    Hello everybody,

    I´am new in the community becaus i have some trouble with my macbook :(
    It was running all the years without any problems. But now it´s getting older and the problems are staring.

    Becaus i don´t feel 100% save with my written english i thought i make a video which shows the problems i have :) to speak english it's easier for me.

    I hope that you will be able to help me with that ;)

    that is really sad :( i don't know if this helps but try to press option/alt-cmd-D all at the same time and see if your dock pops up. for the mouse try to activate the mouse click for the trackpad int the preferences if you can get there under system preferences->trackpad->the firs thing where you can confirm something (my mac is set to german so i cant explain it right, sorry)

    The bar at the bottom is called the DOCK and can be set to automatically hide via System Preferences (Systemeinstellungen) > Dock >> Automatically hide and show the Dock, or via pressing CMD+OPTION/ALT+D.
    If that does not work, look into Activity Monitor (Aktivitätsanzeige) and look if there is even a process named "Dock" running.

    Now to the mouse. Have you tried another mouse yet or tried the mouse with another Mac or computer (Windows, Linux) or another USB port on the MB?

    Does the ENTER key feel, like there is something preventing it to be completely pressed down? (Maybe the left mouse button has some dirt underneath, which also prevents it from being clickable.)
    Have you taken a look at System Preferences > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts > Full keyboard Access (on the bottom): ALL CONTROLS?

    As to not being able to reinstall Mac OS X: Have you tried booting the MB while the DVD is inside and pressing and holding down the Option/Alt or C key immediately after the startup sound chimes?

    i would also say just boot your mac with the dvd inside it. by the way i don't think it will delete you files, if i'm not mistaking.

    Try this:

    1. Boot with NO cd and holding down the Option Key. You Should get a screen that just shows your MacBooks Hard drive.
    2.Put in the CD and it should show it as an option next to your Hard Disk after about 20 seconds.
    3. Click on the CD and you should be given the Snow Leopard Install.

    You should be able to get through with mouse clicks.

    Also in case it hasn't been mentioned try holding Command+Option+P+R when you boot that resets the EFI. it may not help but its worth a shot.

    Is the only remaining problem your Enter key and the touchpad button? They might just need to be replaced finally.
