PowerBook G4 12" with 1.33 GHZ CPU . What model is this?
I want to try and replace the hard-drive myself.I ran the Apple hardware test and got Error code 2STF/1/4. The Logic board and Airport passed. Online, l got info that said this meant the hard drive is shot. Where do l start? I can't find any info, with this model's CPU speed of 1.33 GHZ. Apparently, Apple refers to this model as "PowerBook G4 12"/DVI" However, when l try and find a repair manual, l cannot find it for this CPU speed, only the 1.5 GHZ or lower. How important is the exact speed?
Is there something else that l should try first? The laptop cannot recognize the hard drive. I had to shut it down with the power button- then when l tried to re-install the software- it couldn't locate the drive.
l am a NOVICE please advice, other than outsourcing, because funds aren't there.
