Question about Apple iBook G3 Clamshell (M2453B) Mac Notebook

1 Answer

Firewall I tried to install Brickhouse Firewall, and it became obvious quickly that it was a problem, so I disabled it,  but that didn't work, so I uninstalled it. Nothing. So I repaired disk permissions. It didn't help. I then reinstalled Panther from the disk so that it created a previous system folder.  But the problem is still there. And the problem is that safari won't work, and I can't get internet explorer to come up. I can connect to internet through chat, but the browsers just won't come up. I'm new to mac, having worked mostly with pc's. Have I completely trashed my little ibook?

How do I make my screen size smaller? It just became huge suddenly

You likely zoomed in with control-scroll up/down, try control-scroll to zoom back out. If only the font (not the windows) got larger, reset font view size with apple-0 (command-zero). HTH.

Sound is only active, when headphones are pluged in

Jacob I usually find using a free application called soundsource available at gives you all the available options for input and output options. Once downloaded instal it into your applications folder and open it up, it will appear in your menu bar as a headphone icon. Click on the icon and you will see what options you have. Hope this helps.

Sounds like you have a Windows exclusive CD. It will not work on Mac OS.
If you have a windows install disk, you can install Windows on your Macbook Pro using Boot Camp via the Boot Camp Assistant located in Applications/Utilities. This will require you to restart and select one desired system to boot up in order to use OS X or Windows.

Alternatively you could run Windows and Mac OS simultaneously with a program such as parallels.

I have a ibook g3 clamshell laptop. I am trying

The G3 iMac clamshell speaks 802.11b wireless signal only. If your router is an 802.11n router, this symptom is known to occur, especially if you have any level of encryption (WEP, WPA, WPA2) on your router signal. Try temporarily turning the encryption off on your router and disabling N mode (set to G mode only) and see if this solves your problem. If so, obviously you don't want to leave your router unencrypted, but you may have to leave it set to G mode as long as you want your clamshell to be able to access it.

Hello sir i am not access my orktu site with installed firewall secuirity.. how can access orkut with firewall secuirity. pls gice me some detail about this?

Go to system preferences, security, firewall. Add an exception for your software/site and you should be fine.
Alternatively, turn the firewall off, go to that site and while it's on the browser turn the firewall back on and it will learn the site and automatically add it as an exception.

Cant open orkut,yahoo and face book

Hello, are you using the mac at home or at work? If at work, then there may be rules set by your boss for you not to access these websites. If at home, you should check if your account is set to administrator in the system prefs --> accounts. If not, then turn it on. Check also you firewall settings in the security preferences: disable the firewall for 5 minutes in order to see if the problem comes from that.

Used Mac software update on a G4 portable two weeks ago and now when I use it it hangs. Any way to fix this problem??

Hi, Sorry you are having problems,
Try this:
restart your Mac, and VERY QUICKLY, press the following 4 keys and hold them until the mac does a restart 4 times, it is called resetting the PRAM:
cmd + alt + P + R
then, after 4 startup chimes,
switch to these 4 buttons:
cmd + alt + O + F
you will enter the Open Firmware interface.
type this, exactly:
reset-nvram then hit return
reset-all then hit return
your Mac will restart,
then, VERY QUICKLY, hold down the shift key ( not caps lock, but caps ) and hold it until the mac stats to boot, you see the progress wheel under the grey apple logo, this is called booting with extentions disabled,
the boot up process is much Much longer than usual, it is performing a fsck disk repair
Then, Log in and run disk utilities and repair the permissions, do it over and over again until there are no errors...
Also, verify the disk to see if there are any obvious disk problems.
Then, once that is all done and there are no disk errors, SHUT DOWN your mac and then boot it up normally, .....
See if that helps.....
If it does not help, you are going to have to re-install Mac OS using the archive and install feature.
Good luck.
