    Hello all,
    Recently, I turned on my MBP and had to do a hard shutdown (hold power button down) after 2 minutes of the white screen with the apple logo and spinning cog in the center. When I pressed button again, it started up normally. This is actually the second time its happened in about a week or two. I don't know if this makes a difference, but I have a USB keyboard and mouse connected to it on boot up. Should I be concerned? New to Macs, is there any way of checking to see if the hard disk or OS (mountain lion upgrade) is ok other than "verify disk" in Disk utility?

    You could run AHT:

    Try resetting the SMC and PRAM. Google how to do it.

    How old is the computer?
