    Problems with fresh reinstall
    Hi all

    I currently own a 13" macbook unibody (the one from 2008) I have reinstalled my laptop half a dozen times with no problems in the past but after a recent fresh install its playing up. It works ok for around 30mins then the beach ball comes up and the laptop completely freezes for a few minutes then starts to work again. This lag happens all days long, Ive tried only running certain programs to see if I can isolate the problem but it appears to freeze and unfreeze whatever. Ive repaired disk permissions and all that stuff. When I do a fresh reinstall I always completely wipe the OSX and zero the data. I expect the best thing to do is to reinstall the operating system again and see if it persists but I have installed loads of software, music, files etc and I cant be bothered to do it unless I really need to. Any ideas ?????????

    Down Under :D
    Back to my old 2.2GHz C2D MB after selling my MBP and wondering what my next Mac will be :)
    A while back you were having performance problems and you were going to upgrade your RAM.
    So, is this since a RAM upgrade, and if so, was there any improvement?

    Even then, I'm suspecting a dying HD.

    Still have the stock 160GB drive in there? If not what size drive? And how much free space do you have left?
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
