Question about Apple iBook Mac Notebook
I am a IT company in South Africa. Have NEVER worked on MAC's ever.
A customer brought in their iBOOK A1005.
It makes the Chime sound and after a while the monitor shows the APPLE image but nothing after that. It either blacks out or stays like that.
There are some black lines flashing (sometimes) like when a Windows machines do when the graphics display card is shot.
Would it be the Hard Drive that has packed up ? (thats what I gather but then again I do not know MAC machines

If its a pale blue screen with a really old looking graphic of an apple logo then that means it is not finding a bootable device

I have thought that the pale screen with the apple was because of the fact that it could not find the hard drive or operating sysatem. Thank You... You have confirmed it and it helped me wonderfully. I then took the computer apart and found the hard drive. Took it out and reconnected it. Then.. before I put it all together again I tested the machine and WHALLA!!! it came on beautifully.
I do now however have another problem with the same i-BOOK A1005 laptop. One I put it all togther again I can hear the machine bootup but the screen stays blank. When I take it apart the screen works again. What would be the cause of that ?
