thanks mayer, resetting the smc did not help... what else could i try? thanks in advance.


Let think on this one a while. I need some more clues. What will it do? Any sounds or the lights, any fan activity, any system upgrades, have you opened any email attachments. Do You have a way to boot externally or use Target Mode, an external enclosure? Since you are a contributor to the site, we need to get you fixed.
