Your computer is booting into single user mode.

Try to boot from the CD the computer shipped with.

Insert CD and restart the computer holding the "c" key
Your computer should boot.

If so run disk utility from the cd and repair the disk as well as permissions.
If this is successful your computer "should" be repaired. If it still has problems booting, Use your CD to perform a Archive and install which should keep all your personal settings and installed software intact.

LCD Display Problems with Apple 15" PowerBook G4 Aluminum 1.25 GHz Mac Notebook


During boot-up, Apple logo heavily pixelated. After boot-up, display a riot of colors and vertical lines with nothing readable. External monitor works well

I'll appreciate any input.

Powerbook G4 blue screen on start up


Basically some causes of blue screen is the RAM check the RAM remove first maybe it is clogged by the dust. Remove the dust of the memory stick and insert it back to you computer. Usually of you have this problem again you need a recovery disk. Load a windows CD to your CD drive you need to boot and repair the windows.

Replace your Bluetooth device if external, and have the unit serviced if the Bluetooth device is internal.

This happens, and unless your startup disk is locked up and needs some swap space, it's just a matter of a screen whose time has come.

Powerbook won't start up


If you have the original install CD or the OSX CD, boot to CD. To do that you must insert CD, restart PowerBook and hold letter "C" on keyboard while computer is starting, then take the first steps towards installing the OS, when you get to the bar on the top go to Tool>Utilities>Disk Utilities then select the drive a do a disk repair. That may fix the problem and bring your system back to booting normally.

Apple mac g4 laptop wont come on


Kernel panics are not what you have, you have a flashing question mark, it indicates there is a problem with either the hard drive or the operating system on the hard drive.

Kernel panics are different, the unit tries to start and then the unit crashes with a "kernel panic"
