I had to read your last post to get some idea as to what was going on. This is a solution sort of but you need to ask what yourself what do you mean by sync? Do you want the contents of both address books to be the same but not update when you make a change on one or the other. Or do you want your address books to update each other when you make a change in either one. That is something you have to decide. For the first option you can open your address book from the dock and select all of your contacts. Then you want to go to the file menu and chose export and then chose v card. This option will place a card for each contact in a folder of your choice. This option is the best if you are moving info to a windows pc as well.

The second option is easier but has two choices for you two pick. if you want both of your address books to be the same at all times you need to connect your address book to an in between system. there are two you can choose from, one is mobile me an apple product which does more than just adress book sync but comes with a fee. there is also a site called plaxo.com which also does address book and calendar sync for a mac only.

I hope that helps fix your issue

Display won't turn back on


You may need to open it up again and remove first the airport card and turn it back on and if that boot your computer there's a possibility that your airport is causing the problem and the airport may be loose and touching some other parts on it.

Hope that helps...........

G4 network settings


This is often a problem with Airport cards becoming defective over time. You mention that you have tried with an ethernet connection as well. When trying, make sure you disable your wireless connection.
In addition, make sure that you are not using a static IP address or, if one is required, that you try assigning a different IP outside of your DHCP scope as you can be experiencing IP address conflicts.

What I would suggest is reseating the airport card as it may be the card has come loose or the cable is not connected properly. The following support page on the apple website will tell you how to do it.

Failing that you will probably have to buy an new airport card or a wireless usb adaptor. You should be able to pick one up from ebay fairly cheaply.

Hope this helps.

Will not connect to internet via airport


Start from scratch. Go back to your main computer and create a USB key and try that way.

Wondering, is your MAc setup for wireless?

Another thought, i had the same issue connecting my Mac to my parents wireless. I used the installation disc and that solved that.

You could try changing the security. Some of the older laptops have trouble with the new WPA2 security. Use WEP and you should be OK if this is the problem. Good luck TT
