Question about Apple MacBook Mac Notebook

1 Answer

Blank screen frozen

I turn on my computer and all I get is the the start up ring and it sounds like it is searching for a second, but then nothing....just a blank screen. I can't even use the mouse. I have tried to turn it off for a while and turn it back on but always the same result.

Insert your Mac install disk 1 into your macbook, and restart the mac. While powering on, hold down the "C" key to boot from CD. This will take you to the Mac OS X Reinstallation window. If you are able to enter this mode, then it's just a corrupted install, and you'll need to reinstall. If you cannot enter this mode, then there may be some hardware errors on your macbook.
Comment back on if that worked. If not, we'll try some other things.

Can not get the Operating system to Start, Grey Screen at Startup


Sound like your motherboard is going bad. ibook G4's are notorious for this. The only thing you can do is either replace the ailing motherboard or try to find the breaks on the existing board. I am going to try and bake a board and see if that repairs any SMD *(surface mounted device) breaks.
I will keep you posted!

Everytime I turn it on as soon as the home screen


I'd remove the converter you have downloaded.
A simple way to do this is to start the computer and from the desktop press the ommand key and 'f' this will launch the find window.
leave the fill-in line blank, but use the pull-down menu to change the search to a "created date" search. put in the date that you downloaded your converter. You should get a list of all files that were put into your computer when you downloaded. You can drag them to the trash from the find window. be careful not to drag any document that you've created. This will work if you've only downloaded the converter....if you've download more programs on the same day, they'll be gone too.
Another help is to start your computer with the Mac OS disc that came with your computer and when it reaches the finder, you can go to the menu and launch disk utility and do a repair to see if it can help remedy the problem.
Good luck with this....check back and let us know how you do.

Display screen does not work


First of all, try a restart with the monitor attached.
Secondly try going to the system preferences panel- It should be in the dock - the icon with the apple and the light switch.
Try to "detect displays" and see if it comes up in the menu and if the screen responds..

Let me know what you find out.

Hard drive failure


www.drivesavers.com

You can contact this companies regarding data recovery. The "Genius" was wrong about the drive being retuned to Apple, that will only occur if you have a system under warranty, and you would be returning it to Apple to avoid being charged.

As far as replacement hard drive going for $325, that too is pretty steep, see this link:

Blank screen upon powering up


First try resetting the PRAM - Hold Command + Option + P + R until u hear a chime.

If that doesn't work, apply firm pressure about 1 inch below the option + command and start the iBook, it takes the iBook to turn on the screen approx. 30 seconds.

Macbook - screen white/blank after turning on


Sounds like it could be a corrupted OS; have you tried forcing it to start up with the OS disk, holding down the 'C' key? That's the first place to start...

If it won't start up like that, you probably have a hardware problem. (You can get excellent troubleshooting guidance at: http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Mac/ ) depending on your level of geekness, and assuming the warranty is expired?

Good luck
