My MacBook locks up and shuts down. I have read numerous threads but haven't been able to get the info to fix this.

I do get this error;

Root disk errors: "Could not recover SATA HDD after 5 attempts. Terminating."

I have an aftermarket HD. I installed this a few years ago. so other than the HD going bad not sure what else it could be.

I had El Capitan installed when this originated. I just recently installed Sierra.

so other than the HD going bad not sure what else it could be.

The first rule of diagnostics is to not overlook the obvious. So, the very first thing that you should do is diagnose the hard drive.

  • Run Apple Hardware Test (AHT). Hold the D key while booting from a powered off state with the AC adapter connected and run the tests associated with the disk drive

  • Boot into recovery mode or with a USB installer (preferred) and via terminal issue the command diskutil info diskX | grep -i smart where diskX is the identifier of the drive in question. To get this issue the command diskutil list

Once you have determined the viability of your drive, then you can move on to what the other ailments could possibly be. Chances are, you will need to replace your hard drive because it's failing.. You mentioned that you already changed the HDD to an aftermarket one "a few years ago." Depending on the brand and quality of the drive you may already be outside it's useful life.

  • Unable to get to the diagnostics. When I try It just comes up with a triangle with a Asterisk in it and just does nothing. The SSD actually has a 10 year warranty on it. One thing I did find is that the intake for the cooling fans had a large amount of debris. I vacuumed that out. Haven't seen the error yet would normally happen within 1/2hr of use. The funny thing is I ran into this a few years ago on my brother in-laws computer and that caused a lot of issues due to over heating. I don't have a recovery USB I will be taking care of that tonight! Thanks for the input – scotthend21 Aug 14 '17 at 1:22
  • Is it a HDD or SDD? It's an important and significant difference. If you can run it for a half hour or so, you should be able to execute the commands I posted directly from the booted OS. – Allan Aug 14 '17 at 1:25
  • its a San Disk Extreme Pro SSD. So when I try to hold down the D. It just comes up with the triangle with the asterisk in the middle below that it has apple.com/support -3403D. I read on another forum that on the older mac it may require a utility disk to get to the diagnostics – scotthend21 Aug 14 '17 at 1:41
  • I believe that's correct - you will need the "Installation Disk 2" which contains the AHT software. Instead, try DiskDrill - the diagnostic tools are free. But to fully test it out, you will need your install disks. – Allan Aug 14 '17 at 1:51
  • looks like I will have to take it to apple store. I cant find the original disks. Thanks for the help. – scotthend21 Aug 14 '17 at 1:53
