    Hi,

    My Macbook Pro has been freezing and running poorly for a few weeks now, so I ran Disk Utility today and a screen came up to say the disk needs to be repaired. I then reset the computer, holding down command D, etc. However, when I ran Disk Utility it said that the disk was fine and couldn't get to the repair stage.

    I've attached a photo of the original disk utility screen. Any help?

    I have also tried to run the Mac repair thing resetting and holding down D, but it couldn't find the problem.

    Any help would be great.

    I'm confused. As far as I am aware CMD + D doesn't do anything on boot.
    Have you actually tried what Disk Utility tells you to do? Hold down CMD + R and then repair through Disk Utility there.

    It looks like you have FileVault encryption turned on, and typically disk issues like that cannot be repaired with FV on.

    I would backup first, then turn off FileVault and wait for it to unencrypt. Then reboot and hold command-r to get to recovery and try running Disk Utility from there to repair the disk.

    It could be that you have a failing drive.

    Hey - my mistake. I did the whole Command R thing. Not Command D. D was when I did just D to get to the Apple Hardware Test.

    I will try turning off Filevault and see how I go.

    Thanks!
