  1. No, safe boot stops also some way along before the desktop. One thing I haven't mentioned is how it started. After a work break I came back and the screen had gone dark(not black) and could still see the screen saver image flickering. I was not able to get any reaction with any keys so I forced a manual shutdown with the power button. No joy since.....
  2. That is not the problem. It has booted to the screen(a couple of times): You need to restart your computer.Hold down the power button for several seconds... It has not managed to get itself any further than that.
  3. When inserting the dvd the spinning wheel goes for a while and then stops. No further.... Does the inserted screen image give a hint to you guys? Could it be the graphics card?
  4. Tried disk warrior dvd though again it does not fully load. Have not used time machine
  5. Hi All My MBP(early 2008) has stopped working. As said above it starts ok after pressing start with led light on. Soon after, the light stops and loading continues for a little time till the spinning wheel stops and that is the end. Have tried safe boot, pram, and also started with the initial os x dvd without any success. I have taken out the HDD(the replacement hdd) and tested it with my friends MBP and drive is fine.Have now inserted the original HDD and still the same. Attached is the starting screen. Is anyone of you able to give me a hint? Thanks

  7. Hello Members I have a MBP and working in Fusion. The 5 button mouse, optical, cable usb connect is not working properly. If I look at the xp guest device manager I see two HID compliant mouse and the installed(but with exclamation mark) Intellimouse. If I want to change the Intellimouse mose settings through the ui I get the message: some mouse settings might not work until you connect a microsoft mouse to a usb port on your computer... I have tried to uninstall those HID mouse but then I loose the mouse alltogether. Would any of you be able to help me with that? Thanks

  9. Hello I got a MBP and thinking of using fusion and xp for my work. Now , I would like to separate the guest os from my documents(similar to indows based system).It would give me more safety if the OS fails. How would I do that best; adding a second partition to a large (single disk) where to guest OS is or, adding another disk which will have the documents on it how would I go about to do this the best way. Thanks a lot NT
