    Macbook shutdowns after the gray screen with the apple logo
    Hi, I'm having a problem with my macbook. I start it up and it makes it to the gray apple screen but then it shutdowns. I booted in verbose mode and the last text that appear before shutting down was:

    hfs: danger! couldn't find the file-id's for the journal or journal_info_block
    hfs: jnlfileid 0, jnlinfoblkid 17
    Bluetooth::CSRHIDTransition switchToHCIMode (legacy)
    Bluetooth::CSRHIDTransition transition complete.
    syncing disks... Killing all processes

    CPU halted
    HCIControllerconfigurePM power parent ready after 1 tries

    Any ideas of what might be wrong. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    I did that but it didn't let me repair it, this is the text that appear:

    Verifying volume "HITACHI HD"
    Checking Journaled HFS Plus Volume.
    Checking Extents Overflow file.
    Checking Catalog file.
    Invalid file or directory ID found
    Volume check failed.
    Error: Filesystem verify or repair failed.

    Sounds like a Hard drive or SATA controller issue.... better bring it to Apple.
