Is it possible that you accidently pulled a connector off of the CD/DVD drive while you were replacing the Hard drive? Other then that, there should be little reason for you CD/DVD not working if it was working to begin with and I assume it was. Don't worry about the Hard Drive LED, until you start installing your new operating system. It is entirely possible that the Hard drive LED will be hard to see until you start installing to it.

My ibook stays on the white screen but the apple and the spinning thing doesnt show up but i hear the chimes and i am trying to download my new os x software please help me get it to work


You may have a bad hard drive. The "chime" means that the iBook was able to power on, and the white screen means that it foung the efi or firmware, but the fact that it will not go to the apple or the spinning gear means that it cannot detect an operating system on a hard disk.

Do you have the OSX CD? Put the CD in your ibook, power it on, and hold down the "C" key. This will allow you to boot to the CD. if the hard drive is still good, then it will allow you to install, if not then it will tell you there are no hard disks available. Hope this helps.

Check for a failing hard drive


Trying booting from the Mac OS X install disc.

insert the Mac OS X install disc.

press the start button, while holding down the "C" key on the keyboard


Once you are running from the disc. go to Disk Utilities select the hard drive click the "repair permissions" button at the bottom.


If you get any red errors listed or it doesn't seem to finish repairing the permissions you have a failing hard drive and it will need to be replaced.

well there is a solution so first check the type of hard drive in your ibook and check if any of your friends have an ibook, if so replace hard drive with yours and you can extract your data if your hard drive is working.

I was trying to install Mac OS X 10.3 on my G3 iBook, it did not work, and now neither does the iBook.


It sounds like you have a hardware issue of some sort - likely a bad hard drive, due to age. I would suggest taking the laptop to a repair shop (don't bother with the Apple Store, they'll tell you to buy a new laptop or just turn you away). Best of luck!

When you say recovery disk I assume you mean the main OS disk. A recovery disk on a mac generally is one you would make as a back up. Depending on the OS you used you would need to get a new one. These you can pick up from eBay pretty cheaply, both OS9 and OSX10.4.

All the best

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.
