    Hello everyone, i'm new here and I hope you guys can help me with my problem.
    My laptop is MacBook Pro Model No: A1278. It was working great till I restarted it then it won't start up. I did the COMMAND + R and repaired the disk and it says everything is OK, but it still won't start up. Here's a video of what's happening.
    I have a lot of important data that I don't want 'em to be deleted. I don't have a back up too :(

    wow, never seen that before.

    seems to be the GUI is not loading (like X11 on Linux)
    disc repair didn't work you say ? what led up to the issue ? did you install something new and fancy ? you could do a re-install (not clean install) and hope that it will fix it. (hold down alt and chose the recovery partition)

    Yea disk repair didn't work. I installed Real Player then I restarted the computer then the issue came out. I cannot re-install, there's no enough space idk how I can delete items.
