12 inch PowerBook G4
I recently did a 7 step wipe of a 12 inch 1.33 Ghz Silver PowerBook G4. In attempting to partition the 75 Gig HD and reinstall the original OS I have been getting a handful of problems including: the machine freezes up while installing the original software as well as any 10.5 software I try to install, it tends to give me a backtrace terminated frame not mapped Kernel panic error. I have tried to wipe the disk again to start from scratch but it freezes as well. Yesterday I thought it actually did successfully re-wipe the HD but then I could not see the HD inside disk utility. This morning I see the disk but when trying to partition the HD it freezes up (just sits there never actually crashing). Is there a crafty move to try to save this old timer or is it time to give up the ghost? Thanks for any help.

why not running first apple hardware test?
If you don't have the original cds that came with the machine you can download them.
Link is on the faq on my sig.
