Oh my I am in a pickle. (Sorry-I get really cheezy when I'm upset) The other day I tried to go on the internet, but the computer says there is no airport card installed!! Out of nowhere. I then repaired permissions, I even tried verifying and repairing the disc (even though I don't know what that does) and it wont finish verifying, it says "header needs minor repair". So, being too upset to investigate further, I shut it down and went to sleep. When I came home last night I decided to tackle it again. I noticed a LOT of dents on my Powerbook. When the Powerbook opened it did so hesitantly, as if the latch was screwed up. This is obviously where all problems started, I must not have noticed these dents and such the other day. Anyway, I hit the power button to boot it and nothing but the fan comes on. Quite loudly, I might add. I've never heard it so loud. I don't know what is going on-I know I didn't drop it, although before everything went wonky my brother spent the night and made a very hasty exit the next morning. I don't know if there is anything I can do to fix this, I doubt it, but I thought I'd give it a shot. I also have another question. Suppose the PB was dropped (it obviously was, or thrown or knocked over). Being under Applecare, would they fix the above problems or would it be on me to do so? Any help would be greatly appreciated. PS-Don't know if this info will help but here it isowerbook G4 1.5ghz running 10.4.4. UPDATE: I got it to power on (the airport card had somehow been disconnected) and I went straight to "Verify Disc". I get these results: Verifying volume “Macintosh HD” Checking HFS Plus volume. Checking Extents Overflow file. Checking Catalog file. Checking multi-linked files. Checking Catalog hierarchy. %) Checking Extended Attributes file. Checking volume bitmap. Checking volume information. Volume Header needs minor repair The volume Macintosh HD needs to be repaired. Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit 1 HFS volume checked Volume needs repair What should I do now? Also, FYI I found out my brother threw the Powerbook. That is where all the damage occured.
