First time poster! But I really needed to hear some opinions from other Mac users before I did anything. I've owned my Macbook White (the 13" one) since June 2007. And I love it dearly! Its my first laptop so I really considered it as my baby. But anyway. Now, last January 2009 (warranty over, I did not get Apple Care because my pocket savings weren't enough by June 2008) something started to go wrong. Well, an application started to go wrong. Ta-da: it was Quicktime! Just the mere presence of a vid icon that should be run by Quicktime made the spinning wheel come out for an hour or so. Ugh, I tore my hair trying to fix it. I Googled the problem and found that other users had experienced it also, and that there were fixes. So I tried to fix it (reinstall Quicktime, download .pkg fixes, etc). BUT NOTHING WORKED. So I did the only thing I thought should be done: clean the hard-drive and do a reformat. And guess what, it worked! Everything was running smoothly again. Well, for half a month, at least. As my friend used iTunes, my Macbook crashed. Upon rebooting, I saw the question mark folder and the no entry sign. Kernel Panic, anyone? I reformatted again and again (yes, I reformatted twice because the first one was slow, everything kept on hanging, and etc). Upon the second reformat things started to work again, quite permanently (or so I thought). Then I had my RAM upgraded at iStudio Greenhills (its where I bought my unit). Things started to go haywire again after that: the the fan started to sound like a chainsaw, HD made ticking sounds on occasion, and everything just kept on HANGING and the rainbow spinning wheel grated on my nerves. Under the rec of iStudio, I brought my unit to Senco Link Tech at Makati and had a diagnostic test run on my Macbook. I kind of rushed them because my mother rushed me, but hey the laptop was them for three and a half working days, so... They originally thought it was the fan or HD, but after replacing both the constant hanging was still ever constant, so now they say the Logic Board is dying. I don't know if I should believe them or not, but ugh. I think you guys know how much a Macbook Logic Board costs, and I'd rather buy a new laptop then buy a new Logic Board. I can't believe all of this started with QUICKTIME. I'm so frustrated. Anyway, sorry for the long story. But has this happened to anyone? Or... any thoughts on this? I know Apple is great but crap they do screw up sometimes. In my opinion, 1 year and a half is way too young for a Logic Board to die.
