    As the thread suggest

    whenever i start up my macbook it stays at the white screen .. after a while it turns black with that on top .. no bootable device -- insert boot disc and press any keys ..:confused:

    What's up with that ?:mad:

    so am i suppose to live with this and having to press alt when i start up or is there a way to fix this?
    Please help .. its irritating

    Also i have one single stuck pixel.. cant seem to fix it by rubbing , tapping or playing video with flash of RGB.. i also know i cant change my screen just because of 1 pixel but heh come on .. my sis paid 1.2k for her asus and i paid 2k for mine.. with are of equivalent hardware .. 2gb ram 160gb hdd damn damn damn damn damn damn!:cool:

    HELPPPPPP~

    Try resetting your PRAM by holding cmd+opt+p+r on boot. This reset the default boot location and might do the trick.


    Regarding the stuck pixel I have seen some people say that this sort of thing works for it. In Widget form http://www.apple.com/downloads/dashboard/status/pixelfix.html

    If it doesn't work maybe phone apple and see what they say.

    you need to select the boot device, do this by going into System Prefs>Startup disk and select the boot drive that you want to always boot.

    as for the pixel, you cant really do anything, might have to put up with it...try rubbing it harder, give it more love :p
