I cant get my apple powerbook g4 to bootup or install the osx correctly


does it boot from cdrom? if it doesn't i would assume your logic board is broken and somebody has to open the ibook and replace the part. If you want to pay to have somebody do it for you there is a third party iBook Repair Service. However, if you want to do it yourself, the part is available on ebay. Here's an iBook Repair guide. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you.

My apple ibook G4 cant boot operating system. Whenever i on it, it will only display a folder with question mark on it. Pls what can i do. I am a nigerian.


The folder is a sign that there's a problem with the system software. Reinstalling the system software should allow your iBook G4 to boot up.

My G4 Notebook stopped recognizing the cdrom


The problem could be that the wiring has gone bad or that your cd-rom has completely been fried. The only way to fix this problem is to check wiring and if it is not that than buy a external cd rom drive.

IBook G4 will not come on


You should be able to sucessfully boot from the original installation CD. If not, there is another problem with the computer. The iBook G4's are known to have logic board problems, which could very well be causing this problem. The logic board problem is very costly to fix. Over $300. There are solutions that you can do yourself online. I did this on my iBook and it continued working. Let me know and I'll send you a link to repair this yourself.

I am having trouble reinstalling OS on an ibook g4 I got it to run trough some of the setup but it errored out. when tried again I am no longer able to boot off of cd drive


If you are not able to boot off the cd rom then please just goto BIOS setup of your system and simply change Boot order ( or priorities) to cd rom. and then you will be able to boot properly. Don't panic it will get installed smoothly then.

If this solution was helpful to you then please rate 100% (or FIXYA) for this solution, otherwise don't rate at all. It was my pleasure helping you.

Ibook g4 freez


Freezing is a HD problem. Do you hear clicking sometimes? Sometimes on boot up is there a foler with a questionmark in it? I would get your hard drive looked at, this is the reason disc utility fails. Your hard drive has a hiccup.

No luck


Probably the dvd drive is damaged (boot the computer with a bootable cd and see if it works, if not, change the drive), or it might have weak connection in it's slot, remove it and reinsert it in the laptop, see if it works.
