    Ok so I did some searches and didn't come up with something similar to my problem. A list of my problems (PowerBook 15", 1.67 GHz PowerPC G4, 512, MB, 10.5.2 with all updates):

    -Finder doesn't work and will not relaunch

    -Cannot get apps to start from the dock. They just keep bouncing and then it takes forever to force quit

    -Top right of menu bar shows only Synergy, 360Connect, and Little Stich. No time, no battery icon, nothing. The three icons don't work either

    This all started today. I have Time Machine so I could use that. Other than that, I was thinking it was RAM or hardware problems. Any suggestions?

    Ok so I stayed up late trying everything I can. I tried resetting the PMU and I tried the fsck route. Still nothing. Some more interesting notes:

    EDIT: I also tried booting from the 10.5 install disk (Holding C when restarting, nothing)

    -I can use only Firefox, Word and iTunes. Both launch from the dock, NOTHING else will.

    -Because of this, Time Machine will not work, so I am SOL on that.

    -The sound and internet work, but neither menu bar icon appears. If I move my mouse up to the right corner, it beachballs.

    -Same goes with clicking anything on the desktop. Beachball.

    Anything now?
