    Need a bit of hard drive help?
    Lately over the passed 3-4 months when booting into OSX i'll notice my wireless, Sound and Bluetooth are turned off. Clicking on the icons at the top it it looks as though it's not installed and can't find the hardware.

    I would unplug my laptop and take out the battery hold down the power for 30 seconds and that would usually fix it.

    I ran a hard drive verification in Disk utility and found a lot of errors

    This repair would fix work and the problem seemed to go away for a few weeks lately though it's been starting up again i would go through and repair it fixing the problem but i seem to have to do it weekly?

    would you think it's safe to say I need a new hard drive?

    If you are running the hard drive verification (not permission repair) and are finding errors that often I'd be a little concerned. Others may disagree but I'd be looking for a new drive. Do you have a good backup?

    +1. Agree with member Slydude. It's probably time to replace the hard drive. Make a backup as soon as you can.

    as a side question would you guys think it would be worth going to a SSD such as the OCZ Vertex?

    Canada Computers | Solid State Drives | OCZ (OCZSSD2-1VTXPL240G) Vertex Plus SATA II 2.5" 240GB Solid State Drive, Read: 255MB/s , Write: 255MB/s

    I know the macbook is sata 2 but could i put a SATA 3 drive in it since there are more options?
