    I was installing some updates into my computer when it crashed. I then tried to start it up again, i hear the start up sound but then all i see is a blank screen with the apple logo, it just stays that was and never loads up.

    I have run it with the start up disk and managed to get into the computer to run a utilities check, to which it said 'repair and verified failed'

    i am really worried i will lose all the photos on my computer as they are not backed up and are very very important to me. what do you suggest for me. i could really really do with some advice...
    cheers

    open it
    remove HD
    attach to external enclosure
    copy **** you want to keep
    install new HD or replace old one
    reinstall

    or just check the HD cable hasn't come loose from the motherboard....
