Another Question About Start up Problems with my G4 PowerBook
Yesterday I inquired about recent start up problems I'm having with a G4 Powerbook that I replaced the lcd screen on about a week ago, as to whether or not it might be an inverter failure or the dreadful failing logic board...??
To refresh and summerize the problem, the laptop won't start up using just the power button, I have to go through a series of keyboard commands several times before it will boot to the desktop. Now it's begun to freeze up on a regular basis once it does boot completely so I basically have to go through the whole process again.
My new question regarding this problem now is: Would a failing hard drive cause these start up and freeze up problems?
I suspect it's likely the original hdd that came with the computer which is approximately 8 1/2 years old but I can't really attest to this assumption.
In any event if there's a reasonable possibility that this might be the problem, I'll purchase another hdd for it and see if that fixes it.
