    I dropped my macbook (heart wrenching..i know) It was giving me trouble restarting it. Now it starts up and when it does it makes this really loud noise. my guess is the cd drive? every application is opening as slow as it can. nothing is working. its shut down on me a few times. i know i need to take it in..but in the mean time is there anything i can do? i need help asap. thank you

    ok as of now, it takes too long to open any application. it freezes completely.

    If you bought it with-in 2 weeks, return it for a new one.

    If not,

    Apple Care FTW!

    Sorry to hear bud.

    I hope the Macbook does not have any marks or dents incurred from the dropping. I say this because Apple may not refund/fix it if they think its accidental damage.

    In the meantime, open the battery latch and make sure the harddrive is sitting properly and the RAM. Disconnect them and connect them again.

    Hope it all works out for you though.

    I watched as customers laughed at a lady trying to return an iPod she sat on saying it came that way.
