Sad Mac

No, I didn’t get the dreaded Sad Mac icon, but I do have a sad mac today. My Titanium PowerBook G4/400, to be exact.

Read some of the grisly details (and some relevant discussion) on this thread on the MacNN Forums from a little while back. Here’s the screenshot of what the Ti eventually regresses into… it is only now a mere few minutes before this happens these days. Is it possible that trying to install Jaguar fried my VRAM? Say it isn’t so! 🙁

Anyone out there have any idea what could be going on? This is messed up, man.

Well, I don’t have that AppleCare for nuthin’… gotta use it now!

But sleep first, would be good.

One thought on “Sad Mac”

  1. Sorry to hear about the sad Mac icon on your TG4. I am still salivating at the thought of getting one, though I may have to be happy with an iBook. Right now, my trusty Powerbook 5300cs is doin’t the job.

    As I am waiting for your popup image to come up, I just read an article somewhere that the ‘sad Mac’ icon is different now…if memory serves me correctly. In any event, hope AppleCare does what you’ve paid for it to do…

    -> F!
