    Basically every time I turn on my MBP it has a grey loading bar like when you install OS X. But after loading it turns off and turning back on again does the same thing.

    I've tried command R and re install OS X but it comes up with an error.

    HELP!

    Also, try resetting the PRAM and SMC

    How long have you had it for? And which year MBP?

    First, let's check that the problem is that your Mac won't start up, and not that it won't turn on - it might sound confusing, but there's actually a big difference. Press the Power button on your Mac. If you don't hear a start-up chime, and you don't hear any fan or drive noise, or if there is no images, video or visuals of any sort on your display, then your Mac isn't turning on at all.

    A Mac that doesn't turn on is slightly different to one that doesn't start up. Apple suggests that you:

    Check the connection to the power.

    Try a different power cord or adaptor (if you have one).

    Disconnect all accessories (such as printers and USB hubs).

    If you recently installed new memory or a new hard drive,make sure they are correctly installed and compatible (if possible re-install the old memory or hard drive).4

    Cos my old MacBook did what yours was doing after a kernel panic then it died. I hope you manage to sort it out 😊
