Apple disclaims any and all liability for the acts, omissions and conduct of any third parties in connection with or related to your use of the site. But system administration has never been one of my talents. What would be the downfall to using it in Safe mode until I can afford a new machine? Aparent HD failure...

As such, if you only have a few bad blocks, this can make your drive appear to work for a while. Keep in mind that the behavior of some devices such as the AirPort card may vary depending on computer and Mac OS X version.

Can anyone point me in the right direction as to where I can find out what the error code actually means??? Quite possibly, your test which says "all ok" simply doesn't test the same things as the Apple Hardware Test. #4 fryke, Aug 29, 2006 jprp83 uix_expand uix_collapse Registered Joined: Aug Because there product's actually work.Now what would you as the customer like to do? http://arstechnica.com/civis/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=1125073 If he had run a surface scan, he would have seen the bad blocks.

So, other than the partitioning, sounds like you did the right thing. Long story short..if I want to run my Mac I have to reinstall the OS every time! Immediately, I thought: MEMORY PROBLEMS... HOWEVER, the next day, the situation was back...
