I purchased my MacBook this past July and it worked great for 2 months then went to ****. Programs started locking up and wouldn't even force quit. When I took it to Apple to have someone look at it they just told me it looks like I need to reinstall the OS. My computer was still operational up until I took it in and now after the visit to Apple, it gets stuck on the Screen w/ the Apple and Spin wheel at the bottom. I have too much stuff on this computer to lose and don't want to have to reset everything. I also ran the hardware test and came back w/ the code....

4HDD/11/40000004:SATA(0,0)

I would love to know what the code means. Any help would greatly be appreciated.
