Hi to all experts,
My iBook system are shutting down after 10minutes when log on. The message appears like this. the date and time are set before march 2001 and some of the application will not work properly. After this message i set the time and date manually by going to system preferences after 10 minutes it shutdown automatically and never go back to restart again. Is there something wrong with the logic board. Any advice is very much appreciated experts. Thank you. hope you will resolved my problem.
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

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.
Sounds like your best bet is to restart with the Mac OS disk in the drive and holding down the C key. Then reinstall the system OS ... you should be able to do so without removing or altering any of your info files.
If you have the original Install CDs that came with the iBook put in
Install Disk 1. When the Menu Bar appears go to Disk Utility (under file manu). Choose your HD and look for
the S.M.A.R.T. status. It should be Verified. Then choose Repair
Permissions. After that is done choose Repair Disk.
If none of this works find the Hardware Test Disk and run that.
Shut down the computer and start up whilst holding down the mouse button. This may take some time, but keep your finger on the mouse button right up until the disc comes out or the log-in screen has appeared.
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.
