Question about Apple iBook G4 Mac Notebook

Open Question

My ibook G4 running OS X 10.4.11 has a hissing sound which has cropped up, at times it intensifies, crackles and may disappear. The only functionality change is that the pin hole micro phone will often stop working and usually when it is working it is on constant playthrough i.e. if you touch the screen panel arounf the mic you can hear it through the speakers or headphones. It this a driver problem? a soundcard problem? Advice please - I produce music and currently with this constant hissing in the background it's driving me crazy!

SOURCE: ibook G4 shuts down by itself

You are having a problem with the logic board/power supply. I had the same issue a while back. I hope it is still under warranty as it is around a 500 - 600 dollar fix. If you take it into apple and they take your computer in for a repair and they mess it up, they will replace it with a newer one, which is what happened to me. So I hope you have similar luck, but other wise you might consider upgrading to a newer model just to avoid the cost if it is still not under a extended apple warranty. Which I bet is the case, being it is a G4 (6-8 years old).

I have heard of this problem before. If the red light is always on the headphone jack might think there is something still in place. You could try blowing any dust out with a can of air before you perform and archive and install.

I don't know what "kies" is, but what your are describing is that your download is for an intel based Mac. You have a PowerPC chip and cannot run the newer programs that do not have PowerPC support.

Your hard drive is failing or has some bad sectors.You can get HDD Regenerator software and run it and it most of the time will regenerate the bad sectors causing problems such as yours.If that doesn't work then your hard drive is failing.Also the install disc may be corrupt/scratched causing the error as well.The OS freezing at startup also indicates the hard drive is bad.

My iBook G4 continues to run slowly and/or freeze


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.

Freezing is a HD problem. Do you hear clicking sometimes? Sometimes on boot up is there a foler with a questionmark in it? I would get your hard drive looked at, this is the reason disc utility fails. Your hard drive has a hiccup.
