Re: i book

Try these in no particular order (except last 3) try command-option power this puts p-books to sleep (may trigger it to wake) (it could be asleep) Remove your battery and wait 5-10 mins then try to start up with battery in Remove your battery and wait 5-10 mins then try to start up with battery removed To zap PRAM On startup hold down the cmd, option, p and r buttons Hold till you hear boot up sound To zap NV RAM On startup hold down the cmd, option, n and v buttons Hold till you hear boot up sound To reset Power Manager On startup hold down the shift, fn, ctrl and power buttons Hold till you hear boot up sound To reset the screen on a powerbook: On startup hold down the r button - To force internal Hard drive to be startup disk On startup hold down the r button - until boot Disable extensions: Try power up-reboot with shift key down Last but not least try to startup with original MAC system startup CD If all else fails try to get to an Apple Store...unless it's a real hardware problem (fried circuits/damage they'll fix it for free!) Pray - believe it or not... it worked for me when I got down on my knees and prayed. Hope this helps also from Fixya By  horthette Rank: Master Rating: 74%, 10 votes Apple is advising all owners of MacBooks or MacBook Pros bought after February 2006 to download a software update that will help fix some battery issues. The update, available through Software Update in the Apple menu or here on Apple's site, was released to correct some battery performance problems, such as shorter than usual battery life or problems charging the battery, according to a Web page on the support section of Apple's site. But if that fix doesn't work, notebook users should contact Apple to have their battery replaced if they notice the following symptoms, cut and pasted from Apple's support document: * Battery is not recognized causing an "X" to appear in the battery icon in the Finder menu bar. * Battery will not charge when computer is plugged into AC power. * Battery exhibits low charge capacity/runtime when using a fully charged battery with a battery cycle count (as shown in System Profiler) of less than 300. * Battery pack is visibly deformed. Apple says these problems aren't safety issues, just performance-related, a relief for those who remember the massive battery recall of last summer. Apple had to recall 1.8 million batteries manufactured by Sony as part of a larger recall that affected just about everyone in the PC industry.

Re: i book

This is a very broad question so I'll cover as many answers as I can think of: 1) Force quit frozen applications (Apple-Option + Escape) 2) Force shut down (hold power button for 5 seconds until it turns off) 3) Force restart (Apple-Option + Power Button)

Find books down loaded

Hello there,

If you have downloaded it from iTunes, you should be able to locate it in iBooks.

To open iBooks simply enter "iBooks" in the launchpad search bar. You now should log in with your app id which you used to download the book from iTunes.

If you downloaded the Book from another web page then you should be able to locate it in your Downloads folder.

To locate the folder just open finder and find "Downloads" in the left column.

Hope this is useful.

I try to unlock my i book with the code but my screen wont turn black

Thank you for contacting Fixya Support, I am glad to assist you.

I am not sure exactly what you mean when you mention the screen "won't turn black" after you try to unlock your iBook.

So to at least point you in the right direction, if you are unable to access the desktop within your iBook, then click the link I have provided below, in order to reset the user administrator password for your iBook:
Resetting Administrator Password in Mac OS X

Try this procedure, but keep in mind, in order to perform this process, make sure you have your Mac OS X restore or Mac OS X installation disk.

Let us know if this helps you gain access back into your iBook desktop, if this is what the issue is, based on your initial question.

While attempting to watch videos the voice is ok but the video is slow apple I book laptop

This is a problem with all iBook G3s. The CPU and graphics processor just aren't fast enough to process video well, especially online videos. In my iBook I have upgraded many of the components, but it still doesn't play videos well.

When watching videos you can try to close all other programs, turn off the wireless internet connection (if you have one), and reduce the screens resolution. Doing this will reduce the amount of information the computer has to process so that it can focus more on processing the video.

Try to do a custom install and skip that application, if it works then it was that app. If it still gives you a issue, then you need to go to the utilities on the cd and check the HD to make sure there are not bad sectors.
