You guys have been so helpful in the past, please help me boot my Mac to salvage my data. Details are as follows: Beige G3 (233 MHz) For the longest time, when I boot up, the screen displays a message half way through: "An AppleShare system error occurred. (Please run the Chooser to activate AppleTalk.) If you have volumes set to mount at startup you may need to throw away your AppleShare Prep file. Consult your documentation." I then click OK or hit enter, and the computer finishes booting up. Last night, I opened the Chooser and ACTIVATED AppleTalk so that I could backup my data onto my G4 PowerBook. After I restarted the computer it took a very long time to boot up. Once it finally booted, I reopened the Chooser and DEACTIVATED AppleTalk once again to put things back to normal. My subsequent attempts to boot up show me the same old message about an AppleShare system error, but my KEYBOARD and MOUSE will not respond. As a consequence, I cannot click OK, and my computer will not finish booting up. The data that I was trying to backup is now inaccessible. Booting with extensions off won't work because my keyboard won't respond, nor can I launch control panels at startup. Please advise, any information would be appreciated, the information on my drive has been backed up recently, but the latest information saved has not been backed up and it is vital to my livelyhood. Thank you very, very much!
