Re: apple g4 aluminium

What sound card are you using? It has to be external for you to switch it. When a computer is dropped, the hard drive and logicboard are under severe danger. The drive is constantly spinning anywhere between 4200 and 10k rpms. If the logicboard endures any shock there could be endless possibilities to failures in addition to them being intermitten. Can you specify which G4 you have, in processor speed and machine/display size? And I take it when you mean " no sound", you also mean no Apple start-up chime when you boot the machine?

My 0,p,;, and ? keys doesnt work can you help me

the G4 is very outdated, so replacing it is cheaper than repairing. Sounds like the keyboard is bad and the network card might not be in great shape.

You may need to open it up again and remove first the airport card and turn it back on and if that boot your computer there's a possibility that your airport is causing the problem and the airport may be loose and touching some other parts on it.

2006 powerbook G4. my screen will get glitchy and i can see multi color squares and lines randomly on the screen. when i move a window the pixels chase and outline my movements. any ideas?

sounds like the video card is dying. I was able to hold off on one dying by downloading a fan controller that kept the machine cooler, but with the age of the G4, it's likely damaged. Consider replacing or the fan controller.

My powerbook g4 no longer recognize my builted in airport, have no airport now. The only way to make my g4 work in hook an either net cable to my g4 into my router. Makes my laptop very stationary, what...

What I would suggest is reseating the airport card as it may be the card has come loose or the cable is not connected properly. The following support page on the apple website will tell you how to do it.

Failing that you will probably have to buy an new airport card or a wireless usb adaptor. You should be able to pick one up from ebay fairly cheaply.

Hope this helps.

Ibook g4 internal mic not working 2006 model

Visit the System Preferences / Sound panel, in the Input section, and make sure the internal mike is chosen for the sound input function. If you have another choice, change it away from the mike, then change it back. If this doesn't fix your problem, you may need a hardware repair.
