    Had 24" iMac that exhibited the same symptoms. Diagnosed with bad logic board by respectable shop.
  • Answer to: External access of MBA HD

    As i stated way above, the enclosure i bought from Digital Intelligence DID work for me. The LIF connector was actually a "VHIF" connector, but it did work. Bought this one recently <http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001OYC...> from Amazon.com and it, too, worked on the model of MacBook Air that i had at the time. It was a LIF connection. ---Danno "May your Mac(s) always start up!"

  • Answer to: Mac Mini wont boot

    IF it is a G4 Mini...you could try booting into Open Firmware: on power button push, hold down "option+command+O+F". If it works, you should see a white screen with small black text. At the prompt, type... 1. reset-nvram (press Return) then type... 2. set-defaults (press Return),and then type... 3. reset-all (press Return) Your Mini should then restart. Maybe this will help. Good luck. Also, might swap RAM out with known good memory. Reseating bad RAM = bad RAM. ( Can run Mini without the top in place for troubleshooting...just be careful.)
  • Answer to: Finder keeps relaunching?
