PowerPC :: Connecting An External Monitor To My Ibook G4

Sep 29, 2008

Hi- I have an ibook G4 (mid 2005). I'd like to be able to connect it to my new 22" external display so that I can have dual monitors. However, the external display plug obviously does not fit into the slot in the ibook.

Does anybody know the name of the converter cable I would need to buy in order to connect the external display to my ibook? And roughly how much these cost?

PowerPC :: IBook And Setting External Monitor As Main Display

Sep 15, 2007

I have a 14'' iBook and recently bought an LG 19'' Widescreen monitor. I am testing a Dell 17'' on it right now before I open the LG one, but my problem is that the same screen shows on my ibook and the external. This isn't what I want. I have read you are supposed to be able to close the laptop and then it shifts to the external display but this is not working for me.

This is my goal:
Use my bluetooth keyboard full time
Have my ibook closed at all times
Have my external as my main display
How do I make this work?

PowerPC :: LCD TV / Monitor With 12" IBook (1024 X 768 Resolution)

Jul 26, 2006

I have a 12" iBook w/ 1024 x 768 resolution. I see that the 23" LCD TVs which also claim to function as monitors have a resolution of 1366 x 768. Given that the screen hack will be used on the iBook, will I benefit from the bigger screen? Am I better off with a 20" monitor?

PowerPC :: Ibook & Xtra Monitor Are Running Slow

Sep 27, 2009

I recently bought myself an Xtra monitor to hook up to my Ibook. I also used the hack to be able to split up the monitors to have full resolution of my new monitor.

but now my computer is running slower. somewhere in this forum I have found out that because of the hack my Ibook now has to work extra hard to be able to run on 2 monitors.

my question is, isn't there a way to be able to use my new monitor at full resolution and just shut of the original Ibook monitor? so my Ibook does not have to split up his memory? If I mirror them I Can't work on full resolution ...

somebody doing this?

Or... What do I do/buy/download that my Ibook can work on 2 monitors, but doesn't run slower.

PowerPC :: Will PB G4 1.33 RAM Work In IBook G4

May 5, 2007

Quick (hopefully!) question: Will RAM from a G4 Powerbook 1.33 GHz (PC2700) work in an iBook G4 1.2 GHz, which normally takes PC2100?

Reason for the question is that I have one of each, and am going to sell the iBook. I'd like to transfer one of the 256 Mb sticks from the PB to the iBook and then replace that stick with a 1 Gb stick.

PowerPC :: Ibook New Harddrive Cd-rom Don't Work?

Apr 24, 2009

I have a white g3 ibook dual usb. I put in a bigger hard drive and can't install tiger which is a cd not dvd that boots fine in my imac. Cd drive will not eject with eject (f12) key or fn f12. I have to pull it open manually. I can reset the nvram by booting into firmware and typing reset all. I can't boot up to a screen with a refresh arrow and a right arrow that I can click on but nothing happens. All I get a start up is a folder with a blinkin face question mark.

MacBook Air :: External Monitor Don't Work

Mar 16, 2009

OS X :: Won't Work With External Monitor / Out Of Range

Jan 12, 2010

When I got my 26" monitor the other day it worked right out of the box plugging into my 13" Macbook Pro. I am slaving it off the macbook w/o using the LED screen on the MBP. Just the external.

Yesterday I was trying to improve the image quality and changed the frequency (common bad decision) and am getting the common "out of range" message.

Now if I run the external WITH the 13" LED of the MBP it is fine as it's using a different profile/preferences to set the right frequency.

I have deleted the pref file that everyone on the net says to do with no luck
I have reset the PRAM and VRAM as suggested with no help.

Is there another location for the preferences related to this in Snow Leopard as most help I am finding is a year old to several years old. The pref to delete in old posts just doesn't do the trick.

Again the monitor works fine when used in conjunction with the screen on the MBP but is out of range when running solo with the MBP lid closed.

PowerPC :: IBook G4 Won't Work To Boot In Safe Mode

Sep 2, 2010

This iBook G4 will not boot. I can boot it into safe mode, but that is about it. I have tried resetting the PRAM, to no avail. It cannot even boot off of an OSX disc. When I try to boot it normally, it just shows the Apple symbol, but no progress wheel thing spinning. When I try to boot it normally, it appears as if the hard drive is not being read from/written to, because it is dead silent, but when I boot into safe mode, you can hear the HDD noise. When I booted into safe mode, I checked the HDD's SMART status, and it says "Verified," so I do not think that the HDD is at fault. However, it still has its original HDD from 2004.

PowerPC :: Media Play Mouse Won't Work On IBook?

May 17, 2006

I have a Logitech Mediaplay Mouse that will not work on my iBook: it reads the receiver, but nothing about the mouse works. At first I thought it was because it must use a non-standard driver (and OS X isn't officially supported in the documentation), but after a little experimentation I've found that it works perfectly on my Cube (running Panther), my dad's Powerbook G4 (Tiger), my brother's Sawtooth G4 (Tiger), and every PC I have. My dad and brother don't use USB Overdrive, but the mouse worked perfectly with USB Overdrive on my Cube and it doesn't work on my iBook whether USB Overdrive is installed or not. I have never had any problems with peripherals and my iBook before. I love this mouse, so someone please help me figure how to make it work!

PowerPC :: Won't Work With Keyboard And Ibook Safe Mode

Aug 6, 2006

i splashed some theraflu on the right side of the keyboard approximately 3 days ago. as many had mentioned, i removed the keyboard and carefully removed any liquid residue i could find and kept my computer off for a few days. today i went to figure out the damage and everything seems to work okay in terms of the computer turning on and stuff. the keyboard is still acting up though. the left side of the keyboard works mostly okay, but if i press certain letters, the number along with random number appears. the right side of the keyboard, on the other hand, several keys don't even respond at all. from these "symptoms" do you guys think the only thing that i may have to replace is the keyboard or could these "symptoms" i've described be related to some other damage also? how much does replacing a keyboard usually cost? i'm thinking this isn't going to be covered by my warranty. lastly, i've noticed that when i do turn the computer on, it automatically starts in safe-mode.

I have a MacPro(2006-07) which came with Tiger also but I Tried on the macbook thinking it would work, but it doesnt, when it boot up shows like a black log screen saying that Drives for powerbook 5.6 havent been found something like that, and asks t turn it off.. tried like 3 times, all the same, so I quit.

All I want is reinstall tiger in it, since Leopard probably will slow it down too much, im upgrading to 1.25gb soon also...

Hardware :: Won't Work With External Monitor Choices

Oct 12, 2010

I bought my 13"MBP about 2-3 months ago. I mainly use it for uni so It's back and forth (great portability). But I am looking into getting a monitor for my setup at home. I have the hdmi adapter + HDMI cable which I use to connect to my tv in the living room. (52" Bravia). I am looking to spend about $150-$200 no more then that. Apple monitors are out of my price range.

I also have a few questions.
- Is it better to get a monitor with HDMI?
- Is vga/dvi good? How is it for those who have it?
- Is there much difference between 1600 x 900 and 1920 x 1080?
- Will my MBP look fine on any of these monitors?

Here are some that I have been looking at

IMac :: Won't Work With I7 27" / Using As External Monitor

Aug 16, 2010

I bought the mini-display port to dual link dvi adaptor for $99. However, it doesn't work from going from my pc to the imac or from my macbook pro to the imac. I find it retarded that they wouldn't even sell a working adapter.

Has anyone gotten this to work or does anyone know which adapter I can buy to get this going?

-PC to iMac
-2009 (pre-minidisplay port) dvi to imac.

I need it to be dual link dvi because I want to use it at max resolution.
