For most situations, a restart is sufficient. If the computer has stopped responding, try these steps, in order, until the computer responds:

  1. Force Quit (Option-Command-Escape)
  2. Restart (Control-Command-Power)
  3. Force Shut Down (press the power button for 10 seconds)
Only perform a PMU reset on the computer if none of the above steps resolved the situation.

I forgot my password to log in to the admin account and i dont have the installation disc either. What another way to reset my password on a iBook G3?


This can be tricky if you are not familiar with the Terminal inside of OSX. If this does not work or you are scared to try it you will need to take this to an Apple Store or purchase another copy of OSX in order to get back into your account.
  • Reboot the computer, after you hear the chime hold down the Apple Key + S.
  • You should now see a black screen where you can enter commands.
  • Enter the following commands in quotes as I have typed them, case does matter do not type the quotes.
  1. "mount -uw /" Return Key
  2. "rm /var/db/.AppleSetupDone" Return Key
  3. "shutdown -h now" Return Key
  • You should have a new admin account now. You can delete the old Admin account at this point.

Describe your cannot start ibook G3Problem it simply does not start, battery is ok and I have tried to take the battery away and back in its place, but nothing what can I do?


Make sure your iBook is plugged in to the wall. Hold down the power button for a few seconds. If that doesn't work, try holding down Command (the Apple key)-Option-P-R (hold all four keys down) and press the power button. Be sure to hold the power button for a few seconds whenever you turn it on.

If that doesn't work, try resetting the Power Management Unit (PMU). This is kind of a "last resort," according to Apple. Don't do this all the time.
  1. Reset the power manager by simultaneously pressing and then releasing Shift-Control-Option-Power on the keyboard. Do not press the fn (Function) key while using this combination of keystrokes.
  2. Wait 5 seconds.
  3. Press the Power button to restart the iBook computer.
If you have a very old iBook, you may have to unplug your iBook, remove the battery, and
  1. Press and release the reset button located above the Audio/Video port on the left side of the iBook (Dual USB) computer by inserting the end of a paper clip into the small hole and gently pressing the switch once.
  2. Wait 5 seconds.
  3. Reconnect the AC power adapter.
  4. Put the battery back in the computer.
  5. Press the Power button to restart the iBook computer.
(If it still doesn't start, do you hear the fans going?)

Good luck! Let us know if these steps solve your issue.

Apple iBook 3g dosent boot hangs on the grey screen


The hard drive has (or is busy) packed up. That is the clicking noise you hear. You may obtain a new drive and install OS X (10) but to find those kind of CD's and hardware drivers may be quite a task

Hi there,
You need to reset the Power Management Unit. The instructions for most models are here:

Choose the one for your model part way down the page. Once reset you should be up and running again.

All the best
