HELP PLZ

OK, so here is the deal, i bought a last gen. macbook air 5 months ago and when i turn it on, it takes forever on the start up scream, and i mean it. It doesn't get past it.

I don't know what to do.

The last two things i've done different were using transmission for torrent, now i have changed to utorrent. And the other thing was using samsung S2 external HDD as back up, with time machine.

Since it happened the first time(2 days ago), i have already "fixed the problem" 3 times. I turn on the mac holding option, then i go to recovery disk and then i do a total back up with the time machine, what takes about 3 hours.

But it keeps happening each time i turn off and on my mac again :/

It's a 128 SSD, intel core i5, 4gb of RAM and 13 inch

G'day and welcome to the forums.

Make an appointment Monday with the Genius Bar or your APple reseller. It is still under warranty. Not running MacKeeper or downloading pirated software which sometimes can transfer trojans to your computer?

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

No avoid MacKeeper and all its associate products like the plague.

Ok, thanks.

Well, the problem happened again. I`m calling them tomorrow

Just one question. I formatted the samsung s2 external HDD as Journaled, sensitive

But on the manual it was written to do it simply as journaled. It may be the source of t problem or not??

Actually my mac did it alone, for The Time Machine.

I`ve just done a regular partition now for my stuff
