On an Apple system, this is an indication that it thinks there is little or no battery left and goes to sleep to protect data loss. Your battery might be going bad (showing a full charge, but lasting for only a few minutes) or there may be a problem with your power supply.

My ibook stays on the white screen but the apple and the spinning thing doesnt show up but i hear the chimes and i am trying to download my new os x software please help me get it to work


You may have a bad hard drive. The "chime" means that the iBook was able to power on, and the white screen means that it foung the efi or firmware, but the fact that it will not go to the apple or the spinning gear means that it cannot detect an operating system on a hard disk.

Do you have the OSX CD? Put the CD in your ibook, power it on, and hold down the "C" key. This will allow you to boot to the CD. if the hard drive is still good, then it will allow you to install, if not then it will tell you there are no hard disks available. Hope this helps.

I have a cd stuck in my laptop computer. It's a iBook G4. The cd tray doesn't come out. there is a mechanism that helps to push the cd out. I dont know the best way to get it out. Please help!! E


Option 1:
If you restart the computer and just after it restarts if you hold down the eject key on the keyboard it should eject the disc, if not I would check to see if there is a tiny hole on the disc drive that you can stick a paper clip in - not sure if the ibook will have it but worth while checking.

Option 2:
1. Restart the computer.
2. Immediately after the startup sound, press and hold the key
combination Command-Option-O-F.
Note: The Command key has the Apple icon on it.
3. Release the keys when you see a white screen that says "Welcome to
Open Firmware."
4. At the prompt, type: eject cd
5. Press Return, then wait a few seconds. The disc drive should eject any disc that is present, and "ok" appears behind your command when the
action is complete.
6. Type: mac-boot
7. Press Return.

What is the command to boot from cd on a g4 laptop on startup c button wont make it boot from cd then drops to a shell where i can type things what do i type in the shell to go to the cd drive the shell...


Try starting the machine from the hard drive normally. Put the CD in the drive. Wait until the machine starts up completely. Then,

1. Click the Apple menu (top, right corner of the screen).
2. Click "System Preferences"
3. Click "Startup Disk"
4. Click the CD icon.
5. Click the Restart button in that window. Your Mac will ask you if you are sure you want to restart. Click Restart. It should boot from your CD

Good luck! Please let us know if this helps you solve the problem.

Stuck dvd


Where your cd drive is there is a small hole which you can insert a straightened paper clip into and this should eject the dvd. Hope this helps.

I am having trouble reinstalling OS on an ibook g4 I got it to run trough some of the setup but it errored out. when tried again I am no longer able to boot off of cd drive


If you are not able to boot off the cd rom then please just goto BIOS setup of your system and simply change Boot order ( or priorities) to cd rom. and then you will be able to boot properly. Don't panic it will get installed smoothly then.

If this solution was helpful to you then please rate 100% (or FIXYA) for this solution, otherwise don't rate at all. It was my pleasure helping you.

Freezing is a HD problem. Do you hear clicking sometimes? Sometimes on boot up is there a foler with a questionmark in it? I would get your hard drive looked at, this is the reason disc utility fails. Your hard drive has a hiccup.

No luck


Probably the dvd drive is damaged (boot the computer with a bootable cd and see if it works, if not, change the drive), or it might have weak connection in it's slot, remove it and reinsert it in the laptop, see if it works.
