The blue screen marks the start of the login process. If the Mac freezes there, it usually indicates that some third-party System Preference is hanging the boot process. There are several ways to diagnose the problem. The simplest is to hold down the Shift key after hearing the boot chime. This will disable third-party System Preferences and should allow you to come up to the login screen. Then you can review the third-party preferences and go to the website of each of them to make sure you have the most up-to-date version that is compatible with your level of the Mac OS.

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.

Sounds like a GPU problem to me.

You can go diy approach which involves taking the laptop totally apart and then heating up the GPU with a heat gun.

If you google you'll find guides for this.

Best of luck!

My iBOOK G4 won't start up


Your hard drive doesn't have an operating system. Take this to an Apple Store. Maybe they'll be kind and install it for you.

My ibook g4 has a blue screen when it comes on


It appears that your system is corrupted or the hard drive is damaged. Try re-installing the system software from the CD by holding down the C key during start up. Then run Disc Utilities to check the hard drive.
