A friend of mine has been having some seriously weird occurences with his powerbook lately. The last thing he claimes he did was install that latest security update. He is runnign 10.2.8 but at the moment cannot connect to the internet via airport or ethernet and everything on the right side of the menu bar is blank, no clock, airport icon, battery icon, etc.... I got him to repair permission and boot form the 10.1 discs(all he has at the moment) and run Disk Ut. Nothing has worked. Anyone have any ideas? Would installing Panther or re-installing the system be the only way to fix it? Anyone heard of anything like this?
