Curious boot problem / wifi problem.

I have an early 2009 Mac mini, with two problems. First the wifi. If I enable the wifi network my mini gets totally stuck....doesn't react to anything. Bluetooth works ok. Possibly still a defective airport/bluetooth card? I tried to search for a replacement part from your site, but couldn't find one.

The second boot problem is weird. The mini runs just fine , goes and wakes from sleep, as long as I don't restart it. If I boot the mini, it gets stuck on the white screen with apple logo on it. Can't even see the spinning "loading" thingy.

Then if I totally shut down the mini for 15 minutes, and then start it, it boots up just fine and works flawlessly...(well, apart from that previously mentioned wifi).

Things I've tried:

- PRAM/SMC reset

- Replaced the old memory modules

- Installed a ssd drive, and cloned all the stuff from old HDD. So osx now boots from the new ssd

None of the above helped.

Things yet to try:

- replace the defective(?) wifi-card

-clean-install OSX.

Any tips appreciated.

Sounds like a failing HD in addition to the damaged Airport card. If you don't need wireless/bluetooth pull the card. If you still see the same behavior re: white screen I'd replace the HD. If you must have wireless as a work around try a Wireless USB Dongle.

Thanks for your answer. But I don't know about the HDD being the culprit. I've scanned it with the disk utility a few times, and everytime it's reported to be fine. And also there's now a new (ssd) drive which the osx boots from.

The wifi isn't a must for me, but bluetooth is, so taking the card out permanently is out of question. Maybe I'll just have to stick with the ethernet connection.

They make bluetooth dongles too.
