Cleaning action went wrong, now my Mac has Problems to start
something stupid happend to me.
I tried to clean my keyboard and wiped with a tine sponge (sponge for cleaning a Fotocamera-sensor) between the right side of the EJECT-key (the key you press to get the CD out of the optical drive) and the case.
Suddenly the sponge slipped between the Eject key and the case and disappeared.
I released the eject key and tried to pull the sponge with a sharp metall tweezers (that was the only tool I had in this moment, probably a stupid choice?!) out .
I got almost everything out.
Everything was working fine at this moment.
But in the night I watched a film via VLCplayer in fullscreen and my Mac freezes. I did a cold restart (pressing the On BUtton several Minutes). Everything was fine again.
4 Days later I burned 20 DVDs and in the evening I watched a film again via VLC player full screen mode and it freezes again, so I had to shut it down hard (press On button).
But since than the tragody begann. It didn't want to start. It just showed a gray screen with the turning symbol and after 2 minutes the gray curtain cames with the white words *you have to restart you computer ...*.
I tried to start in SafeModus, that worked one time. The mac started properly again.
But the it freezes again while I was wathcing an internetstream via firefox.
Just stuff happend to me to often the last days.
So it could be a software problem or maybe I destroyed something with my cleaning mistake??? So that disconnection is the problem.
Do you have any idea?
I already released and reassamble the RAM (but Mac still doesnt start). BEcause I thought maybe they are not properly on there place. I used my Mac 2 weeks ago in the car while we were driving off road. And 6 month ago it had fallen down from the sofa on its left side on to the eletricity-plug.
And some friend said, maybe a part of the sponge came into the right fan. Put it sounds the same like everytime. Or how can I figure out if it's working?
I think the sponge sliped on to the display cable. it also sounded like tipping on plastic when I was in there.
Thanks a lot for you help and suggestions.
Sorry for my english mistakes, it's not my mother tongue. Hopefully I used the wright words t:-Do discribe my problems.
