    It just started recently out of the blue, not sure why. I did a RAM upgrade about 4 months ago, other than that there has been no hardware changes that might explain the issue. Also wasn't able to repair it with the install disc, it tells me I can't install OS X on the computer...



    EDIT: Oh, and don't mind the screen, the FPCB is cracked which is why there is the partial portion of the screen that isn't working.

    You should be able to access the Disk Utility without trying to install. Is it the install disk that came with your computer? What Mac OS X version shipped with your computer, and what version is on it now?

    I can get into disk utility and I ran a check and fixed permissions and that didn't help.

    It is not the disc that came with it, I borrowed it. I got the Macbook from a friend and didn't get a disc with it.

    Did you also repair the disk? Repairing permissions is unlikely to help. Repair the disk.

    Yea, that's what I meant when I wrote check, my mistake.

    Also, I missed answering this in my other post but it is running whatever the latest version of Snow Leopard is.
