Zap the PRAM. Hold down "P" "R" "OPTION" "MAC LOGO" keys and power up. Hold down keys until you hear the the starting chimes 6 times. Also try booting from the CD. Insert in CD drive and restart holding down the "C" key.

We brought a used ibook 3g and it will not play the dvd's and the videos on youtube keep freezing and won't hardly play. What can we do to fix this problem?


Unless it is a SE (special edition) one, it will not play dvds - it only has a cd drive. Tangerine and Blueberry models do not have dvd drives. Indigo and Key Lime models do. there are 2 different graphite models - one does and one doesnt. And youtube videos never play well on clamshells - they weren't designed for internet video. However youtube mobile (m.youtube.com) does work on the clamshell i've found. Good luck!

Will the Microsoft Lifecam vx-5000 work with iBook apple?


The lifecam is compatible with 10.4 and 10.5. Your clamshell may be able to run 10.4 but it would need Firewire and 256mb of ram along with 15gb of free HD space. Then you'll need to get the CD or DVD.

It will get to main screen and freeze up


Boot it from the installation DVD. Run a few utilities. If it freezes up, you have a hardware problem. If it doesn't freeze up, you most probably have damaged the OS, and should reload the OS using "archive and install" to preserve your user files. Since this is a Clamshell, I should mention that these are the recovery options for OS ; OS 9 requires a different approach.

My clamshell ibook shows signal but won't load sites...


Try with Safari or Firefox. If still no pages loading then your Airport is not connecting to the Internet. If you are using a cable modem contact your ISP for assistance.

Can not install the stylus epson c80 on my ibook clamshell os9.0


You can download GutenPrint. It contains drivers for all of the printers not installed with OS X. This may provide a driver for your Stylus printer. Just so you know, the Epson Stylus printers are quite finicky and STILL frequently have problems with driver installation on even the newest machines.

Clamshell Ibook restore cd's I need everything


The clamshell ibooks came with either OS 8.6 or OS 9 on them. If you are just looking to start over from scratch, then you can use a standard OS 9 CD and have them do a complete re-install. I say this without knowing the nature of the problems they are having.

We have an older ibook **** shell computer which freezes in start up.we do not own a recovery cd or a operating system cd. any clue what to do or purchase to fix it?


I would first try to reboot the PRAM.
The Perameter ram stores data for your start up and something there might be the culperate.
TO do this hold down the shift and "P" and "R" keys as you hard boot it by holding down the power button for 10 seconds. Release the power button and hold those above keys (shift, P, R ) down until you hear four chimes. Then let them go. It should boot fine then. If it still freezes, write me back.

IBook Clamshell Startup problem after Upgrade


Given that the "power ring" no longer lights up, I am wondering if the DC-in board is mis-connected in some way. No light = no power going to logic board, and no power going to charge the battery.

An alternative test would be to borrow a charged battery from another clamshell. If the machine boots, you know that there's something askew with the DC-in board.

BTW, there are excellent take-apart guides for iBooks at iFixit.com
