Hard drives are rated with an expectation of roughly five years before serious failures occur. This model is at least 14 years old so it's not surprising that it's reporting missing files.

you have to go to the printer manufacturer to get drivers for the computer. The os comes with drivers for different printers but if your printer was manufactured after the OS you are using wa made it will not be inherent to it.

One thing to do is to connect the printer to the computer and reinstall the os with the system disk. Sometimes this will fix it. Another way to do this is to run software update from the apple drop down menu to see if there are any updates to your current os. That machine should run mac os x 10.4 if you have enough ram in it. Ram for that machine is very cheap.

It's probably too old to use the current protocol of your wireless network. The G3 has been abandoned hardware for at least 7-8 years.

Try this...

Hold Apple+S when booting to enter single user mode
  • #sh /etc/rc
  • #passwd yourusername
  • #reboot
If you can't recall your user name, you can either look in the /Users folder (the directories are named by user), or run "niutil -list . /users".
Also, on older systems the /etc/rc script isn't available, apparently. If that second step fails, try mounting and starting the base services manually:
  • #/sbin/fsck -y
  • #/sbin/mount -uw /
  • #/sbin/SystemStarter
I've had to do this a couple of times for friends when they've bought a second hand machine, and once when I had a momentary brain lapse and forgot my own password. Works like a charm, though you'll loose any passwords stored in your keychain.

Hi
I assume by "Appleworks wp" you mean "Pages"
- have you tried opening it from within the software? By first starting the application and then via the "file" menu select "Open..."?
Hope this helps

Try the Epson website for Apple based software. Is the Epson Printer and iBook wireless? There may be a Application for Epson printer offered. If the Epson isn't AirPrint compatible it's a bit of a pain. Take a look at the Apple forum: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/232426?start=0&tstart=0 OR: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4356

How are you trying to connect?  Wireless or via wired connection?  There's a control panel called NETWORK on in the systems preferences.  If you go into that control panel it will show you the options that are available and what their status is.  For example, I'm using the wireless on MacBook Pro and it shows a GREEN light next to the wireless connection.  If you let us know how you are trying to connect to the internet, it'll help us solve your problem.

If you are talking about liquid damage, then there is no real way to fix it. liquids and electronic don't like each other.

If you can take the battery out of the computer. plugin the power adapter to the computer and the wall start the computer using only the power adapter for your source of power.
If everything starts up normally you will need to replace the battery.
