hey guys. i have a powerbook g4 that's four years old. i replaced the hard drive after it crashed about 2 years ago.

the problem:

a couple days ago, while downloading some of my pics from my camera, a pop-up came up saying "scan disk almost full". So, i got rid of some things freed up some space. while surfing facebook a day later, the same message came up. the next morning i shut the computer down to fly home. when i got home, i was unable to boot up the computer. i pressed the power button, the hard drive spun for a few seconds, and a low pitched tone rang three times while the status light by the release latch came on then blinked three times. after about 10 more seconds, it blinked again doing the same thing.

anyone ever have this problem? i'm seeing a genius tuesday.

tia,
cate
