I desperately need help!
 
So I powered up my macbook pro today and my finder won't open up.


When i turn it on it's just a blue screen.

The only way I was able to get on Firefox was through 'Recent Items' via the apple icon.

I have a strong suspicion it has to do with my hard drive being full.

It also won't help me copy and paste or take screen shot to show you guys.

please help me!!!!

Your hard drive is full? As in COMPLETELY full with no free space? Ah…. yeah! That will cause problems because you have zero space for the cache. You need to free up some space. Try booting in Safe Mode to hopefully get a more usable system while you move some files to an external drive, or delete them. General rule of thumb is to have no less that 15% of free drive space available.
