1. try single-user mode (hold down Cmd-S during startup tone and sequence). this should take you to a command-line screen where you can run the suggested fsck command: /sbin/fsck -fy (at the command prompt).
2. go here to see complete startup procedure in situations like this: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1417.
3. if that doesn't work, it sometimes helps to start the computer in target mode while attached to another computer via Firewire (hold down the "T" key while starting up). then you can navigate through your ~/Library/Preferences and find the most recently modified ones and pull those into a test folder on your hard drive somewhere (just create a new folder to hold them temporarily). then restart as normal. sometimes just yanking the most recently modified preference files (.plist files) works.

The computer is locked up (multi colored wheel spinning) t


You can go to the Apple (top left) and on the drop down menu, select "force quit"(which is similar to CTRL-ALT-delete on PC) and quit the program that is locking up.The fact that it locks up with 4 screns oprned tells me that the iBook may need more memory.I believe that the iBooks come with 256 MB. You can add memory and keep this from happening.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Just can't get it to start


Hi there Emimely
Unfortunately you will not be able to get passed that. Itis quite a fundamental error.

Do you still have your original installation disk?

You need to boot your make up from that disk and see if you can make some repairs from the apple utility. Failing that you will have to re-install the OS. If you can see the drive from the install disk and you have a external drive available you might want to back up important files now and do a clean install. Or archive the previous system.
