Ugh... This really is pissing me off to no end. A month or two ago, my Aluminum Powerbook's original hard drive started to make a grinding noise. The computer suddenly said that none of your remembered networks are available, and my date was sent to Dec 1 (or 31), 1969. When I checked my Macintosh HD size, it said -- KB. Fastforward to a week or two, or three ago, when I got my replacement hard drive from eBay. I installed the HDD, and installed Leopard. Now, this hard drive seems to show the same symptoms that my last one exuded. I'll try to see what happens if I split the hard drive into two partition (it seems to be able to still make partitions,) CCC the first one onto the second one, then delete the first one. But again, really freaking annoying.
