My powerbook G4 will not startup... All that appears on the screen when I try to turn on my computer is a tiny folder with a question mark on it. The mouse pad is nonresponsive.


Computer cannot find operating system files. Start up from Install Disk or Utility disk and re-install system. Hold down C key while starting from disk.

Try resetting the PRAM by turning on the iBook then holding option + command + P + R and wait till u hear another chime. If it still freezes, it may indicate an application may be causing it to lock up hold shift after you hear the chime to boot OS X into safe boot.
