The clamshell ibooks came with either OS 8.6 or OS 9 on them. If you are just looking to start over from scratch, then you can use a standard OS 9 CD and have them do a complete re-install. I say this without knowing the nature of the problems they are having.

Ibook g3 clamshell 2453


It sounds like your start up files are either missing or corrupt. You need to reboot with your system disk in the cd rom (hold down the "C" key as you restart) or do a fresh install of an OS.

Will the Microsoft Lifecam vx-5000 work with iBook apple?


The lifecam is compatible with 10.4 and 10.5. Your clamshell may be able to run 10.4 but it would need Firewire and 256mb of ram along with 15gb of free HD space. Then you'll need to get the CD or DVD.

I have a ibook g3 clamshell laptop. I am trying


The G3 iMac clamshell speaks 802.11b wireless signal only. If your router is an 802.11n router, this symptom is known to occur, especially if you have any level of encryption (WEP, WPA, WPA2) on your router signal. Try temporarily turning the encryption off on your router and disabling N mode (set to G mode only) and see if this solves your problem. If so, obviously you don't want to leave your router unencrypted, but you may have to leave it set to G mode as long as you want your clamshell to be able to access it.

Hi i have a ibook g3 { i just bought it from a friend} i can i restore to a factory settings without a trouble


To restore an iBook G3 to factory settings you need the installation CDs that came with the iBook. Ask your friend to find them. Sometimes you can purchase replacement sets on eBay, but they have to be for your exact model. Please realize that the original installation CDs that came with this iBook will contain OS 9, not OS X, so I question whether you really want to restore this machine "to factory settings." What you may choose to do instead is a "clean install" from a more recent retail OS X CD or DVD.

My clamshell ibook shows signal but won't load sites...


Try with Safari or Firefox. If still no pages loading then your Airport is not connecting to the Internet. If you are using a cable modem contact your ISP for assistance.

IBook Clamshell Startup problem after Upgrade


Given that the "power ring" no longer lights up, I am wondering if the DC-in board is mis-connected in some way. No light = no power going to logic board, and no power going to charge the battery.

An alternative test would be to borrow a charged battery from another clamshell. If the machine boots, you know that there's something askew with the DC-in board.

BTW, there are excellent take-apart guides for iBooks at iFixit.com
