ok i have power mac G5 with a Dual 1.8 processor and 3gigs of RAM from 2003. the machine "was" running on leopard 10.5.8 (i think..it was the latest update but i dont remember) and it was an awesome machine for me. only a month ago i had my first problem, the machine froze, (which it had never done in the 2 years i had it) and i series of messeges appeared in trough the screen over the desktop saying something about...problem with kernel something ..something. i didnt pay much attention and restarted it. It didnt happen again until 2 weeks ago and from that point on it got worst. each time the kernel error had a different name, (as in ..kernel: "something" is corrupted.) then 4 days ago my mac just would not turn on. i tried a few trouble shooting steps to try to come up with a solution and this is what i found out: its not the RAM: iwas able to test out every single one of them and they all checked out fine. i switched the hard drive to another mac to see if i had the same error and fair enough i did. i tried to start up in target mode in order to retrieve my data... that didnt work. it would freeze and ask to shut off. so i think its the hard drive ..but im not sure. what can i do? will CCC recover my drive even though its corrupted if thats the case? also my when my computer would boot up it would be fine so long as i did not make the hard drive run to much, like i could open safari and browse the internet for hours, but the second i opened any other program it would start and a few senconds later freeze. which is why again, i think its the hard drive. i had tried resetting the power management Unit, taking outthe motherboards battery waiting 10 min and putting it back, and even trying to veryfiy the hard drive by using disk utility but nothing has worked. diskt utility will only make the drive freeze the comp. any ideas.?
