Hi. I hope this has not been posted about. I saw some that were close to my problem but I couldn't relate the info to my situation. You guys seem very helpful and I would greatly appreciate some direction. A few days ago my macbook pro fell from my desk from about 3 feet off the ground. I picked it up and it worked fine for a few minutes then it froze and I turned it off. when I turned it on there was a clicking noise that wouldn't stop. My roommate googled it and the results said it was probably that the hard drive was damaged or broken. I go to school in st. Mary's and there are no apple stores (or anything really) around here and I need it for my classes so I figured it would go quickly if I just fixed the hard drive. I ordered a new hard drive and installed it today in place of the old one, which after researching it seems like I will not be able to get my data from it. I put in the install disk(which was for my other computer - a 2010 or 2009 imac) to install snow leopard on it, and held down option, the cd thing came up and i selected it and was waiting for further directions when my comp started beeping 3 times and waiting a few seconds and beeping again. It kept doing this until I turned it off and when I turn it back on it does it none stop again I know this is a hefty post but I would greatly appreciate some help. a few things to clarify. I am a newbie, so sorry about that. also I didn't have a warranty to take it to apple, and even if I did it would have run out by now. My macbook pro is a 13" early 2011. it came with lion and no install disk. There are only a few things that I could think of that could be a problem based on what I read from the internet. 1. install disk is for iMac and won't work 2. install disk is too old and won't work 3. ram is broken or loose I am going to open it up when I get to my room tonight and check the RAM. I am also probably going to take it to bestbuy tomorrow (because its the closest thing here) and see if they will do anything. At this point I know it will cost me if there is a serious problem I just want it fixed as soon as possible. Thank you in advance for any responses.
