How to replace the lcd on a powerbook g4 model m8407

Hello, I recieved a used powerbook g4 as a gift and the lcd cracked after i dropped it. I was able to find the same model on ebay for $100 thinking that I could just swap the hard drives. I realized after that my cracked g4 has more memory. Is there anyway to swap the lcd's or monitors affordablly instead? i really have no budget for a new computer right now. Thank you.

Issues loading software on powerbook G4


Try using the finder to locate your software packages and simply relocate their icons to the applications folder by opening several new finder windows and dragging and dropping them there.

If you, in fact, went through each application's setup, then the icons were created somewhere on the disk, perhaps on the desktop or even above the desktop, external to the particular user.

Try locating each package back to the applications folder.

When typing it writes number 9 all the time


How often? Can you make it happen on demand?
Acquire any other USB keyboard, and plug it into a USB port on your PowerBook. Use this keyboard for a while. If you don't see the problem, then I suspect some sort of short in your keyboard cable, or perhaps a spill in the keyboard itself.
PowerBook G4 keyboards are very easily replaced, without opening up the laptop itself.

Need Mac G4 laptop schematic manuel


Not sure if you want an actual circuitry schematic, or a internal parts guide.

A manual for field-replacing just about every component inside your Powerbook can be found here.

I expect that circuitry schematics are much harder to come by, and are actually likely to be protected by trade secrets.

WhicH is the actual model/processor? And you will definitely need 3 specific tools. Let me know which model and I can send over a thorough site with photos and procedures.
