Insert your Mac OS disc, restart your computer while holding down the C key. This will launch your computer on the disc system instead of your hard drive.
From the menu select Disk Utilities.
Repair permissions and repair hard drive in your computer..
Restart... you should be back up and running.

Cant install so 10.2 onto powerbook g4.

Remove both RAM chips and re-insert, because sometimes they come loose. Now give it a shot old chap. Also, your RAM chips may have died, so insert new ones and give it a shot.

Don't install Panther 10.2, because that operating system (OS) is too old. The PowerBook runs best with the Tiger 10.4 OS. You need to install a retail version disc with black label instead of a gray label disc, because those discs are computer specific to certain models only.

Try different DVDs and then try different CDs. If it spits out all of them, then its time for a new optical drive.

Display splits on startup on Powerbook G4 Ti 867MHz on OS 10.2.8

From your description, I suspect your graphic processor has gone bad. The symptoms you describe are not consistent with a simple video cable problem or LCD panel fault. The graphic processor is integral with the logic board, and the cost of this repair probably exceeds the residual value of a TiBook.
Just to make sure, hook an external monitor or TV screen onto your machine with the appropriate display adapter (presuming you still have the one that was shipped with your laptop). If you get the same fractured image on both screens, the graphic processsor is the culprit.

Powerbook G4 Titanium..sticking on any movement

1. Go to Support on, search memory upgrades for your model and follow instructions for inserting the ram modules correctly. These MUST be properly seated and locked or strange intermittent bad stuff will happen.
2. At same time note make and type of memory from label, and double check that it is the correct memory from a high end maker. Macs do not like low-life sketchy memory.
3. Cables that go through the hinges are very fragile and subject to damage as well as wear and tear. Limit opening and closing display, partial or full. Titanium's have well-known hinge problems - do not let them get loose, and Google solutions if they do.
4. Find a nearby Apple store and make an appointment at the Genius Bar. It won't cost anything for a simple diagnosis or repair, and they are VERY helpful as long as you are too.
5. Parts:, and Google many others some with specific repair instructions on-line. I have a spare near new display cable for Titanium's, but replacing this part is extremely difficult for even most experts.
