    Ok some my macbook(blackbook 2.4ghz, new ones) was working properly the other day. I think my brother must of gotten in and started watch porn:cool:
    and i turned it off then the next day at school i turned on my macbook and when i wanted to log in it told me "there was in error logging in please try later" not only that but i put that FileVault setting on to protect my computer and i dont know if that is what is affecting my computer. I did set up a master password but still it wont let my log in and tells me that "there was error". Help what should i do, i just got this and i also have applecare so will this be covered by applecare?

    So do they have punctuation in Orange County?
    What kind of error login are you getting? Is it a regular dialog box (like during shutdown) or is it something odd like a kernel panic (screen goes grey and different languages appear). No way that watching porn would screw the computer up, not on a Mac at least.
    Maybe just boot from your System DVD's and do a repair of permissions and repair the disk.

    Ok im using another computer right now and this exactly what my screen says when i try to log.
    "You are unable to log in to the FileVault user account "tongonzalez" at this time.
    Logging in to the account failed because an error occurred."
    -Thanks for the help

    Ok, do you have different passwords for Filevault, your standard login, and your master password?

    If you do, then try using the filevault password to login. If that doesn't work, boot off of the install DVD. (by holding down the "C" key while booting with the disc in the drive. Then on the top, under Utilities, should be "Password Reset". Try this, and also under Utilities, try Disk Utility and "Repair Permissions." This is a one stop cure all. If it doesn't work let us know what happened.
