Try to do a custom install and skip that application, if it works then it was that app. If it still gives you a issue, then you need to go to the utilities on the cd and check the HD to make sure there are not bad sectors.

As I can install a samsung ML1640 printer on a G3 iBook?


you have to go to the printer manufacturer to get drivers for the computer. The os comes with drivers for different printers but if your printer was manufactured after the OS you are using wa made it will not be inherent to it.

One thing to do is to connect the printer to the computer and reinstall the os with the system disk. Sometimes this will fix it. Another way to do this is to run software update from the apple drop down menu to see if there are any updates to your current os. That machine should run mac os x 10.4 if you have enough ram in it. Ram for that machine is very cheap.

Hi there,
Congratulations on your new computer! What you need to do is reinstall the operating system, after wiping the computer:
  1. Turn the Mac on and insert the restoration disk that came with it (If you don't have one then you'll need to get one, try ebay or amazon, or an Apple store).
  2. Turn the Mac off with the disk still in
  3. Re-boot it, holding down the C key. This will boot up from the CD, and hopefully you'll be able to re-install Mac OS X, which will give you a working, clean machine.
When you get to step 3, you should have a menu bar at the top. Select Utilities -> Disk Utility. Select the computer's hard drive, and 'Erase'. Call the new partition whatever you like, but make sure it uses Mac OS Journaled Extended file system. Follow the instructions and you'll have a machine like new!
If you don't already have an install disk, watch out - you can only install Mac OS up to Mac OS 10.5 on your iBook. Don't buy a 10.6 (Snow leopard) disk, as it won't install!
Hope that helped, good luck!

I cant get my ibook g4 to run it turns on with blinking folder


Blinking ? mark folder means that your OS can't be found. Take out your RAM underneath the keyboard and re-insert and try again. Nothing? Install a different new RAM chip and try again. Nothing? Install your disc 1 install disc, power down, wait a few seconds, now press the power button to turn on, now press and hold the option button, until your disc 1 shows up, select it, and bring your pointer to the right arrow on the screen and press enter. Now your booting from the disc 1. Go to disc utility folder at the top of the screen and select your hard drive and then select repair disc permissions. Then shut down and reboot when finished. Nothing? Your hard drive is fu.k.d-Try re-installing the OS. Nothing? Your hard drive is really fu.k.d-You need a new hard drive. Installing a new hard drive in the iBook is a *****. You may want to pay someone to install a hard drive or you can just get a new laptop.

On start-up, (from HD or CD) I get the Apple, then "unable to fin


This is the message you see when a version of OS X has been installed on a Mac that needs a later version of OS X at minimum, or when the custom gray install disc for one model of Mac has been used to initialize another model of Mac.
You posted this under "iBook G4," and the platform in the error messages says "PowerBook." Provided you posted in the right place, that confirms the above diagnosis.
Initialize your iBook with the proper gray disc, or a retail OS X installation disc, and it will operate properly.

Just repaired g3 ibook. Hard drive needs formatting, as it has xp loaded on it. Ibook starts up, boot tone, proceeds to load, then screen has a file in the center of screen with the osx finder square face...


With the OS X Installer CD in the drive, try booting your mac and holding down the option key immediately after you hear the start up chime. This will (hopefully) load a firmware boot loader that will show available start up discs. Hopefully the OSX installer will show up as CD Icon. Select the Icon with your mouse or keyboard and press enter to start up with the Installer CD. From the installer you should be able to erase and format the drive as Mac OS Extended before installing OS X.


If the computer still won't boot from the CD double check that it is a retail OS X installer CD. If your CD has "software restore" or "ibook restore" or any other varient of restore written on the label; or if it names a particular model such as "ibook install" or "imac install" it is not a retail copy and may not be a bootable disc. A retail copy will only name the version of the operating system followed by the word install written on it's label and usually have a brief instruction on booting from the CD by holding the C key at startup.


Hope this helps, let me know what happens.

Replaced HD on ibook Clamshell, now can't boot


The Clamshell iBook 366 doesn't officially support Tiger, but can usually be installed using 'XPostFacto'. (You can get it here http://eshop.macsales.com/OSXCenter/XPostFacto/
It's open source software but you still might find some aspects of Tiger don't work.

You may have a RAM problem.One of the most serious problems that can afflict your Mac is "bad memory" -- the common term for a defective RAM chip.
Apple provides Apple Hardware Test with every new Mac -- it's either on the Mac OS X Install/Restore disc, or on a separate Hardware Test disc.

Here are the instruction on how to run the Apple Hardware Test CD:
