Ok, so I have a White Macbook 2ghz Core 2 Duo. --- You may recall my posting a few days back about wanting to upgrade the hard drive and RAM. So Last night, as I do every night I put the computer to sleep, very rarely do I shut it down. Open it up this morning, and it's taking forever for Safari and Mail to open, then I get the beachball spinning, and I hear some clicking noises going on inside. So I do a hard restart and all I get is the grey screen, not even an apple logo to come up. so i start thinking "oh crap". Luckily was able to get over to an apple store during my lunch break, hard drive died. lost a paper that was due today for class. fortunately i was still under warranty, so they were able to do a replacement of the drive in store and get her up and running again. I should mention that I do have an external drive, that I keep all my 50gb worth of iTunes stuff and iPhoto library in so thank god those are all backed up. But the one time I don't back up a paper, the drive fails Regardless, still a scary day. First time in my 4 years of owning a mac that my hard drive has fried. Actually, first time i think using any type of computer. Just glad she's up and running again, and now i have 5 days to write this paper again! I guess I should start shutting down my machine completely at night now?
