    Well I posted on here about some problems I was having with my mini a while ago and I ended up taking it to the Apple Store where they replaced the RAM and Logic Board. I got it back last week and everything seemed to work ok but now after using it for a bit I am noticing a few new minor problems. The thing that bothers me the most is that I can no longer connect to my PC's HDD through my network. When I try to it just beachballs and finder stops responding for about 5 minutes then it will come up and say that it can can't find the alias. It also takes longer to shut down than before and whenever I reboot the volume goes back to the middle setting which isn't a huge problem but it is annoying. Does anyone know what would be causing this and how to fix it because I really don't want to take it to the Apple Store again.

    Have you tried to run any of your disk utilities? It sounds like a bad hardrive to me

    Delete the alias of the network connection to your PC, and Browse the network (Command-K) to re-make a connection with the PC.

    Well if you try to delete it, it says that you don't have sufficient privileges. Also another minor problem is the screensaver comes on every 15 minutes as I set it to, but it comes on even when I'm using it which is pretty annoying.

    Well I just got it back from the Apple Store and I don't really want to go down there again because it takes a hour to get there. And how would they know whats going on when my PC isn't there?

    Is your account an admin account for the system?

    Also, you didn't mention if you reinstalled the OS after you got it back. If they replaced the logic board, that may have something to do with it - or maybe the bad logic board snafu'd the setup before the replacement.

    Yes its an admin account. No I didn't reinstall OS X, I might try it if I can't figure it out but it would be the third time I would have to set up my mac which isn't very good since I've only had it for a month. I did the hardware test and it said there wasn't any problems.

    It sounds like reinstalling would be your next step.
