I was getting some weird crashes in Safari for some reason on my Dual 2.0, so I repaired permissions and ran Mac Janitor. No bad permissions and MacJanitor ran just fine. I though well, I'll restart and maybe it'll work itself out. Thats when things went horribly wrong. As the machine tried to boot up it would get stuck at the grey Apple screen and not go anywhere. I pushed the power button until it turned off and tried to zap the PRAM. Same thing. Not good. Booted from OSX.3 CD and tried disk repair- not capable of fixing it. TechTool 4. Tried, but no dice. Now the drive does not even show up as mounted. My data drive also shows to have some damage. But it's readable and looks to have accepted the Disk utility repairs. (I'm thinking a power surge or something may have caused the problems. Here are my system specs: RevA Dual 2.0, 1 GB CL2.5 RAM, Raptor 36GB 10K RPM HD (the really screwed up one), WD 160GB 7200RPM HD (not so screwed up, still readable), USB PCI card, Powermate, Soundsticks, iSight, Radeon 9800 OEM 128MB, Formac 2010. I need to at least access the drive so I can try to save my stuff. The data on that drive has YEARS of emails, contacts, etc. Some is on .Mac, but alot is not. Your help and suggestions are very appreciated!
