I am a new member here, so go easy.

I currently have a Mac Powerbook g4 laptop, and I am running into problems. I had it for 2 years now and ever since it stopped working the system wouldnt start up. Nothing would work, just a boring long loading screen on my startup.

Now suddenly I just turned on my mac two weeks ago and everything works. The Mac os x login screen came on, I typed my password and voila.

Man was I happy to have my apple back, but one problem. My mac is running so slow, it takes 30 min to start safari. I was told my HDD was burned last time and now it works.

I tried installing Os 9 but it says the following "Please turn off extentions", and so I did it still showed the same message. I decided to try Mac Os X which is my current version and the following message comes up "Mac installion had an unexpected error"- I think it was error type 1 or something.

The Mac Os classic folder 9 is not found, I searched and nothing. The system wont restart because the same messages pop up. The applications take like forever to start up, and there is nothing I can do.

Help me.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

If you can get it to at least try to boot into OS X, (start it while holding down the Command and X keys), try this from an old post.

It might not work if it's set to boot into 9, though that's only a wild guess.
