Yo BX, HELP!!! Mac keeps freezing
 

 
Was good y'all. First time posting in this section, but I figured y'all can help me. My mac keeps freezing on me. Idk wtf is going on. I've reinstalled leopard a few times, and that didn't work. Then I tried repairing permissions, and it keeps freezing as it's repairing. Tried using the startup disk to reinstall, but it keeps ejecting. I'm at the point where I'm getting annoyed as fu*k! I'm not too computer savvy, so I a lot of this shot is foreign to me. Someone help a n*gga out please! image

Could be a few things going on, if you reinstalled something internal is going on. the first thing i would check is the memory sticks, second thing i would check is that Hard drive it may be flaking out.

Yeah I agree with ^^^. It could be a number of things. If you do not know anyone who is computer savvy, try Youtube or Google. Its a certainty that you are not the first person to experience this.

That's what I'm afraid of. The hard drive failing. How do I check to see if it is?

I've been looking on google, and tried almost everything. sh*t was working good for a few months, but now I'm back to this. I was gonna use a workout video on vlc, and once I opened vlc, I started getting the spinning wheel. The spinning wheel goes a way for a few seconds, then come right back. I wanna take it to get repaired, but it seems like I can replace the hard drive myself if I follow the step by step tutorials I seen on YouTube. sh*t is fu*ked up.

Boot into the setup disk and go to Disk Utility and try the repair stuff again. You can try resetting all the various ram and SMC stuff as well.



What year and model Mac do you have? Do you have all your important files backed up?

If it's a mac where you can swap out the RAM easily, try that before the hard drive.

I'm not sure. I'm gonna say it's a mac OS X Lion 10.7. That might just be what it's running on. I hope that's right.

Why are you still running OS X Lion though? A real question because I have a iMac. Just asking.

If it's an older mac it's probably best just to stick on an OS that it runs smoothly on. No need to update if it means severe performance loss.

I have an older Macbook Pro and wish I never updated to the latest OS year after year, cause it slowed it right down. $2000 laptop performing worse than a cheap netbook.

Just wanted to put that out there. No need to pressure people into updating and basically ruining their computers for a few new extra features.

I just switched to sierra, but my sh*t is still freezing up. I think the hard drive shot. I was running lion,because It was the only one that let me verify and repair permissions manually. El Capitan was freezing my sh*t up as well, but once I went back to lion, and updated the software, my sh*t was running smoothly.

Yea u right. I got my Mac in 2012. It's the aluminum big screen desktop. Don't know the model off top. I'm just confused, because I wouldn't think the hard drive would die so quick. Was thinking about trying to replace it myself to save money. Watched a tutorial on YouTube that seemed like it wasn't hard at all. Lion runs best for me tho. El Capitan, and all that other sh*t definitely slowed performance for me.

Damn. I can't even get into recovery mode without my sh*t freezing. Question. If I reinstall Lion, and delete all the data, that cleans the hard drive right?

Yeah if you do a proper fresh re-install from back up disks or a bootable drive it should wipe the whole hard drive clean.
