    :mad:
    So, after months of reformatting every week to get my PowerBook to operate, my hard drive finally said its last few clicks. No prob, hd's are covered under warranty.
    So yeah, get a new hd. THAT SAME NIGHT I GET IT BACK WITH A NEW FRIGGEN HARD DRIVE, it starts to fail, and I had to reformat. The night after, same thing.
    I'm getting pissed.
    What happeneds, is my hard drive starts to go click... click... click... click... instead of CLICKCLICKCLICKMOFOCLICKFASTCLICKING. And everything freezes. Time for a trip back to the Apple Store! Oh joy.
    EDIT: How ironic. After I hit send, my hard drive started to fail.

    Well, I am sorry to hear that....you are very angry, but I guess that's understandable.

    maybe the next one will work out...if not.....something is fishy....

    I depend on my computer for homework, music, and mostly school. When I don't have it, it makes Jesus cry.
    He's probably crying from lauging too hard at me though.

    Hi,

    My 15 inch Powerbook keeps freezing -- I used to think it would only happen out of Sleep but last night it froze. Most of the time I can get it back again if I let it sit for a couple of hours -- not sure why this is the case.

    Essentially after it freezes and I bring it back up -- a little mac icon flashes -- I assume it cannot find a bootable drive for the OS -- as it cannot see the hard drive.

    However when I boot from the ROM -- the Extended Test all checks out???

    Is this similar to your problem -- my powerbook is not booting as i type this.

    Thanks,

    Jason

    Possibly... if your Mac is under warranty get them to replace the hard drive.

    UPDATE:

    I sent my PowerBook back to the Apple store for yet another hard drive. I'll have it back Friday. Until then, I'm on an iMac running OS 9... damnit.

    Well, my friend back home had to send his ibook back for the second logic board replacement..they told him this time that the problem wouldn't happen agian..they fixed the logic board for sure...now lets hope this really is for sure.

    By the way Absolute Zero, what kind of hard drives have you had in your iBook?

    I saw your post on using the Powerbook on the bed, maybe it gets too hot there... Just a thought

    well, I am assuming that you're using it on your lap when on your bed...so there should be no excuse.....it's a friggin laptop.....and a hard drive should be able to handle it...

    I've got a toshiba in mine as well....and have had no problems either.
