I've had multiple problems with my new MacBook Pro with its preinstalled OS Lion, it freezes constantly and will take me around 10-15 times just to turn it on.
I have had no resolution to this problem although I was suggested to wipe off everything from my laptop and start again to see if the problem would be resolved.
So my question is this, will I be able to use my serial number on the laptop again?
I am asking this because I have a student licence and therefore only can have one use of it.
I'm really scared of losing my Adobe Software as it's so expensive, even if it was discounted because i'm a student (i'm in full time education).
The software I have is the Adobe Creative Suite 5.5.
I've heard about using the deactivating method by clicking on the Help button.. However I don't know the difference between the normal 'Deactivate' or 'Deactive Permanently'.
I was also wondering if anyone could help me with what would happen if I ended up having to recieve a new MacBook Pro from the retailer/Apple if it turns on wiping my Mac won't work?
Would I have to 'Deactivate Permanently' so I could use it on my new laptop?
I really hope someone is able to help me as being only a 16 year old I still have much to learn when it comes to computers and I don't want to mess this up!
