When you say recovery disk I assume you mean the main OS disk. A recovery disk on a mac generally is one you would make as a back up. Depending on the OS you used you would need to get a new one. These you can pick up from eBay pretty cheaply, both OS9 and OSX10.4.

All the best

SOURCE: ibook a1005 won't start .My daughter had a ipod

Ok, there is something you can do to try to fix this. You need to reset the power management circuits - it's very simple, just follow these instructions:

  1. Firstly, try a less drastic approach - hold down the power button for 5-10 seconds. This may succeed in starting up your iBook.
  2. If that doesn't work, you need to reset the power management. Unfortunately, there are plenty of different models of iBook and many have different ways of resetting. You'll need to consult this guide to decide which way will work for your model.
If you need a hand figuring out what type iBook you have, just ask, and I can guide you through figuring it out. Same goes if you don't understand some of the instructions.
Hope that helped, good luck!

SOURCE: when you power on the (apple) or (mac os x) iBook

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!

My Ibook A1005 (2002) model,just wont boot up,I press the power on button,the Apple sign comes up,and it just continues to load with no results!!!!It was working just fine,can anyone assist me


Sorry to hear about the trouble you're having - there are several things that could be causing this.
Firstly, if you have the original disks that came with the computer, try turning it on, loading the restore disk in, and then restarting, holding down the C key. This will boot from the CD, and you'll hopefully be given a set of options. If that works but you don't know what to do next, please let me know.
If that doesn't work, then I'll need some more info. Boot up the iBook, and hold down the Command and V keys - this will boot in verbose mode, which gives you more information about what's happening. See if the computer gets stuck at one particular instruction - then let me know what it is, and I may be able to suggest how to sort out the problem.
Hope that helped, good luck!

If your iBook loads to the Apple logo with a spinning gear beneath it but does not progress past that point, follow the instructions in the following article to attempt to resolve the issue:

A1005 Battery and power supply fine - but not starting


A1005 is an inexact marketing identifier covering pretty much the entire line of G3 iBooks.
Complete failure to start -- unless it is caused by something trivial like a broken start button -- without any startup or error tones, points to basic logic board failure. A machine this stone dead for no apparent reason is unlikely to be revived, and almost certainly not by third-world techs who don't know Macs. It is debatably cost-effective to resuscitate a sub-GHz G3 iBook from such a failure, compared to replacing the unit with another new or used Mac. The drive in the old Mac can be extracted so as to preserve your data, and can be inserted into an external USB or FireWire case to be accessible to a new Mac.
