Question about Apple iBook G4 1GHz 256mb 40GB Combo 14" -Pre Owned Mac Notebook
The flashing folder icon is telling you that your Mac cannot locate a working operating system to startup.
You may be having a software problem that is keeping your Mac from recognizing your operating system, or a hardware problem that is keeping your Mac from connecting to your hard drive (where the operating system lives).
Since you don't have access to a CD/DVD of the Mac operating system, ff you have an external hard drive with a working operating system on it, try connecting it to your Mac with FireWire and startup the computer holding down these keys: Command (Apple) +option+shift+delete. This will force the Mac to attempt to startup from the external drive.
If none of these things work, we would be glad to help at TechRestore. You can use coupon code "TWEET" for $10 off any drive replacement service. We offer free shipping options and local pickup in your neighborhood. http://techrestore.com
