    Took a video to let you see what happens



    I have been having issues with the machine freezing a lot recently, it randonmly happens for no reason. I have done some research about about this and think I narrowed it down to a broken HDD. After running a S.M.A.R.T test it shows 5 broken sectors.

    Anyway I booted the machine today as soon as the desktop popped up the machine froze and I had to hard reset. After doing that I am now left with problem above.

    Any ideas?

    could be bad RAM, bad hard drive or logic board

    Interesting S.O.S beep sequence. I'd get to an Apple authorized repair shop printo.

    Fixed by using the Firmware Restore CD. Checking the ram now using Rember. Hopefully the memory will be fine and its the HDD. Awaiting a new SSD arriving this week that should fix it!

    Just an update on this....

    I have now got the machine back up and running with the new Crucial M4 SSD and all seems so far (touch wood). The machine is a hell of a lot quicker too on boot up and installing software etc.

    I have since ran Tech Tools and checked the entire system, so looks like it was the HDD after all.

    brings back bad memories

    probably your logic is dying.

    this is why u should always get apple care. if not i hope u have 750 $ to spare.

    good luck
