Question about Apple iBook G4 Mac Notebook
I have a Apple g4. I got it from a friend. When I first got it everything was fine. Then the battery died. I got a charger and plugged the computer in. When I connect the plug it sounds like there is a disk spinning or maybe some sort of internal fan but I can't get the screen on not even sure if the computer is actually on. The green light is on on the battery but nothing else seems to be working. I noticed that there is a lock symbol on the left side of the computer with a little slot by it. What is that and is there any way that I can fix this?

When the computer boots does the screen light up? if it does the first thing you need to try is when you turn the computer on is to option boot. That is done by holding the option key while turning the computer on. after it boots you will see the the hard drive listed on the screen it will be a icon, if there you should be able to boot up. If the computer does not boot and your hard drive is still listed you most likely have a logic board aka mother board issue.
