Long story short, my computer is pretty messed up. I downloaded 10.4.9 and it wouldn't install, and after many, many error messages, I decided to restart my computer. Bad idea, as the computer never restarted. I was told by an Apple Care expert to re-analyze my hard drive. So I whipped out my Tiger cd's and obeyed. Afterwards I analyzed it everything was set back to the original Tiger installation from the CDs. After this, I started trying to redownload the updates to make my version uptodate, like I had it previously. A couple of problems arose: 1) The download speeds on a T1 connection were less than around 5 kbps/sec. Extremely and utterly slow for no reason whatsoever. No idea why. 2) Whenever I tried to begin another process, like look at help for iTunes, or go surf the web, my computer would severely lag, and without any warning, the internet connection would cease. I have no idea why...my connection has never broken off in a year, and suddenly, under two instances within an hour, it has done it. Not only this, but if I try to use it with the internet down, the computer still lags like crazy. Not only this but after this, the computer won't reset also, and I have to take the battery out and restart it, something I haven't had to do until today. 3) Not to mention I lost around 6-8 GB's of space doing this re-analyzing. The fact apparently cannot get this back unless I reset my hard drive makes me want to punch someone What is going on with my laptop? It's a year and a half old. It's an iBook G4, 1.25gigs of memory, 100gb hard drive, nothing has gone wrong with it until this stupid update came out and screwed my computer up. Anyone. Please help or advise!
