My MacBook is acting weird recently. It starts to show flashing folder with question mark during bootup and spinning beach ball when it wakes up from a long sleep. When these happens, I will have to power it down, then it works perfectly again. They occurs quite frequent, about once in every 5 bootup/wakes up.
Running Lion 10.7.4, and I just replaced the HDD with a SSD 2-3 months ago. The problem starts to occur about a month ago.
I suspect it has something to do with the SSD, but I can't really pinpoint the exact problem. I'd already reselect the startup disc multiple times in system preferences.
Any ideas? Thanks.
Update: OWC just came back to me, telling me it's probably due to SATA incompatibility and is offering me a refund. The refund is 50 dollars less than the purchase price (current value price, he said) and I am responsible for the shipping cost. I am considering if I should just keep it, as I am not located in the states and shipping back is really an hassle, plus the cost.
