My PowerBook G4 stopped working the very same day I got my new mac mini i7. I took it to the Apple store Genius Bar off Knox/Henderson in Dallas,TX and they told me it was my hard drive. The genius at the apple store recommended a company that could recover the data. I forgot the name of the company he recommended. Does anyone know of a company or business (preferably in the Dallas area) that could recover my hard drive data and possibly get my powerbook up and running again?

Thanks

I think Apple was saying a Data Recovery place. That I am not sure. Maybe someone else will have some suggestions.

As far as getting the Powerbook G4 working again, It needs a new hard drive. The Powerbooks are not the easiest to change out the drive but I have done it. I don't know how skilled you are at computer repair. You can purchase a new drive and install it. I could point you to a tutorial that tells how to do it if you give me the exact model and specs of your Powerbook G4.
