Hello people, My mother's laptop (an old macbook pro) graphic card died yesterday. Upon launching it would make the startup "humm" sound, but the screen would remain a solid gray. Since the repair was estimated to be much higher than the machine was worth, we went out to buy a new MacBook Pro 13"". Although she now has a machine for her work and personal needs, she still has all those photos and other data left on her old Macbook. We went through the Migration-thing that launches when a new Apple computer first started. We connected the two Macs with a Firewire cable, and then restarted the defect computer while holding the T-button. Much to our surprise, it actually showed the firewire-logo on the defect notebook. The new Macbook pro told us a Firewire connection had been made. But then, when we clicked on "next step", the spinning wheel came up and we're still at that now. Both computers are now completely unresponsive to any input. Since one of our computers is defect, we're starting to wonder if it's even possible this way - are there steps being presented on the defect computer that we cannot see? Is the new Macbook Pro being sluggish? Does someone has an idea as to what could be going wrong here? We would like to be able to solve this on our own, but I guess if we can't we'll have to bring the defect computer to an expert to retrieve the data. Many thanks in advance!
