When I turn on the mac iBook G4 it says you need to restart the computer, and when I did it just gives me a black screen and it chimes but nothing else.


Try SMC and PRAM reset. To do this you need to google the model number and the reset instructions. If that does not work you need to reinstall the OSX

I don't know the administrator password for my iBook G4


I don't know if this will help much, but you need to get your hands on a copy of either an iBook system disc or a retail Tiger OS disk. (Disclaimer: Please use legal copies.).

With the disc in the drive, restart the machine and hold down C to boot from the disc. There's an option to reset the admin password when booted from the disc. It may be in a menu (top of screen). Reset the admin password and you'll be all set. If you don't have a Tiger disc, you may be able to get one inexpensively from eBay or wherever.

This brings up something I've noticed helping people with problems, most don't know where their system discs are (or never got them). You'll likely need a system disc eventually. Friendly advice: Keep track of them!

Boot up the mac with the instal disk holding down the c key on your keyboard once it has booted up go to the menus and you will see a change the password item, use this to change the password. Once you have changed it quit out off the instal disk. Hope this helps.

Get the gray OS discs specific for the PowerBook. Your iBook gray discs won't work. You can also install the OS by getting a black label retail version disc of whatever cat you like- Panther or Tiger. If the software installs, but you hear noises or get the spinning beach ball of death, then the hard drive is fu.k.d up. You then have to open up the computer and install a new hard drive and re-install the OS. Good luck old chap. Cheers.

Not able to install system software


Leopard is not really suited for the iBook G4.  I would recommend you go back to Tiger and see if that gets rid of your lockup.  Leopard is more suitable for the Macbook.

I'm selling my iBook G4 (os X tiger) and I need to set it to factory settings. I have master password set up and some sort of safety net password that lets me unlock any FileVault account( I do remember...


Your best bet is to insert the original discs that came with the computer, restart it, and hold down the C key as soon as it reboots. This will tell the computer to boot off of the installer disc you have inserted. Once that is done, step through the installer, keeping an eye out for an "options" button on the 2nd or 3rd screen. Click on that, and choose "Erase and Install" as your installation type.
This will erase the drive, and reinstall a fresh copy of that version of OS X with no users or passwords set. If you're feeling nice, you can probably also use those discs to reinstall all of the software that came with the computer. (iPhoto, etc.)

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

Failure to reboot after a Software update.


Hi stuart,
It sounds like you either may have a corrupt system or a faulty hard drive. Try reinstalling OSX with the system discs that came with the computer. You can still keep everything if choose the "Archive and install" option.
If this doesn't help, then I'd say the hard drive may have seen its last days.

You need to run the disk utility program to repair disk permissions. It is in the applications folder, in utilities, first aid. If the iBook won't let you run that program, you will need to boot from the Tiger CD and run the disk utility from there.

The final revision of Tiger is 10.4.11. Once you have your system in order you will want to check for Apple updates. This can be found under the apple menu at the top of your screen or in system preferences.
