    Dear All,

    I have a Macbook Pro 5,5, 13 inch.

    I had a kernel panic a while ago and now my mac won't turn on, It will just get stuck at the grey screen where I get a multi-language message telling me to hold down the power button till it turns off in order to reboot the device.

    Anyways, I have googled the problem and I tried everything but it still won't work and it just will be stuck at the same grey screen.

    So I am now convinced that this is a HD problem and my HD might be dead. So now I am considering buying a new HD, I hope you can help me chose the best HD in terms of speed and storage. So could you please help me by suggesting the best HD I can get that is suitable for my device ?

    At last, My OS is Snow Leopard, I still have the DVDs but my optical drive seems to be broken, it keeps ejecting the DVDs + it makes some noise whenever I try to turn on my device. I am not sure if it's broken or not but I would prefer to find a way to reinstall my OS without using the DVD that came with the Notebook. Honestly I never use my optical drive and I am not willing to replace it because that is just too much for me right now since I am going to replace the internal HD.

    Your help is very appreciated.

    Thank You :)
