    Hi guys. I bought a macbook pro 15 inch about 3 months ago and i didnt buy apple care because... well.. i dont know why i didnt :/


    anyway i got really mad doing work and i smacked the computer where the harddrive is and i think i broke it. the computer starts and shows the apple logo (without the loading thing) and it stays like that for a minute and shows the terminal full screened with the "You need to restart your computer...." message

    and above that it says this;
    panic(cpu 0 caller 0xffffff8000648e1b): "Unable to find driver for this platform": \"ACPI"\",\n"@/SourceCache/xnu/xnu-1699.24.8/iokit/kernal/IOPlatformExpert/cpp:1504
    Debugger called: <panic>

    Yep, Sounds like your hard drive is shot. If you're gonna abuse your computers, you should get a SSD.

    Yes. A Mac is covered for twelve months after the first purchase.

    It depends. Did you try any of the steps I linked to?

    I guess it depends on whether or not they can tell you slam your fist on the harddrive. :)

    I would recommend he doesn't mention any of that to Apple.

    And please don't take your anger out on your expensive electronics.

    Exactly - You make the decision - either buy a new drive or seek to have it replaced.

    Dude, in my city if you start a hassle or show light dissappointment in the apple store, the genius bar ppl simply ask you to be quiet and give you a brand new replacement
    LoL
