    the question would be whether or not it might get some potential software issue "treated" a bit better than Onyx?

    I believe so.

    would either of those be able to diagnose specific hardware problems that AHT does not?

    2.3175% chance on DW, <1.0% chance on TTP is my guess.

    might be a 2.3175% chance of getting that done.

    Now you're on board.

     

    I think TTP will only find or be useful for what AHT would be.

     

    Once in a great while, especially on older OSX versions, DW can correct things that Disk Utility says is no problem & never show up.

    It is rare not to have found the cause after this amount of effort which is why I am inclined to an unusual hardware fault. The most common is one RAM bit being intermittent which can be difficult to track down especially if it is temperature dependent. I still advise selectively removing RAM to eliminate this.

     

    You should also be aware that both crashes and forced quits can cause software damage - relatively rare but probability increases with the number of crashes or forced quits.

     

    I would do a full backup, erase disk, install OS and Apple software only without importing anything from previous OS. Test for a while to see if the problem still exists.

     

    If this works then refrain from the use of too many third party utilities and applications especially Onyx.

    You may be onto something with the Ethernet.

     

    Airport drivers are disabled in many versions of OSX in Safe Mode.

     

    In OSX, Apple icon>About this Mac>Mre Info>Network, does the Ethernet card show up there?

    In my experience, it wouldn't hur to run AJ AUTO.

    I have tried various AppleJack commands but these days I most often use:

     

    applejack AUTO shutdown

     

    I prefer 'shutdown' as resuming from AppleJack is different to a normal boot.

     

    Could it be a wired ethernet (wireless also uses ethernet) driver problem - perhaps connected with duel boot?

     

    I use Ubuntu and Leopard but on different hardware.

    On the Airport PW...

     

    Instead of joining it from the list, click the WiFi icon at the top, and click join other network. Fill in everything as needed.
