Question about Apple PowerBook G4 Mac Notebook
I have g4 apple, computer turns boots up but does not get past the little spinning symbol. could it be batter for memory?
Its a hard drive issue and you'll need to reformat the hard drive of your apple g4 by connecting this to another computer using a firewire. Find another computer that you can use and an external hard-drive. Connect the two computers with a Firewire Cable.
Start up the working computer with the external hard-drive connected to it. Then press and hold down the 'T' key on the non-working computer. This will start you up in Firewire mode and allow you access to the harddrive from the other computer. Copy the files you need to the hard-drive. After this is done format the faulty apple's hard drive and then after the formatting is done you'll need to install mac os on your apple g4.
Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.
