Alright, I realise this is not the first post of its kind, but I have gone through everything I could find on the topic without an answer to my question. I'm using a mac which runs OS X 10.5. It's old and I have probably filled it to the edge. I dropped it yesterday about 10 cm from the table. Afterwards It had shut down and when restarting it gets stuck at the spinning wheel and apple icon. I've tried safe mode, verbose, fsck and so on.


I get the following error messages:

disk0s2: I/O error

Invalid node structure (4,12449)

Volume check failed

/dev/rdisk0s2 (hfs)

Exited with signal 8


I don't have the install  disk  and I'm not looking to spend money on diskwarrior or repairments. I don't care about what's on it, I have everything at home on my newer macbook. Only brought this old one for travelling. My question is if there is anything I can do to get the harddisk running again or if have to buy a new one .


Any help would be appreciated!

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
