    I have the Macbook Pro.

    I have been having issues with this laptop for quite some time. At first, I kept getting that Blue screen of death (so they call it). So i decided to put in my Install CD and reboot my computer....

    Then my keyboard stopped working.... then it decided to work...

    Now I am stuck at the log in screen. I cannot seem to log into my account. I type in my password, then it signs in for two seconds and goes back to log in...

    I have tried almost everything (nearly everything)... like the safe boot, the command+v, and tried doing the PRAM.... but could not hear the second chime...

    I really am wondering if I should buy a new laptop.... and put this "broken" one in that T MODE... would I be able to grab everything then???

    I did not use time machine (which I regret)..... I have about 215 G worth of crap I want...

    Thanks Much

    Sounds like you're incurring some sort of hardware failure and your only option is to hook up your internal hard drive to another computer in the hopes that you can retrieve your data.

    You already mentioned you failed to have a Time Machine backup, perhaps this can be a learning experience and in the future you'll maintain backups.

    Sorry to hear about your mac's problems though :(

    The next step is probably take it to an apple store for them to look at it and help discern what your options are.

    does your hdd make any weird noises? have you tried adjusting your ram? remove them and put it back in.

    what was the last thing you installed before having the issues?
