08-14-2011, 10:23 AM #1HELP! Deleted fonts now OS X wont boot up
Im sorry if this may be a duplicate question but Im not sure if it was answered.
I have a 13 inch Macbook 2008 running Snow Leopard 10.6.7
So I received a folder full of fonts so I added them to my existing fonts and that was ok. When I went into Photoshop, I tried to use one of the new fonts I added but it wasnt available to select. The reason was because those fonts were listed alphabetically and the font list only shows so many.
To make a long story short.....
I accidentally deleted ALL of my fonts and now the system freezes on my desktop. The icons that were there has disappeared and I cannot do anything. The only thing that appears is my wallpaper, battery life, the time and everything in the top right corner of the desktop but it does not allow me to click or right click.
I put in my Snow Leopard install disc but it freezes from booting as well.
Is there something I can do to resolve this?

Yes. I got the Snow Leopard when I purchased the notebook. I've been surfing around for other solutions and one of them was to see if I can put back the fonts by connecting a firewire from my notebook to another. I will see how that goes and report back.

I learned that if you can get to an APPLE store and make an appointment at the "Genius Bar", they will fix any problem with your Apple computer, laptop, iPod, iPad or iPhone for FREE unless they have to open it up or replace any components.
Even WITHOUT Apple Care they will support any diagnostic issue with your system. I think this is a huge plus with Apple especially since any PC repair shop charges you a fee before they even diagnose what your problems are.
