My friend is using a PowerPC which he has maintained well over the years. Today, it fails to finish booting and freezes on boot attempts. He tells me the following:
"It was operating just fine then it froze up. This almost never happens. I had to force quit. Now it will not restart. I get the bong then the Apple and the rotating clock. The clock finally stops and the computer cooling fan comes on"
And ideas on where to start to fix this?
He said his harddrive is not full (to his knowledge) and he has dusted it out inside periodically.
