My Powerbook G4 freezes up frequently on my IM@yahoo.  Is this something wrong with the laptop or the site?  I have to force quit to get out of it.

Are you referring to Yahoo messenger? or do you use it through your internet browser, if so what is the browser and what version. You may need to use a different version of the software.
Thank you,

My powerbook g4 won't reboot. It freezes at the grey screen with the apple and won't let me log on .


Power the machine down. Press the power button, then immediately press and continue to hold the shift key. This will perform a "safe boot," skipping any of the boot-time software you may have added to your machine. If it still fails to boot, more involved diagnostics are required.

Powerbook G4 12" no video


Try this courtesy of your manufacturer
  1. If the computer is on, turn it off.
  2. Reset the power manager by simultaneously pressing and then releasing Shift-Control-Option-Power on the keyboard. Do not press the fn (Function) key while using this combination of keystrokes.
  3. Wait 5 seconds.
  4. Press the Power button to restart the computer.
If that doesnt work lemme know

Restore CD


You don't need a "restore" cd.

You can just use any copy of Tiger.

Borrow one!

DVD player skips audio and/or frames


PowerBook G4 is at least a five-year-old machine at this point. A DVD drive can **** in lots of dust in five years. Try hooking up to an external DVD drive. If it plays the same discs with no problem, you need a cleaning or replacement. Frankly, an external DVD drive is cheaper than replacing your internal drive.
