Step 1.After you come to desktop .right click and then select properties.> then for the color settings it should be 32 bit..you will find that option in the last tab..

Step 2. open 'Run' type dxdiag > after whic a window will open now check all the tabs and set the hardware accelaration to full.

Hope this resolve the issue..

How do you reset power management on the ibook g3


For most situations, a restart is sufficient. If the computer has stopped responding, try these steps, in order, until the computer responds:
  1. Force Quit (Option-Command-Escape)
  2. Restart (Control-Command-Power)
  3. Force Shut Down (press the power button for 10 seconds)
Only perform a PMU reset on the computer if none of the above steps resolved the situation.

My ibook g3 running slow


If you have the original Install CDs that came with the iBook put in Install Disk 1.
When the Menu Bar appears go to Disk Utility (under file manu). Choose your HD and look for the S.M.A.R.T. status. It should be Verified. Then choose Repair Permissions. After that is done choose Repair Disk.

If none of this works find the Hardware Test Disk and run that.

Hi i have a ibook g3 { i just bought it from a friend} i can i restore to a factory settings without a trouble


To restore an iBook G3 to factory settings you need the installation CDs that came with the iBook. Ask your friend to find them. Sometimes you can purchase replacement sets on eBay, but they have to be for your exact model. Please realize that the original installation CDs that came with this iBook will contain OS 9, not OS X, so I question whether you really want to restore this machine "to factory settings." What you may choose to do instead is a "clean install" from a more recent retail OS X CD or DVD.

YouTube videos play, but jump from scene to scene. Audio plays in real time and sounds fine.


turns out you have an iBook G3. Your computer is really too outdated to be expected to play video properly. You can add more RAM but it really will only partially help you out. the G3 computers just aren't made for decoding streaming video, especially now that YT has HD video.

Grey screen on G3 ibook


Hi, Sorry you are having trouble,
Sounds to me like you're going to have to re-open that puppy and check all the connections, sometimes, when putting it back together, some cables are stretched and come un plugged...
Be careful, go slow...
