Does your daughter eat or drink over the computer?

Reset the PRAM, if nothing yet, replace the keyboard. Because thats a string location, which means if you look at it, its a "line" across the keyboard, that usually happens when there has been liquid spillage. If so, the warranty has also been voided and may require paying for labor and parts.

You may have to reset the PRAM. Note: To print these instructions, open Help Viewer's Action pop-up menu (looks like a gear), then choose Print.
  1. Shut down your Mac.
  2. Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Option, Command (?), P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously in step 4.
  3. Turn on your Mac.
  4. Immediately press and hold the Option-Command-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears. Continue holding the keys down until your Mac restarts, and you hear the startup sound for the second time.
  5. Release the keys.
Resetting PRAM may change some system settings and preferences. Use System Preferences to restore your settings.
Happy 2015!

Usb dosent work


Shut down your mac.Restart it and immediately hold down the following keys all together - Command + Alt(Option depending on your keyboard) + P + R.
That's 4 keys all at the same time - DO NOT LET THEM UP. Keep holding them down untill you hear the start-up **** 3 times then let go and let the mac start up properly.
Do your USB ports work now?
If not you need to see a service shop.

My laptop powers up but now it will frequently


This folder means your Mac can't find a "Startup Disk'. Try holding down the "option" key at startup.
If you see a drive, select it and click the arrow.
If you have an iBook or Powerbook try holding down the "X" key at startup.
If neither of these options work you may need to repair the disk. To do this do the following.
Turn on your mac, immediately after the tone press and hold the command + S keys until the computer shows a black screen with white text.

Once this is finished loading you'll be at a "command line"

Type the following exactly as shown, including spaces.

/sbin/fsck -fy

Now press the return key.

If any repairs were made, repeat entering the command and press return.

Do this until no repairs are made.

Now type the following exactly as shown.

reboot

And press return.

If your computer reboots and makes it to the login screen then congratulations. If not you can try this as well.

Start up your mac and BEFORE the grey screen appears press and hold the following keys at the same time.

command + option + p + r

hold these keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for the second time, then let go of the keys.

Other than that you may need to take it to someone to be repaired. hope this helps.

Computer won't show start up screen, only shows different colors ie. green, then pink, blue... i took out the battery and started it without the battery and got the same results.


First you need to reset the PRAM:
  1. Shut down the computer.
  2. Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command, Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously in step 4.
  3. Turn on the computer.
  4. Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.
  5. Hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for the second time.
  6. Release the keys.
Next you need to reset the PMU (power management unit). This will depend on the model of your iBook so follow the instructions on Apples page:

Hope this gets you going again

All the best
