    Hello people! I was sitting on the internet, when my macbook just shut off. Now when I try and start it up, it just goes on the startup screen for 15 seconds and then shuts off! I have tried like 20 times, literally, and it still won't work! Please help, thanks! :eek::eek:

    Pop in the OS disc and complete a repair permissions and repair disk and hopefully it will work

    Ok I looked EVERYWHERE and I cannot find the disk! And I am kind of new at this so what disk are you talking about more specifically?

    It says restore disc on it I believe and if you are running Leopard, it should be kinda purpleish

    Guess what! It just started working again! Well, all I needed to do was plug in the laptop, but for some reason it went "out of battery power" at 70 percent. Well, I guess I just solved my own problem, but now I have another problem. Why did it run out of battery power at 70%? :rolleyes:

    What Mac do you have? You can check for firmware updates for your Mac and battery
