    My sister recently downloaded the automatic firmware up date through Apples software update. I guess she did not read the install overview, because when she got back to her computer and turned it on it stated doing the update - showing the progress bar under the Apple.

    She didn't know what was going on and hard shutdown here computer. Now her computer will not boot up.

    Any suggestions before I make the trip up to help her.

    Apple has posted a Firmware Restoration dmg that will fix that problem. The file must be downloaded on a WORKING Mac and then burned to CD which can then be used to fix the problem.

    Find it here:

    the MacBook is quickly becoming the new mac user computer... just as the iBook was.
