Re: on-screen keyboard problem
I think you might have your Hotkeys on, try disabling them
Hotkeys will only work while the SmartNAV software is running.
Keyboard keys assigned to Hotkeys will not perform their normal
keyboard function while they are being used as Hotkeys. For example, if
the CAPS LOCK keyboard key is assigned to Left Click, it will only
perform Left Clicks while the SmartNAV software is running. It will
resume performing the normal CAPS LOCK function when the SmartNAV
software is closed, or if the Hotkey is re-assigned or disabled.

Pre 10.7 you are provided OSx Disks. Simply insert the Disk and the installer will appear on your screen, run through that, it will reboot and starup off the disk. At the option of installation destination you can change the option to erase the Hard Drive and install.
Post 10.7 you will need to restart/power on your mac and hold the Option key [left of the CMD key] and you will see your hard drive and a recovery partition. Same process after that..
Many many reasons may be causing your Mac computer running
slow, but generally two factors: hardware part & system part. For
hardware part: I guess it's OK if your Mac is not that old. For system
part: there might be a lot of junk files, caches, registry errors... out
there which largely slow down any Mac machines. about 80% slow Mac
caused by this reason, if so, try cleaning the system. Learn more from:
when your mac is off, try blowing some air in between the keys from all angles. Maybe to eliminate the keypad if tha'ts not the issue, try an external keyboard (wireless or usb connected) & see if everything types ok. If it does, you most likely have some dust/hairs/debris in your keypad. It happens..
My W, A, and S keys were paralyzed for a few days... the cause...one strand of hair from one of my dogs...Thanks alot Max.. ;)
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
With the OS X Installer CD in the drive, try booting your mac and holding down the option key immediately after you hear the start up chime. This will (hopefully) load a firmware boot loader that will show available start up discs. Hopefully the OSX installer will show up as CD Icon. Select the Icon with your mouse or keyboard and press enter to start up with the Installer CD. From the installer you should be able to erase and format the drive as Mac OS Extended before installing OS X.
If the computer still won't boot from the CD double check that it is a retail OS X installer CD. If your CD has "software restore" or "ibook restore" or any other varient of restore written on the label; or if it names a particular model such as "ibook install" or "imac install" it is not a retail copy and may not be a bootable disc. A retail copy will only name the version of the operating system followed by the word install written on it's label and usually have a brief instruction on booting from the CD by holding the C key at startup.
does it boot up at all if the osx is starting then it is, have u run out of space try getting external drive even dongle 8gb and tell itune to save to this see if thats the problenm the harddrives arnt big on those
