    Apple really is out to get my money out of me this month.

    A week or so ago my Airport Express died. No warning, it just stopped working one day. So I do the good little fanboy thing and upgrade to an Airport Extreme Base Station.

    I installed it, updated its firmware to be current, and the next day my 17" Powerbook G4 stops booting. I don't know if they are related and I'm in the process of backing it up through target disk mode.

    I just wanted to see if anyone had heard of anything similar happening.

    Slight update as I'm posting this while trying to fix it: Disk Utility returned the error "Invalid extent entry" and then failed to finish verifying. I have repaired the drive now and it has not given me that error again.

    yeah there's probably no way it's related to the airport.

    now that you repaired the drive, does it boot?

    Still doesn't boot but it was 3AM when I repaired it so I gave up for the night. I'll be trying some more tonight. Worst case, I'm all backed up I just have to reformat/reinstall Tiger
