ive got a powerbook, now its over two years old, and i never had a problem
with it before (the battery life was going down rapidly and recently i only got about 10 minutes out of it, but thats not the issue im writing here about...)
I was transferring some files between the powerbook and my mac desktop using the airport network, and i heard a bang (not such a loud bang, but loud enough to alert me something was wrong) so i looked over and i see the laptop has switched itself off.
I tried to restart it, but i just get the white screen with the apple and a loading thing. goes on for hours and hours with no change (i saw some other people here have had a similar problem a) and so i tried to reboot from the disk, still nothing - i tried restarting while holding the C key, and still nothing - when i held the D key while starting i was faced with a purely black screen.
Got no idea what to do! if anyone has a suggestion other than throw it out the window i will be eternally gratefull.
