    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!

My notebook doesn`t come on when I turn on the power switch.

Check the battery by pushing the button on the bottom, if it shows one light flashing or no lights then the battery is discharged. The problem may be with the ac adapter. Many of these connectors fail after a while and they don't charge the system, which means when the battery dies, there is no more turning on.

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.

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!

Ibook G 4/12.1/1.33/5aptx.....will not start

Some computer react this way when the logic board goes bad or have a defect in it.  
First, Try this:  
Remove the battery.  Plug back in the power cord, then press and hold down the power button til you hear a loud beep sound. then release it.  If the computer starts back up... Then you should be okay.
If not, it may has something to do with the logic board.
Let me know if the above works... We may can try some other things if not.
