7 month old mac mini freezing & being slow

Hi,
in the last 2 weeks, my 7 month old mac mini has been acting very weird.  When I start it up first thing, it has the spinning ball for several minutes and is very slow when it does start working.  I emptied all my cache today, so am wondering what else to do.  I don't run FCP or any softwear that did not come with the mac, so am a bit concerned.

Try running the disk tools. It is in your applications folder under utilities. The portion of the disk tools program you want to run is 'repair disk permissions'

Hi, has this mini been opened up to add more memory?
I would suggest that before you conclude that the ATA bus is damaged, open the mini up and see if the ATA connector is still connected to the motherboard. (It's the same connector for both drives).

samabbott, Toni, The very first thing to check is Samsung warranty.. If not valid you will need to check and see if Samsung has a cash+old unit swapout program for refurbished same model??? Will this 512N do same thing if connected to different pc? If so, then I would suspect the unit's power supply. Whenever strange or weird stuff starts to randomly take place with an LCD display, I would first check the "switch-mode-power-supply"! Have you tested the pc with different Known Good lcd unit? Try the above stuff and report back with a new comment. 12fixlouie

Hi, this can come form a lot of things, harware or software related. Software related: The easiest solution would be to backup your data and do a "clean install". hardware related: the easiest solution is to test your hard drive using the disk utility, and repair it if needed. If you have added extra memory, take it out to be sure that they are not the cause.

2000 s10 starter last only 2 months,


I would check current draw with a good ammeter & se how much current the starter draws when cranking. I owuld guess about 400 amps, but check with Delco. Other possibility is starter is binding on flywheel.
Did you disassemble one of the faulty staters to see if armature is rubbing on magents or coils?
Are these starters remans or new? Remans sometimes have problems.
