My ibook g3 gives me this when i boot it up(just got it from eBay) and the cd drive doesn't open up


Probably last owner had experiment with installing windows on iBook something that apple does not support until now. You can solve this by buying a genuine copy of macintosh (should not be more than 10-20 bucks on ebay for this is a kinda old version not sure which one though) and reinstall it basically from the begining.

System reboot


Depending on what bios it has it may not show the cd drive. All you can do is set it to auto or if it has the option to cd or atapi. Then set the boot order so that the cd is looked at before the hard drive and you should then boot off of the cd.

A blue screen just comes and stays on, what can I do? Darryl. I have a 12 inch ibook g4


Hi,
Bsod, 2 possibilities, hardware defect, and software problem,So check software.

Re-boot, keep tapping F8 while booting, enter black screen area, choose last known good, top 1

or, reboot again, F8 again, black screen, choose safe mode this time,

if/when booted, system restore, go back in time, re-boot.

or, Operating system disc in drive, reboot, when it says boot from disc, hit return, repair the o/s with the disc, (( care needed not to re-install ))

let it finish
reboot
test

I hope this helps
Regards

Try borrowing a compatible HDD instead of buying a third one for testing and check if the same error exists. Try also using an external DVD drive to see if your internal CD-ROM is defective. Try also using another Windows XP CD installer. You can also use other OS installation CD to check it. Otherwise, there is something wrong with your lappy's motherboard due to tear and wear, heat, vibration, misuse and shock.

Fujitsu lap top cant find cd rom so i cant load softwear


Go check your BIOS to make sure the cd rom drive is recognized by the system first, as if it is not, you will not be able to use it.
If the cd drive is removable, try removing it and reinstalling it first.
If the drive is recognized press the F12 key to get into the boot selection and choose CD Boot.
I hope this helps.
Good Luck.

Cd rom not working


Let’s determine if your CD-ROM drive or your Operating System Software ( ie...Windows XP) is the problem.
You will need a bootable CD, you can use your “Dell Resource” CD or any other bootable CD disk.
Power on the laptop and tap the F12 key to get to the “Boot Selection Menu”. Insert the DELL “Resource CD” into the CD-ROM drive. Select “Boot from CD/DVD drive” from the selection menu.
If the laptop boots from the CD drive then you Operating System Software is the problem.

If the laptop won’t boot from CD then your CD-ROM is defective and needs to be replaced.

Laptop froze


Bad News, serious problem!

Either Operating System is corrupt or Hard Drive defective. First Try REinstalling the Factory Recovery Disk Bios. Open CD rom Trey Place Factory System REstore disk. Turn on Computer and you should see "bood from CD, press any key" . Do so and follow instructions. Remeber to DELETE SECTORS when asked and when prompted select NSFS format. Follow instructions , use common sense and it should work.

If the HD is Defective, it will stop loading and indicate it cannot find HD in an error message.

One other thing. IF when you insert the disk and it boots up and does not go into the restore mode look on bottom of screen for BOOT ORDER and select CD ROM as the first boot. If you dont see that then you have to go into the BIOS and reset BOOT ORDER TO CD ROM FIRST. To get into Bias try tapping down f-2 key as its booting. If that dont work repeat with f-10, f 12 and then Delete button if all else fails. Find BOOT ORDER in BIAs and follow instructions on making CD ROM the first boot device. Then Save and Exit. Reinsert Restore disk and wait until you get the boot from cd rom prompt (process upove).

Unfortunately all data will be lost but computer will work fine.

If the drive is defective it has to be replaced. Write me again if that is the case if you want to do that yourself.

Good Luck

Cheers !
