Hello guys and gals About a week ago my MacBook pro froze so i had powered it off and my hard drive crashed. So i bought a new hard drive and installed it and disk utility found it and i got it to partition and i installed the OS. Then once i got it back up and running it started running slow and i was getting the spinning beach ball so i powered it off and now im getting the flashing folder again. So i put my snow leopard cd i'n again and now I'm trying to partition it again but it freezes when i click on partition tab. Does anyone know what's going with my MBP? I'm a college student who needs his computer to be reliable and this is really frustrating. No i don't have AppleCare.
