Hi all, hopefully someone will be able to help with this.

 

This is a Mac Pro (don't have the exact spec right now, but will have later, I think it's a dual), which is used to run ProTools. It has no internet or network connections.

 

It's running OS X 10.5.8 and has been for quite a while with no problems. Nothing new has been installed recently (hardware or software).

 

The other night it was playing back a ProTools session and recording a mix of the result when it started behaving strangely. When ProTools is recording, it creates a waveform display of the recording as it goes, and this suddenly started being corrupted by what appeared to be bits of a photograph or video image. The owner tried to hit "Stop", but nothing would work. Mouse still moved, but no button response, keyboard shortcuts ineffective, and Force Quit did nothing, so in the end he had to kill it by holding down the power button.

 

Since then it won't boot normally, though it will boot into Safe Mode with no problem.

 

On a "normal" startup, it powers up, goes through the grey screen/Apple logo/spinning thing stage on the left monitor, then that one goes blue, then both monitors go blue for a few seconds and finally both screens go black, with a mouse pointer in the top left of the left screen. You can move the mouse all over both screens (though if you wait a few seconds it leaves a copy of the pointer in the top left), but that's as far as it gets. Disk activity continues for a while (maybe a minute or so) after the screens go to black, and the spinning rainbow thing comes and goes, but it then seems to give up.

 

Here's what I've tried so far:

 

Boot into Safe Mode - no problem

 

Verify disk using Disk Utility - no problem

 

Repair permissions - loads of screwed up stuff, all with "permission should be ?-----" . Repair didn't work. Finally fixed these by running the 10.5.8 combo updater twice (known issue with this updater), then repairing again. Permissions now come up clean.

 

Cleared all caches etc. using Cocktail - slight improvement. Before this it was sticking on the one blue screen stage.

 

Got rid of a few corrupt preference files using Cocktail (all last modified years ago) - no difference.

 

Reset PRAM and MBC - no difference

 

Tried booting with everything disconnected except one screen, keyboard and mouse - no difference.

 

I'm going over later to see if reseating cards/removing memory etc. will make any difference, and to see if it will fire up fom it's original 10.4.? CD.

 

Beyond that, I'm kind of out of ideas, so I figured I'd see if anyone else had any!

 

Below is (what I think!) is the relevant bit of the log file, showing a failed boot, forced power off and reboot intoSafe Mode.

 

Any clues to corrupt files etc. in there?

 

Brian

    Hi Brian,

     

    Well, not sure if you'll get this reply - it's  almost a year after your post and of no help, but I'm experiencing the exact same problem as you and I noticed I have a very similiar system: MacPro 1.1, Dual-Core Xeon, 2.66GHz.

     

    Did you figure out what the problem was? I'm trying many things but as I can't boot off the system disc to reinstall I'm wondering if it's time to buy the MacMini rather that try to spend money on parts for this thing.

    Thanks Brian, this does help... after I read your post I found a number of others with the same issue. Seems that the NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT cards are all going kaput!

     

    Now I just need to decide if I want to buy a new card, or if I should just go out and buy a souped-up mac-mini, which would be even faster that my 2007 Mac Pro. I was hoping to use the Mac Pro for another year or so, but if I have to spend almost $300 just to do so, it may not be worth it...

     

    Cheers,

    Lucinda
