    My hard drive went on my macbook. I had a disc in the drive. Now it will not let me get the disc out. How do I do this or am I screwed?

    When you start up the computer, hold down the button on your trackpad, that should force the mechanism to eject the disc. Beyond that, a trip to the Apple Store would be warrented, as the disc may be slightly warped and unable to make it out of the slot, without some manual tweaking.

    I had the same problem with my iMac, I had to take it to the apple store where they removed the superdrive and forced the disc out. Turned out to be a faulty logicboard.
    Hope yours is still under warranty, could be expensive :eek:

    I have a feeling that it is a faulty logic board. The screen broke on it back in october. It still worked but soon the HD went. I really think it is the logic board. I might just stick it back in the closet and forget about it. Damn I really miss that computer. Maybe I should have bought another one instead of an Imac.
