Sell this beast, because the cost and labor to replace the drive isn't worth it. There's like a million screws you got to take out just to access this thing.

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!

Reset_To_Factory_Setting on mac ibook g4


Justin I suppose the easiest way to do this would be to insert your system disk into your ibook boot it up holding down the c key on your keyboard and then instal a fresh system. Use the erase and instal option as this will erase your hard drive. Any other queries get back to me, hope this helps. By the way a step by step way of doing this can be found at http://macs.about.com/od/leopard105/ss/installleopard.htm although it's leopard it should be similar across system.

My ibook G4 has stopped reading my external dvd drive.


If you external DVD drive connects via USB, try rebooting your iBook. (Sometimes a static shock will shut down your USB channel, and only a reboot will reset it.)
If this doesn't work, choose "About This Mac" under the Apple menu, then click on "More Info." Under Hardware, click on USB. See if the drive shows up as one of the attached USB devices. If it does not, the drive or cable may be bad.
If you have another computer available, connect your DVD drive to it. This will tell you whether the drive has failed.

My apple ibook g4 will not recognize the charger


It takes a lot of force to break a charger connector in the charge socket, so the connector socket in the iBook will probably be damaged and needs replacing. Take it to a reputable repairer, or, if you have the skills, you can fit a replacement DC In Board.

Ibook g3 wont startup.


It's probably a problem with the hard drive not being able to be mounted. This can happen when some of the important sectors of the hard drive become corrupted or damaged somehow. The best thing to do is to start with an OS X cd (hold down c after the boot up chime to boot to the CD). When you've done this then cancel the install process and go to tools and use the Disk Utility to repair the drive. I'm guessing that you'll find that it fails because the drive has some serious problems with it.

You can keep trying various stuff, but you'll probably have to reinstall OS X to get it working again.

One thing to try is to use it as a firewire drive (hold T while starting the computer) and then connect it by firewire to another ibook so you can get your Home directory off it and save your data. I'm guessing though that this won't work because the hard drive isn't able to be "mounted" (accessed). Write back if you have more ??s
