So about a week ago while surfing the good ol' Internet, my year and 3 month old 13" MacBook Pro decided to freeze. After trying to force quit safari, and staring at the colorful spinning beach ball for a few minutes, I decided to hit the power button. After turning the machine off, I hit the button again and upon "startup" I was greeted with a nice question mark folder icon. I had no idea what this meant so I grabbed my iPod touch (which is what I'm typing this on) and did some research. I read that it's more than likely a failed hard drive. I read that resetting the ram by holding down control option p and r on startup sometimes does the trick, and it did about 5 times. When this would randomly work, it would only be for about 10 minutes then it would freeze up again. I then put in the installation disk, and of course the hard drive doesn't appear in disk utility. I finally decided to just buy a new hard drive (320 Gb wd Scorpio black) and install it myself. So I plugged it in and hoped for the best. Nothing changed unfortunately. No drives are detected I. Disk utility. I'm beginning to think that my hard drive wasn't the problem at all, but I honestly have no idea. If anyone has an idea as to what might be happening, your advice would be greatly appreciated.
