MBP not booting or very slow and loud fans issue.

    My MBP either doesn't load at boot or takes a long time. I get a black screen and the fans are very load. It's an MBP 15" mid 2010, Intel i7 with 8gb ram, and 500gb HDD.
    My HDD is nearly full, I have bought a new SSD which I will be installing soon. Will this make a difference?
    When it is on its a bit slow in starting up programs/software. Is it because I have to many browsing windows open and other programs running at the same time I wonder?
    I would like to upgrade my MBP but can't afford it at the moment hence the new SSD and ram upgrade to 8gb. I would like to increase ram to 16gb but this model only allows up to 8gb. I have read on forums that users have managed to cheat the system and install 16gb even though the system only says 8gb. Is this possible?
    Sorry for the long message in advance.
    I have received a few error reports, which I can't understand and was hoping maybe someone would be able to translate the following for me in layman's terms:

    The SSD you're fitting will make a world of difference. The bottleneck will always be the HDD, and when the I/O gets clogged with loading multiple things at the same time it just completely cripples the computer's performance.

    If you haven't changed the HDD since 2010, then it's likely from wear-and-tear the HDD's already in the stages of failure, or at least the platters/spinners have worn to the point where performance has suffered, further compounding the issues you're having. You can quickly verify the HDD's SMART data through SMART Utility, and if that comes back clean, try a quick volume verification through Disk Utility. However as you're installing an SSD anyway you needn't worry if the hard-drive's on its way out.

    The only alternative causing a kernel panic is possibly the RAM but if the HDD or volume is corrupted then that's your answer.

    You can't cheat it to get 16GB RAM unfortunately, but SSD would compensate for this anyway.

    As you're currently on Yosemite you'll get a little more performance if you upgrade to El Capitan too - but if HDD's corrupted, best to install fresh copy of El Cap on the SSD so you're not cloning any bad sectors or anything like that.

    Speak soon. :)

    Thanks for the advice, Should I do a clean install?
    If so I am running Yosemite at the moment and wont upgrade to EL Capitan for a while as there are issues running the Adobe CC suite with it.
    How would I go about doing the clean install?
    My original plan was to de-clutter and clean out and trash old files and save all photos and videos to external drive.
    I would Install the SSD by using an external HDD enclosure, so a straight copy onto the Samsung evo 850 pro 500gb SSD from the HDD, wiping the HDD using it as an external HDD and then installing the SSD once all files are copied over.
    Is a clean install better or will I just do it as mentioned. How do you do a clean install from Yosemite?

    Many thanks

    I'd just say a clean install of Yosemite Jenko, if you're installing a new drive it'll be best to start fresh to avoid any headaches down the line. :)

    Plug in SSD via USB enclosure, hold CMD+R on startup to boot into OS X Utilities, format SSD in Disk Utility, then select 'Install OS X' and install it to the external drive.

    Great so does that mean it will automatically re install yosemite and the old HDD at the same time. When you say external drive does that mean the SSD in the USB enclosure?
  6. keysofanxiety macrumors G3


    Nov 23, 2011
    Yeah that's right, external drive is the SSD in USB enclosure. Your HDD will be untouched during this process so you'll still have all your stuff there as you'll only be formatting/installing an OS to the SSD. That way you can retrieve any data from the HDD at a later time using the same enclosure.

    Hope this helps. :)
