If it does not help then it is possible that the Back light on the screen is faulty. If you just purchased the computer, then you should go back to the vendor and ask him to change or fix it .

Can I upgrade my processor from 667 mhz to 867 mhz on my powerbook g4?


The short answer is no, because it is soldered to the motherboard. Third party companies have offered processor upgrades for certain machines. In my opinion, they tend to be very expensive and not very effective. It's usually more efficient to buy a faster computer.

I don't know if these companies are still in business. Here's a website to check out:

Check to make sure it is compatible with your PowerBook, and check the Better Business Bureau to make sure the company(ies) is/are still viable.

Need Mac G4 laptop schematic manuel


Not sure if you want an actual circuitry schematic, or a internal parts guide.

A manual for field-replacing just about every component inside your Powerbook can be found here.

I expect that circuitry schematics are much harder to come by, and are actually likely to be protected by trade secrets.

Powerbook G4 (1 GHz), 15" LCD glitchy


It could well be the ribbon cable between the screen and motherboard is knackered. Depends how brave you are at dismanteling computers, if you search on powerbook parts you may be able to find a company that scraps computers who could sell you the cable if it is a separate item otherwise it will be an expensive Apple repair!
