'shared library error' message in Pro Tools

boot drives, in which the computer turned on with no problem.
some reading on the Avid forums, I reset the PRam & NVRAM, did a zero erase on the
boot drive after backing it up & repaired disk permissions from the 'disk utility'
located in the install disk menu. After this, when I tried to launch PT's I received the
'unable to locate Digidesign Hardware' error message that wouldn't go away even tho'
everything was on, connected & working fine previously.
uninstalled & re-installed Pro Tools from the original install disk & now I'm
