Hi, First post so be kind! I'm looking for help with a problem I'm having with a 2007 Macbook (a relic I know!) Recently I've had problems with it not opening apps, or opening them and instantly crashing. I decided to restore it to factory settings to try and fix the problem as it is old and was very full, so I wiped it and re-installed snow leopard 10.6 which I had on disk as I bought it to update last year. The install failed twice but on the 3rd attempt it installed fine, but when I went through the set up screens (choose a language, set up an admin account etc.) it kept crashing, sometimes on the first screen, sometimes further in the process. Most times it got through to the create an admin account section but then wouldn't go past that screen. Each time I set up an account, it wouldn't let me use the account names I had previously tried which made me think it was probably creating the account but for some reason wouldn't let me past that screen. Eventually it occurred to me to start it up in safe mode. It let me set up straight away with no problems, and was working fine in safe mode, and there were 7 or 8 admin accounts on there from my previous attempts at setup. However when I booted it up normally, I found that I was unable to do anything, no apps would open, the icons didn't even bounce, just nothing. Then I restarted in safe mode and verified and repaired permissions, the log didn't show any problem areas or anything, and when I restarted I thought it might have worked as I was able to open and use safari. However my excitement was short-lived as I realised I was only able to use it for about a minute before it seized up and I got the spinning wheel of death and was unable to do anything, even shut the machine down. I have restarted several times now and it's always the same regardless of which app I open, usable briefly but soon jams up. Anyone any ideas?? Any advice would be much appreciated, I am not the most tech savvy person so any help would be gratefully received. Thanks in advance!
