GAH! Just when I get my powerbook 5300 to work with the internet, it gets the chimes of death.
This is what happened:
I tried playing a game of tetris from a floppy.
The computer froze.
I hit restart.
All is going normal, I see the happy mac.
The hard drive is clicking more quietly than normal and making a spinning sound, if you don't know what I mean, ask me to elaborate.
Chimes of death sound.
I tried making another startup disk (to see if it's just a harddrive problem) with my powerbook 180, but all the sudden, floppy disks won't work in the drive. So then I tried networking it with my SE to transfer the system files to make a boot disk and the appletalk network doesn't work.
So what could be wrong with my powerbook? Does anyone have any experience with these? Could I open it up and fix it myself?
