    Any idea why when I turn on my mac it takes 25+ Seconds for the apple logo to show up when it used to come up right away?

    Do I need to do a reinstall?

    2010 MB Pro

    Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHZ
    8 GB Ram
    500gb Hard Drive
    OS X Yosemite.

    Also it recently started like a pause in my music, it pauses for a seconds and then continues. Its like its running out of memory but I know its not.
    Also getting the beachball a lot more frequently.

    I am almost positive the fix is to go your settings and select "Startup Disk"

    Click the one you want to boot and restart.

    Usually if it takes a long time but works it's because it's searching at the beginning.

    Sounds like a hard drive on its way out.
