    Macbook Pro freezes at Apple Icon while startup

    I have a Macbook Pro which is running on OS X Lion, the problem on my machine is that am not getting the home screen even after many restarts. Whenever I turn it on, it starts normally and freezes at Apple Icon, and never returns the home screen. What can be done as a fix for this?

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say...............................

    1.This can be the problem of the OS or the hardware.

    2.So firstly try to start your Mac.

    3.And then insert the CD of the Mac OS and then restart it.

    4.While starting you try to install that OS.

    5.If that is not your problem then it is your Hard Disk problem.

    6.Your Hard disk may be damaged so your OS files are unable to read.

    7.So to fix this problem you have to replace the hard disk with new one.

    All the best............................

    Dear user



    There are two causes for freezing ---low memory
    ---invalid or unsupported os

    try to add some more memory if memory is less else upgrade or change your os. this will fix your problem.
    Keep your applications up to date for less error

    You should monitor your Mac hard drive health by Drive Monitor Utility of Stellar Drive ToolBox 3.0 v, there might be some damage or bad sectors in hard drive. As a result of hard disk error, your Mac book freezes.

    You may be using the old version of operating system.
    Re-install the correct operating system build by using Mac OS X Install DVDs included with the computer.
    You can also install a later version of operating system.
    But never install a version of the operating system released before the release of your computer.
    Re-installation of operating system will correct your problem.

    Dear friend, here are the solution for your problem. You should only need to follow the advice. # in my opinion this is the problem with your os or hardware. # now start your'' mac ''. # insert the cd of the mac os and tap on the restart button. # while it starts to restart try to install os from the cd. # if again this problem occurs then it is something related to ''the hard disk''. # in that case your hard disk get damaged so that the "" os"" files are unable to read. # so , at last replace the hard disk. Surely your problem will be solved. That;s all i have regarding your query, hope this information will help you a lot.

    Hi Dear,

    The problem here may be due to OS corrupted.

    So insert the OS CD/DVD and restart the device.

    Now Setup the installation of OS.

    After successful installation of OS, restart the device.

    Now open your Desktop normally without any issues.

    Use good quality antivirus from viral attack to your device.


    Thank You.
