    I really need your help!

    System:
    Macbook Pro 1Gen, 2GB Ram
    Issue:
    When booting, after Login, finder is continously starting and quitting, never showing any desktop icons or sth. like that.
    What i've done
    Issue appeared after installing new Safari Update. -> deleted hdd, overwritten with nulls -> recovered with time machine backup (i had serveral some small other issues, and thought it would be a good idea) (Tried two different backups, one even 2 months old, when this issue surely doesn't came up, but had the same problem)
    • repaired permissions, repaired hdd without problems from leo dvd
    • booting in safe mode, single user mode, verbose mode doesn't help, same problem;
    • deleting the com.apple.finder.plist file doesn't solve the problem.

    Have you tried reinstalling OS X from anything else than the TM image?

    no not yet. I want to avoid this step. My Time Machine Backup worked fine serveral times before.

    Ram should be ok, tried with 3 different. HDD seems to be fine, put it into an external case and checked it with another macbook, runs perfectly fine and fast.

    You'll eventually may need to do this. I'm pretty sure you can also reinstall OS X and then just use your Time Machine Backup to restore it to your mac.

    Also have you installed anything lately that would cause this?

    Ain't it the same if i reinstall leopard and than do the time machine backup, and just restoring via tm backup?

    I'm not sure, but i really don't think that i have installed anything lately.
    What I think is strange, and which, in my opinion only could be caused by an hardware error is that i really wiped my hdd, and restored with a backup one month old, when i didn't had that problem. That really sounds wierd to me...

    no other ideas? Then i'm trying the reinstall.
