So I get home from work, click my mouse to fire up my 3yr old PowerBook G4 1.5 from sleep and I get presented with nothing apart from a grey screen and the spinning gear icon in the middle of it. Hmmmm........ Switch off PowerBook and restart it. Same grey screen and spinning gear icon accompanied by some horrible noises from the hard drive area. Not so good. Searches MacRumors forums for similar incidents. Re-set PRAM/NVRAM and the PMU. Still no go, so it would appear that my 80GB hard drive is toast. And it's only one month out of a three year AppleCare warranty. Very convenient……. Anyway, as there appears to be nothing else wrong with the PowerBook I’m thinking that a new hard drive would be in order. So my questions to Macrumors are: 1. Can anybody recommend a decent replacement hard drive for my PowerBook.? I’ve been through the forums and Hitachi, Samsung and Western Digital seem to be the popular ones. I believe that I have a PATA interface so I’m limited to about 120GB which would be fine and I would prefer a 7200RPM version as well. Do any users out there have real life experience of this.? 2. Can anybody recommend a decent data recovery company in the Toronto area.? I would like to try and recover as much data as possible.? TIA.
