installed more RAM in the shop (authorised Apple retailer) to max it and from then on it was hot sapping alot of CPU whilst on. I´ve tried to monitor the heat problem by turning off ADOBEresourcesynchronizer, as this seemed to be the most problematic.
Recently I´ve watched a lot of lessons on Youtube on electronics and yesterday it started crashing the video. The computer got hot and CPU was high-without Adobe running. I tried and turn off the things one by one in Activity monitor without CPU changing. Then I closed the internet and did a forced restart. That´s when it happened, the apple logo and wheel of death appeared. I switched off and on -same again. I´ve done the Safeboot without success, the Pram, basically all except for installation disc-as I haven´t got it here (am on a residency in a foreign country). I have done the extended AHT and it declares no problem with harddrive nor RAM. And of course, I haven´t backed up all stuff....Once I get hold of a firewire I shall try the T-boot and see if I can access the drive from there, but am loosing hope. I really start and despise Apple for forcing this Entropy on to it´s customers. 1300 pounds is not cheap for 1 year+2 months usage. Can anyone help?
Is this a good question?
