I don't think so
Tried this three times,didn't work. after waiting the last time, apple logo flashes briefly to a circle with a line through it, then returns to apple logo
command C shuts computer down immediately...
tried again. didnt shut down, but didn't do anything different
When I hold the start button for 10 sec. it just shuts down. tried waiting for chime sound, then hit C-just shuts down. Tried a fifth time, waited for chime, then hit C and nothing new. Disc is original one with macbook pro. Haven't upgraded OS since.
Tried three more times, now holding down start for 10 seconds DOESN'T shut it down. Definitely pressing C button, not control.
yes. power button=start button. sorry
tried C again after 10 sec Power button. now screen has no logo for about a minute, then apple logo shows up. nothing else
Should I keep holding C until something comes up? Held it for over two minutes with nothing...
I've haven't seen any screen asking me to choose language. I tried all this before I contacted you as I saw this last answer you gave, and wondered why I never got this screen
Wait. I'm sorry, what directions to reset SMC and PRAM? The first instructions? Shift control,option, start? Tried again repeatedly....
I'm getting Chimes everytime I restart. Sometimes holding the Power button for 10 sec shuts it down, sometimes it doesn't.
Yes. Tried pram again, too. Get chime everytime. No boot to disk.
