Apple ibook g4 with no restore disks

Hello All,
Four months ago I brought a Apple Ibook g4 laptop for 287.95 on ebay. The only problem I have with the laptop is that there is no restore disks for the drivers and the operating system. Currently the laptop is running mac os 10.4.11. Can anyone help find a website where I can download drivers and the operating system for my Ibook g4 laptop. I have been in contact with apple but they want me to phone a premium no.

SOURCE: Lexmark X6170 doesn't seem to work with Apple ibook G4

I've enjoyed using a Lexmark printer with my Macs (a G4/PowerBookand
iMac Indigo, both running OS X 10.2.3), so when I needed an all-in-one
for my hobby shop, I bought a Lexmark X6170. Looks like a great unit,
but unfortunately, I cannot find any Macintosh drivers or downloads
for it on Lexmark's site. I contacted Lexmark's Customer Support, and
received the following unhelpful replies from India:

"Please accept my heartfelt apologies for the problems you are
experiencing with your Lexmark product. But Lexmark X6150/6170 do not
support MAC."

"To the best of my knowledge, there are currently no plans to develop
Mac drivers to support this model. Thank you for notifying us of this
request. I will forward your comments on to our development
department, as it is only through input from you, our customers, that
we can make these important business decisions."

I'm hoping forum members can help me out with some kind of
work-around, as it seems (to my naive mind, anyway) that the elements
to make this unit work with my Macs are available; they just need to
be gathered together. Here's my reasoning -- please tell me where/if
I'm wrong:

First, I'm assuming that it's very likely there's a printer driver for
the printer section of the X6170; since most Lexmark printers are
supported on the Mac (like my Lexmark Z22), there must be a driver for
one of Lexmark's many Mac-supported printers that would work with the
X6170.

Second, the scanner is a USB input device, so the interfaceis no
problem. I'm assuming that, like most modern scanners, the one in the
X6170 is TWAIN-compliant, so it should work directly in Photoshop, or
with a TWAIN-compliant third-party scanning app like SilverFast.

The copier and fax functions of the X6170 are, of
course,stand-alone,so there's no problem there.

I really don't want to give up on the Lexmark X6170 (especially since
the original packaging got thrown away!). Please help me explore some
"out of the box" solutions to mating my Macs with the X6170.

I have a grey screen and apple on my iBook G4. No cd and I don;t know where to turn.


if you or a friend have another Mac, use it to start up the iBook in Firewire mode (hold the T key on the laptop when restarting). You can reinstall the operating system, or try to simply repair the disk with Disk Utility.

If you have another MAC computer available, you can create a USB key to solve this problem:

If not, I'm afraid you will have to turn to an authorized apple service center. They will do the repair for you.

apple doesnt need drivers to be installed seperatly, the osx discs have them all and installs them as you install your OSX. you need to buy the discs from ebay for your laptop like search, (ibook g4 13" osx ) and do a fresh installation
