Question about Apple iBook G4 Mac Notebook
This is a very open question, which can be open to many interpretations. but if you are concerned that your HD is a goner, the easiest way to find out is by listening to your drive's "noises." If you hear that the drive is make "repetitive" noises as if it almost sounds that it's "stuck" trying to read something. Then, it will most likely be your HD. There is software that can read your HD and tell you how the partitions and physical health of your HD are doing. But if you are no wiz at this, then "noises" may be your best guide. Since, you will most likely notice that your HD isn't making its usual "noise.s" The other side of the coin is... have you been messing with your mac's language? did you install something that you didn't even know what it was? (but you did anyways) did you accidently click on something, that was actually important? or is there something on your dvd/cd slot? sometimes if you leave a cd/dvd in the slot it may prevent mac from starting properly or just slowing the start up to a crawl. I'm not so sure about this one, but Apple recently released an update for airport. try to install it, but then again if you can't even start up... If i was on your position, and I kept a good track of what I do with my computer, and I knew it was a couple of years old.... I would consider replacing the hard drive. HDs will last a couple of years, but since they have moveable parts.. they have to break at some point.
So there, those are pretty much all the possibilities that you should consider. Hope that helps and good luck
PS that's why is important to always BACK UP your data :-)
