Ok...I'm not real technical, some have suggested I remove my hard drive and replace it with a new one to protect my data until I get my logic board replaced. I don't have all the tools and knowledge to do this. I emailed I ResQ and asked how I can back up my files/photos when I can't get on my machine. They responded and said the following: You could try and boot it from a different machine. Try searching http://www.apple.com/support Thanks and good luck I tried to search but didn't come up with anything...does anyone know to boot it from another machine, does it have to be a MAC? How do you go about doing this? Sorry...my abilities are a bit limited as far as a MAC goes.
