    well I use alot of multimedia programs, but none the less my year and a half old macbook pro now has crashed 4 times in the last couple weeks. the first few times if I waited a few minutes, it would boot up fine. Yesterday I just completely wyped my hard drive and installed Leopard and other programs, just today it crashed and will not boot up even after waiting.???

    I think its the hard drive and I just need a new one and a new install, but does anybody else know about this? I answer messages quickly, please help, thanks in advanced, :),

    Well I pressed the option Key as I booted up, and got my computer going again, with leopard and all my recently new programs a friend threw on there for me. but I wouldn't bet a dollar that it won't crash again anytime soon, good thing i gotta external hard drive that I can back everything up, :)

    do you have the latest firmware? or have you updated your firmware recently?

    i think you hard drive is fine, however the thing recognising it does not work all the time.
