    Hi,

    I've had my 12" Powerbook for a few months now. I'm currently running 10.3.8 and am not experiencing any problems. However, when I start up the Powerbook, it shows a folder with the Finder icon for about a second before going to the login screen. I don't think this problem is unheard of but I didn't find anything using the search. Is it anything serious or just something minor? Anything I can do to fix it?

    Thanks.

    it means its taking a second to find the hard drive

    what you need to do is go into your utilities folder, inside the apps folder, and find the disk utility, then highlight your hard drive and hit repair permission

    might help


    if it doesnt, have a some tech check it out that isnt a moron

    Thanks for the suggestions. I found I had to change which drive it chose at start up by going to system preferences and then 'startup disk'. All working now :)
