Recently, my macbook crashed a lot of times. When restarting, I always see that dreaded white screen with horizontal lines. The first time I was able to successfully start it, I encountered a lot of problems such as a message ‘problem in display’ (forgot exact message), finder hangs, system preference hangs and as a result I cannot shut down. After encountering those problems, it crashed and I have to bring it back to life. Sometimes I was successful in booting in on safe mode, other times not. Finally yesterday, I was able to successfully bring it back to life and it ran for around 8 hours until i realized there was a problem with the sound but using PRAM keys, sounds were back. and still no crashing. But I have noticed that the login process is a bit different. My login before the crash is like this: apple logo with progress bar (which is kinda slow) then the login avatar. But since the dreaded white screen with horizontal lines its like this: login >> login avatar with progress bar >> when progress bar is about 25% it will suddenly go to white screen with nothing for about a second >> light grey screen with apple logo and progress bar goes fast >> then desktop display. My question: is this normal way of logging in? Because if its not perhaps there are more mac crashes that will come my way. 🙁
