    Mid 2010 mac book starting issue
    Hello, new to the forum and at a loss as to what to do other than take it to apple and pay....

    Basically when my MacBook starts, it loads up fine for less than a minute to the home screen then the home screen/desktop refreshes endlessly so I can't actually do anything at all. It start in safe mode okay. I've verified disk permissions but there are always permissions that need to be repaired and they always come back, and on one occasion the disk had to be repaired after I verified disk. Though it is fine since. I have reinstalled osx using shift +R and it is no better.

    Thanks in advance,

    FIrst, reset the pram/smc About NVRAM and PRAM

    Second, run the Apple Hardware Test (hold on startup) and see if that reports issues.
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .

    Hi thanks for your advice, I did both of those things and the test results were no trouble found...

    Still at a loss...

    I must have changed something on safe mode that ie I've passworded my user account, so when it starts up and refreshes it goes straight back to logon screen
