    Hi guys -

    I have a late 08 15in MBP that up until about 2 weeks ago ran great... THEN I started to notice a drastic change in performance.

    So...
    • I ran Onyx and it told me I had a problem with the Volume
    • Opened Disk Utility and ran Verify and Repair - both ran with some exceptions at the bottom that I didn't understand
    • I ran Tech Tool Deluxe and it told me there was a problem with Volume Structure but gave me no option to repair

    I've also been having issues with the screen freezing and pixels showing up. Is there a correlation?

    Any and ALL help is appreciated since I'm pretty clueless about these kind of things...

    Thank you!

    TechTool Pro will repair Volume Structure problems. What it's telling me when I start the process, is that you have to boot from another volume in order to repair your hard disk.

    So, I'd suggest putting in your OS CD/DVD and running Disk Utility from there. See if that gives you a repair option.

    TTP is about $60 US I think. Others swear by Disk Warrior, but I'm not sure it does what you need. It might!

    Thanks for the tip!

    Will try as soon as I have access to my OS CD/DVD...

    I lost a lot of stuff during a horribly hectic move - if I can't find my OS CD/DVD - what other options do I have?

    Contact Apple, explain your dilemma. You should be able to get a replacement disc for a pittance, assuming you can prove your ownership of the software.
