Perpetual Spinning Wheel on Desktop
I'm trying to fix my wife's laptop and have tried the below solutions to my problem.
The Problem: Constant spinning wheel at the desktop after clicking an application. This on occasion happened at the login screen as well. Sometimes I can click on a browser and open a few webpages until it starts happening again but it usually takes less than 3 minutes to occur.
A new problem today after installing the new HD cable is that once logged in it says that the calendar is set before 2008 and it keeps forgetting the Wifi network and has me reselect on each boot up.
- Went to Apple store, they ran diagnostics and said they thought it might be the HD cable. I went out and bought one myself, installed it. No change.
- Reset SMC/PRAM
- Ran hardware diagnostics myself which was fine
- Attempted to start with Option + Power but I installed a SSD before and it only shows that.
My next thought is finding an install disc and trying to install a new copy on the computer but would appreciate any thoughts. Thanks
Is this a good question?
