Return it to the place where you purchased it from. Ask for a replacement if your current MBP is defective. Maybe you'll get lucky with the third one.

Dear Hwookedonphonics:

I beleave you have a defective mac icon. the appropriate icon can be dowloaded off the internet (I belaeve that google has a good search function* What yo want to do is put the appropriate icon on your desktop so that when yu get your mac sad face icon, all yo have t do is double click the icon you have downloaded and presto... you have a mac smily face icon. Position this over the mac sad face icon.

I bealeave that this should take care of yor trubles. Please pardon my poor english, i am poor and receved a macbook as a donation...
QUOTE Thanks
