Try a safe boot.
OS What is Safe Boot Safe Mode

If that doesn't work, try reseating your memory chips. Or take them out apart from one or replace them. The error sounds like a RAM issue.

SOURCE: Mac book pro. Black screen cannot start but with boot sound

Have you tried connecting an external monitor.

A boot chime means the Mac has passed POST, that the screen remains black initially suggests there is a problem getting image to screen which could mean a bad cable to the LCD or the LCD display its self is having problems.

By connecting to an external display you verify the graphics on the logic board is functional, and it could get you up and running till the display problem is fixed.

Also try powering up and when you hear the chime, hold down the COMMAND+OPTION+P+R keys, and keep holding them till the machine has chimed 3 times, this will reset the 'BIOS' in case there is a glitch there stopping the display from showing up.

since apple drives are formatted in HSF+, a file system that windows cannon read, the chances of it even being bossible to run anything on it from a PC is very very slim.

When I turn on my mac g3 works but the screen stays


Some models of G3 iMac have an external display connector under the rear belly plate. Connect a monitor to this connector. If that monitor shows your desktop, your main CRT is blown. The cost of replacing a CRT in this model is almost certainly more than the residual value of the machine.

During bootup, makes pong sound then goes to white screen, no cursor. Apple g3 14" running 10.4


Its a hardware failure! Usually a hard drive failure.

If you have the software Mac Tools, put that cd into your drive and boot the mac tools software to test the hard drive.

If the hard drive passes, then the software is corrupted and need reinstalltion.

Please write me back to tell me if this helps

Apple Macintosh PowerBook G3 Start-up problem


Your mac doesn't recognize the system folder. Try to find the original boot disks that came with the machine, and see if you can mount the hard disk while booting from the CDs. If you can, I'd backup the data as soon as possible and reinstall the operating system, including a full hard drive reformat. If you can't see the hard drive from the boot cd, another option is to hold down the T key during startup to boot the mac into "target disk mode" - this will allow you to hook up the g3 to another computer as an external hard disk in order to back up the data.

G3 series 1998 notebook


This has always been a tedious problem to solve. The best advice I can give you is to use the law of halves, create an "Extensions Disabled" folder next to the "Extensions" folder. Move half of the extensions into this folder and restart. If that helped put half of them back, if it didn't help, remove half the remaining active ones. By repeating this process you can rather quickly ascertain which is the problem extension with just a few restarts. Say you have 120, then 60, then 30, then 15, then 8, then 4, then 2, then solved. From this example you could deduce the exact culprit from 120 possibles with just eight restarts.

When i turn on my mac ibook g4 the screen gets light then suddenly goes dark and seems to boot up but the screen is black but i can faintly see the desktop icons. What should it do?? thanks


your backligny is probably off. try "increaseing the brightness" on your screen. on macs that should probably be one of the F-keys at the top of your keyboard. I think brighter is F2 or Fn + F2 or somethinglike that. just find the symbol. Do this while your laptop is plugged in to make sure it's not just dimming you screen to save battery.

My iBook is Sad.


I would connect another monitor to it, if you see the same on the monitor, the videocard/GPU is toast, if not , the onboard display is.
