View Full Version : PowerBook and Finder problems

05 May 2005, 04:57 PM
Hi guys!

My powerbook 1.5, 512 ram with the latest Panther OSX is having huge problems these days. Every time I try to browse through my hard drive in finder, after scrolling down for like 10 %, the whole thing stops and it just cycles the rainbow cursor forever with CPU at 95%. So I cannot browse throug the harddrive, I cannot do anything unless I kill the finder. But after I start browsing again, the same problem reapears.

Any suggestion what might be a problem here and how to solve it? Tnx.

very odd, you could try mending your permissions, from the disk utility. a long shot would be to replace your with another.

Best bet would be to reformat, you know it will fix and reformatting on a mac isnt as hard as it used to be, its pretty quick.

After deleting my Max Payne game from the HD everything works fine. Goddamn OSX.
