Restart with Mac OS disc inserted, while holding down the C key to restart from the OS on the disc.
Then launch disc utilties program and repair the permissions on your hard drive...
Restart... did it get you up to your desktop?

Cant find the disc on my powerbook g4


STart up your G4 using the OS disc for leopard, but instead of reinstalling the system, go to the menu at the top of the screen and Launch Disk Utility.
You may need to remount your hard drive. The disk utitliy can do this for you. Then it should appear in the disk utillity window. Then you should be able to install the OS and away you go!

Hi ihave apple power book g4 i want reboot


login in single user mode as below:

Starting up in single-user or verbose mode
    1. Shut down the computer if it is on.
    2. Press the power button to start the computer.
    3. Immediately press and hold the Command (Apple) key and one of the following:
    • the "s" key for single-user mode. (Command-S)
    • the "v" key for verbose mode. (Command-V)
You have successfully entered single-user or verbose mode when you see white text appear on the screen.

Once you are in the Single user mode type the following:

fsck -fy <then press enter>

If this command returns with an error or reports that is found an error but fixed it then run the command again and repeat until the drive checks good.

Once you are done with the repair or feel satisfied, type 'reboot' and press enter.

My powerbook G4 will not startup... All that appears on the screen when I try to turn on my computer is a tiny folder with a question mark on it. The mouse pad is nonresponsive.


Computer cannot find operating system files. Start up from Install Disk or Utility disk and re-install system. Hold down C key while starting from disk.

When I start up my G4 I doesn't get past the white logo screen with the circular icon spinning. Have removed battery and depressed start up button until a loud beep occurs but still nothing


I had a problem with my hard discs. That's where I got, but my screen froze after a few minutes. try pressing apple + s after the chime. See if you can search around there. Also, try holding the shift key when you hear the chime, or when booting if you don't normally hear the chime, and hold it 'till you see the apple logo.

Hello
It looks like you have a hardware related problem. have you tried anything since? I would guess that the hard drive is dead. Tell me if I'm wrong!

Powerbook g4 going to white screen only!!


Do you have any external harddrive attached to it? If so, remove it before restarting. Try to start it up in safe mode by holding the Shift button down at startup: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1455

try it without the new ram and see if the problems go away- might just be incompatable ram.
