My fiance's Pismo has suddenly refused to recognize the HD. I have tried the apple care cd and all of its tools to no avail, the disk seems unmountable is there anyway I could go about recovering the files on the HD before initializing or replacing it? Secondly my Lombard running 10.2 is dying a slow death, it often completely freezes, refuses to boot or takes 10 minutes and up to boot despite maxed out ram, oh and the keyboard is no longer functioning. Is the Lombard salvageable, and if so is it worth it? On a side note I have ordered a TiBook 1Ghz to replace a Dual 1Ghz and then a Dual 867 Pmac (both due to unresolvable kernel panic issues). Are the heat issues with the TiBook enough to warrant the purchase of some sort of cooling system and would said system net and sort of performance improvement? Thank you for dealing with so many queries.
