My MacBook Pro keeps crashing?

Hi there

my problem is that my macbook pro crashed and when I boot it up it will show the apple logo and then shut down again.

I fixed it using the disk utility to erase my Mac HD drive and re-install OSX mountain lion using time machine.

then my mac worked properly for a period of time then the problem happened again.

I tried downloading OSX using internet recovery, but my connection is slow, so I got the timeout error.

so what I did was downloading OSX installer using uTorrent because I live in Syria and the apple store gives you a 1009 error.

so I mad a bootable flash drive using the installer, but the problem kept on happening.

Is it hardware problem or what???

Thank you

First it's not a very good idea downloading OS's (or Apps) off of Torrent sites as they tend to be incomplete or infected.


Do you have the original SSD that came with your system or did you upgrade it with a 3rd party unit?


I suspect you are being blocked due to where you are located. I think you will need to take a trip to a different country (Turkey?) in order to gain access to Apples site.

You really need to get a real copy of OS-X. You should have a recovery partition on your system so you can recover your OS and download a full image of Lion or Mountain Lion OS from Apples site.

Once you have the correct software you'll need to create a bootable OS-X thumb drive. I suspect your SSD has a corruption or is failing and will need to be reformatted and might need to be replaced.

Thank you , now I'm in Lebanon, doing a check up for my Mac, there is a retail store here, they will do the check up, if it's a hardware issu, I'll send it to the U.S.

I'm still waiting for my copy of the OS , to arrive from the U.S. as there is not any connection fast enough to download it from the Apple store.

This is the first third party thing I've ever done on my Mac, but I won't let them do any thing to the hardware other than the check up.

About the recovery partition, I don't know how to creat one, I have the recovery thump drive, but I only used it once, I'll get my sister to make me one and send it my way.

All the hardware stuff are the original ones that came with my Mac.

Sorry for the confusing reply, but my thoughts are in chaos, and for my English also.

Thank you a lot, this was really helpful.


If you got a White Apple Logo'ed USB thumb drive with your system you have a bootable thumb drive with OS-X Lion installer software on it (full installer). You can't use a straight copy of it as it's setup as a bootable drive. Best to use the original to fix your system now, and when your working again we can talk about making a bootable thumb drive.
