Question about Apple iBook G3 Mac Notebook
How to fix my ibook g3, the screen only has a ? when I turn the computer on. It doesn't do anything at all.
This could potentially be a sign of a failing hard drive. Easiest way to find out would be to find your original installation disks, and inserting Disk 1 into the computer, and rebooting while holding down the C key on your keyboard to boot to the disk (If you have your Apple Hardware Test CD, use this instead, and rather than holding the C key, hold the option key when turning it on and tell the corresponding boot selection menu to boot to the hardware test). If you use the OS disks, look in your menus for a program called Disk Utility, and try to look up information on the hard drive to see if there's any obvious signs of it failing. If not, then I would recommend trying to do an archive and install of your operating system (this will keep your personal files and folders intact), to see if this alleviates the issue. If not, then chances are good that your hard drive will need to be replaced.
