What To Do When Your Macbook Pro Fails

MACBOOK PRO LAPTOP

I have a Macbook Pro laptop with a 17″ display screen. I have been using it for some time without problem, but recently I wanted open some files, and the computer suddenly told me that I was not the administrator and thus could not open the files. In order to become the administrator for the laptop, when I am the only user, I would have to unlock that feature. I need to submit a password to do so. I don’t remember all this locking of systems, and I have not been asked to submit a password for any system. The Mac seems to think that there is a second user somewhere in the hard drive, who is the administrator, otherwise why would they stop me from being so? As I cannot open the files I need them extracted from the Mac system.

MACBOOK PRO LAPTOP

I have a larger Macbook Pro from Apple, and I have been using it for a couple of years. Recently, I decided that the time had come to upgrade my operating system, and to ensure that I could get as much as possible out of my Mac use. I therefore upgraded the system from OS 10.8, to OS 10.8.5. I have upgraded systems before, and thought it would be relatively simple and easy to do. On the contrary, I have had a ton of problems, all of them revolving around the fact that the computer thinks that the update is not valid. It says ‘computer already up to date’, and then just stops loading the installation. I have lost some software because the machine is hanging between the 10.8.5 installation and the underlying 10.8 which was in place before. I don’t want to lose any more saved files with this installation, but at the same time, I can’t stop the laptop from booting into the install program every time I turn it on.
