    I tried that already. My battery last half to one hr onlyso I always plug in the power adapter to use my iBook. Right now, when i boot my pc it only takes 5minutes or less then it will automatic shutdown again then could not restart at all. I have to wait for a day just to start booting it up again but still the same thing happen. I just read on the forum that it maybe the GPU or the monitor is the problem so what i did is connect to external monitor but still nothing's happen, the monitor or gpu is not the problem. Please advice me again. Thank you.

The date and time are held by the battery so I would guess the battery is going dead or is. Try keeping it plugged in and shut it down for a few then reboot. If the time and date stay good guess the battery is dead. Also make sure you get the power management firmware update from apple. hope it helps

I can not install viber apple ibook g4.when ever i try to down load i am told the application viber can not supported by this architecture


Hi Christy,
Viber appears to work only with OSx 10.7 and up, which is not supported on an iBook.
When they say "viber can not supported by this architecture", they're referring to the iBook not having an Intel processor like the MacBooks do.
Hope this helps!

We ran a typical Ibook G3 14 inch battery of tests, including games, applications, and a couple other areas. Time constraints limited the amount of testing we could get done before the NDA lift (and it's already a few hours late), but we will be providing a follow-up article with further testing and information. That said, if there are any specific areas that you'd like to see tested, feel free to e-mail me or leave a comment.

IBook G4 1GHz 256mb 40GB Combo 14" -Pre Owned Mac Notebook: how do I reset the date and time...


Double click date time. It will open the window. If you need to do it on a regular basis you need to change the main battery of your ibook.

Just put a tick next to the apple time server deal and it will do it automatically anytime you are connected to the internet.

Battery for iBook 14inch not recognized by iBook


you could try resetting your pram..?

Resetting PRAM and NVRAM
  1. Shut down the computer.
  2. Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command, Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously in step 4.
  3. Turn on the computer.
  4. Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.
  5. Hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for the second time.
  6. Release the keys.
Your computer's PRAM and the NVRAM are reset to the default values. The clock settings may be reset to a default date on some models.
Resetting PMU on PowerBook or iBook computers In some troubleshooting situations, if resetting PRAM does not resolve an issue, resetting the PMU may be the next appropriate step. For information on when this is appropriate and for instructions on how to reset the PMU in your PowerBook computer, see Resetting PowerBook and iBook Power Management Unit (PMU).

LCD / External VGA output problems


Hi
If you are still faced with this problem.....
Possibly the video card has gone in the unit. The original screen on the laptop may have had an blown inverter which would not stop the funcioning of the external display. However for the external disply to stop working would suggest the video card. Before going this far have you checked to see if there is power to the external monitor? Have you tried the monitor on another computer? If the monitor works with another computer you can be certain there is more wrong with your poor old iBook. You will need to take it in to be looked at.

Hope this helps.
