    hi all, i have a problem and that is that whenever i need to force reboot my macbook after a crash, it is extremely slow after the reboot. It usually takes around 30 seconds to start but when i force reboot it, it takes around a whole minute to do anything. Also, once it does start up, it is very unresponsive and i cant seem to even type out a sentence without it hanging for a minute. I figure this is a HDD problem as nothing else would cause it to hang that i know of. btw i must force shut down because i have this old game some of you may know called "halo" that likes to crash alot. Once it does i cant com+Q or anything and the computer freezes up. any help appreciated!!

    Maybe Memory!

    Maybe you've reached the memory capacity on your HD. Try cleaning the HD out with unwanted files/folders etc. That might help.

    thanks. not sure what is causing still but i have 100gigs left on a 320gig platter.

    ill have to eventually do a full restore to return this machine to its glory!

    with lion the problem only gets worse as this supposedly state of the art core2duo hangs at every opportunity
