    OK if you have one of the original macbooks then follow this guide here:


    Choose the macbook that you have.

    Then on the following page click on MEMORY

    You need to remove the memory card(s) and reseat them.

    Make sure you use the CORRECT size screwdriver or else you'll strip the screws, it's really easy to do and it's a pain to fix it if you do afterwards. Trust me, I know. ;)

    Let me know if this works.

    If it doesn't you'll have to have an Apple Tech diagnose the problem.

    Best of luck!

Stunt copter won't sync

I presume you have lights & sound on the controller when you turn it on - fourteen quick beeps and then a different toned fifteenth beep. The screen lights (blue). Insert the battery (lettering facing up toward the helo fuselage unitl it's seated all the way - an LED inside the fuselage, visible from behind, quick flashes and then begins a slower blinking.

Once the helo battery is inserted, turn on the controller, which starts the aforementioned beeping. On the last controller beep the helo's LED will stay lighted, indicating the helo & controller are synched.

I had a problem making sure the battery was inserted all the way into the helicopter. You'll know it's inserted properly when the LED inside the helo flashes.

Will not boot. seems the pc is activating but screen remains blank

It should beep once when you turn it on (unless it's a laptop). If it beeps a few times that's a trouble code that you can look up at the manufactures site. But, if it seems to be running okay, just no display: Maybe your monitor is dead/unplugged/shut-off. Try another monitor, if that fails, try another video card.

That is just generic troubleshooting, it could be something specific to the model. Start pulling parts out one at a time and see if it boots, my money is on your video card or monitor though.

In the future it helps us to know the model, when it stopped working, is it a PC or a laptop, what lights flash, etc.. More details better answers.

Mac book will not turn on.

A flashing folder at startup means that the Mac doesn't recognize your system. This can be either a hardware or software problem. The hardware problem would be the hard drive, and the software the OS.
So these are the steps you should proceed: 1) Check your hard disk by using your install DVD (press the c key at startup), choose your language, go to the utilities menu and hit Disk utility. go to SOS tab and select your hard drive on the left. Click "repair volume" and check what happens.
2) reboot, if it does not recognize the system again, reinstall it using the "archive-install" option

Won't turn on

Did you try to disconnect the battery and connect you mac book to the charger? If it turns on with the power connected and without the battery, probably your battery is broken.

Beep will load is running

This sounds like the same problem I had. It turned out to be a loose solder joint on the potentiometer for the water level. A few minutes with a soldering iron and it was fixed. I'm not an appliance tech but as near as I can tell, any input from any button or knob will turn the machine on and/or create a beep. Therefore, a loose connection at various places on this board could cause the same problem. I have also read about a lot of control board problems with various kenmore appliances. I suspect many of them may have a similar cause. Hope this helps.

My g4 adapter light is orange when I plug it into the computer.

Hey, if this problem still exist for you... try this.
Hold down the power button and see if the computer responds.  If you hear a loud beep sound, that's good. Release the power button... The computer should come on.
Of course if that doesn't work.  Try checking to see if the battery has any charge by pressing the button on the bottom of the batter.  Use those light sensors to determine the charge level of the batter. If there is just one light flashing, the battery is not charged.  Give it some time to see if it changes.
You can also, just remove the battery, plug in the power cord again, and then try to power on the computer. 
Let me know if any of this helps.(if its not too late)  = |
Anywho, have a great day!
