When you installed the 640 GB HD where was it before. Was it new and did you install the system with it inside the MacBook Pro 15'. If it was not new what machine did you take it out of?

von

It was brand new from Ifixit

So what fixed it?

von

Nor safe mode or Pram worked. IFIXIT will change it. Thanks

A couple of things can be dome. First I would defragment and optimize the hard drive using TechTools, then I would partition the disk into at least two partitions to reduce search time. Keep The system and applications one the first drive and data like movies on the second.

Thanks Mayer for your anser. I tried it in a MacBook 13" (2.4 GHZ) and work well? it was fast and did not present beachball??

The problems seems to be in mine 15"? in others two MacBook 13" work well? they all are same old

What's the system and RAM differences in the machines?

von

Snow leopard and 4GB all of them.

I really don't know. Do a force quit on the 15" and see if something is running in the background. Check to see if it's seeing all the RAM in "about this Mac".

Is your old drive still working well in your MBP ? If not the hard drive SATA cable could be faulty.

Yes the old one is working just fine, I wanted to upgrade because of the capacity.

If you are installing a new drive and it does not want to come up after you install the system software, Try restarting the computer and hold down the shift key until it comes all the way up. Log in and see what happens. Sometimes on new installs the system is confused and needs to boot in safe mode to figure out what it is doing.

If this works and the desktop comes up all the way including your menu at top just go under the apple and select restart and see if all works. Good luck

What does the shift key do?

von

It puts the computer into "safe" mode. Apple has a page on it that if it will not come to desktop to hold it down when starting. It is real good for fixing issues that no other software will fix. And it is easy to do.

I have the same issue with a WD 640 GB drive in 2 out of three MBPs.

Unit 1: 640 GB drive stalls, Sound quit after 1 day, Apple replaced MBP

Unit 2: 640 GB drive works great but sound has high pitched squeal, Apple replaced MBP

Unit 3: 250 GB stock drive works no problem, 640 GB drive stalls, Argggggg

In all three cases I have went through all the usual support steps, safe mode, PRAM reset, Reinstall....

You need to start your own question.

It's been a complete fraud. Safe mode, Pram, still does not respond. Ifixit will change it. Thanks god.

I have the same issue, too. My MBP installed the OS very, very slowly when using my 320GB Seagate HDD. Besides, it took 20 minutes to copy just a text file from Desktop to another place. Something must have gone wrong? Anyone have any advice? I'm going to buy a new HDD to replace the orginal HDD in MBP but will it work???

If you want to upgrade your MBP 2.53GHZ mid 2009 with a larger HDD downgrade the EFI version to 1.6, the latest is 1.7.

This wil solve the freezing and the spinning ball.
