If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, until they won't charge up at all and have no charged capacity. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

You probably need a new battery but that machine should only get about 3-4hours with a great battery.

My ibook stays on the white screen but the apple and the spinning thing doesnt show up but i hear the chimes and i am trying to download my new os x software please help me get it to work


You may have a bad hard drive. The "chime" means that the iBook was able to power on, and the white screen means that it foung the efi or firmware, but the fact that it will not go to the apple or the spinning gear means that it cannot detect an operating system on a hard disk.

Do you have the OSX CD? Put the CD in your ibook, power it on, and hold down the "C" key. This will allow you to boot to the CD. if the hard drive is still good, then it will allow you to install, if not then it will tell you there are no hard disks available. Hope this helps.

There are several models of iBook G4. The following sequence applies to the "14-inch Early 2004."

If this procedure does not being it back, invasive diagnostics are required, in which case you should being it to an Apple-Certified tech for repair.

IBook G4 shows picture of mouse needing batteries


It sounds like your internal trackpad isn't working, and it is currently asking you to hook up a mouse, be it thru Bluetooth or USB - have you tried a USB mouse on it to see what happens?

CD drive + Flash drive not detected


Some of the iBook G4 optical drives are very sensitive. The best way to test if it is still working is to use the System Disks that comes with every Mac.
Regarding the Flash disk, it may be that your iBook is using USB 1.1 protocol, while your Flash is using USB 2.0. You can check what type of USB your iBook has in the System Profiler. If it is 1.1, then you are out of luck. If its USB 2.0, then you have a faulty logic board.
Either way, not good news for you. Sorry.
