What To Do When Your Macbook Pro Fails


I have a Macbook Pro laptop computer which is not working as I had wanted it to. The real problem is just that I can’t use this machine for anything. I have tried using a wireless mouse, I have also used a corded mouse to see if that was the problem, but nothing is happening. I am starting to worry that there may have been some kind of error in the installation, so that it will now not recognise any of the drives and data that is on the laptop. If that was the case, then I have probably lost everything, I imagine. I have also tried to troubleshoot the fault in the FN and F8 system. This has not done anything. Can the data be recovered?


I am using a Macbook Pro MB991LL laptop computer which is not working as I had thought it would. Rather than being able to do things quickly, I am finding that it is lagging to a degree which is making it impossible to work with. Often, it takes more than 40 minutes to boot up into the OS, and it will be very tardy while I am doing anything on the OS after it has finished booting. Sometimes, it will take more than 30 seconds to respond to a click, or to me moving the mouse from one area to another. This means that doing anything takes me an ice age to complete. If I want to type a document, well that could take hours, because each key is so slow to respond. I thought it might be the hard drive, so did a clean of the system which took 2 days and they not finish running. I restarted the Macbook and now the laptop will not get past the question mark symbol.
