... Don't deserve Macs. My mate phoned me last night and asked if I could have a look at his 17" PowerBook as it was having trouble starting up. When I saw it I wept... 1st the latch no longer works: There are dents everywhere! The Battery is loose: And there's a dent in the lid that affects the screen: Instead of starting up it goes to the Open Firmware screen. When you type Mac-Boot is just displays the flashing question mark. It won't find any OS folders when you hold Option. Anyone got any ideas?
