I have the same thing happen to my iBook. If it's the older G3 version it's most likely the video card. This is a fairly common problem I found while researching on the net. The ibook's video card runs hot and the soldering between the mother board and the chip have become loose. Do you still hear the fan come on? Do the lights for the Caps Lock and Number Lock keys still come on when you press the buttons? When you connect to the VGA adaptor and try to hook up to a regular monitor does it still come up blank? Then yes it's the chip. Buying a replacement screen won't fix it. My fix was sort of a bootleg; basically take the bottom panel off, remove the silver heat shield and you'll see the chip covered in the thermal pad. Scrape the padding off, get yourself a good heat sink and cut the legs off. Make sure not to cut it flush or just by smaller mini heat sinks. Put thermal paste on the chip, put the new heat sink on, put the heat shield back in place, put the bottom back on. One thing to note is that the new heat sink you put on needs to be big enough so that the bottom cover and heat shield DON'T fit comfortably; needs to bubble out a little so that the chip is under tight pressure and presses firmly in place on the mother board. Like I said it's a bootleg but my ibook works fine.

How do I use this for buying e-books?


Purchasing ebooks through the iBooks Store is very similar to buying any other media via Apple's iTunes Store. One key difference, though, is how you access the store. Rather than through iTunes or a dedicated app like the iTunes Store app on the iPad and iPhone, in this case, you access it through the iBooks app.
In the top left corner of the iBooks app is a button that reads "Store". To access the iBooks Store and begin shopping for iPhone- and iPad-compatible ebooks, tap that button.

Once you enter the iBooks Store, the browsing and searching experience is very similar to using the iTunes Store. In this case, you can search for the author or title you want in the top-right corner search box.
To browse books, either tap the icons on the main page of the store or tap the "Categories" menu item in the top left corner. This drops down a menu with all of the iBooks store's categories in it. Tap the category you're looking for to see books in that genre.

In the iBooks Store, when you tap a book title to get more details (synopsis, reviews, etc.) a window pops up and the background grays out a bit.
In this window, you can download a free sample of the book to your iBooks library by tapping the "Get Sample" button. This is the equivalent of iTunes' 30-second song preview, which helps you get a sense of whether you want to purchase the book.
When you decide to purchase a book, tap the price on the left side of the screen next to the book cover. The button will turn green and read "Buy Book". Tap it again to buy the book.
To close the pop-up window and not buy the book, simply tap anywhere outside the window.

You buy at the iBooks Store using the same iTunes account and password as you do at the iTunes Store or App Store. When buying a book, you'll be prompted to enter your password to pay for the ebook before it will begin downloading.

Once you've entered your iTunes account password, the eBook will download to your iPad. How long this takes will depend on the book (its length, how many images it has, etc.).
When the book is done downloading, it will appear as a title on the bookshelves in the iBooks app. Tap it to begin reading.

When you power on the (apple) or (mac os x) iBook model#A1005 ( NTBOE004010) a screen comes on and ask for username and password. i purchased this computer ibook second hand so how do i proceed from here...


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 G4 iBook screen goes dark shortly after I power-up, even If I hit the F2 key, the screen remains dark.


Hi,
Got the same problem with my ibook G4.
I have research on how to fix it, and found out that most model of G4 has the same problem.
I soon found out the main problem and the solution, it would require some skill in soldering and dis assembling the whole laptop.
Go to this site and hope it will help you just it like it helps me a lot!

Screen shuts down past 90degrees-g3 x12inch


It's bad wiring between the motherboard & screen. Service is required. Go to a local Apple Store retailer to get your MacBook G3 fixed.

Apple ibook crashed when on MS Word. Black screen fan running???


Sounds like you have a problem with the logic board. This appears to be a common problem with iBook G4 related to the fit of the logic board (ie motherboard) within the case.If you were to take it to apple store the likely fix would be to replace the entire logic board which is very expensive and probably not fiscally sound on a 5 year old machine. Another option would be to try to fix it yourself. If you are feeling brave you can dissemble the laptop and attempt to shimmy the logic board back into position.

Here's a link that detail the approach. http://www.coreyarnold.org/ibook/. This guy had success on two ibooks that had the same problem and they have been working for 2 years since he did his repair
Also, here is a link to a forum that may offer you a few more approaches to solving your problem. iBook G4 won't boot up - fan running & black screen - AppleNova Forums

Hope this helps, good luck!

My iBook G4 continues to run slowly and/or freeze


Try resetting the PRAM by turning on the iBook then holding option + command + P + R and wait till u hear another chime. If it still freezes, it may indicate an application may be causing it to lock up hold shift after you hear the chime to boot OS X into safe boot.
