PowerPC :: IBook Screen Doesn't Work At Certain Angles?

Aug 10, 2006

My mom's iBook G3 has recently started doing this thing where its screen goes dark if you bend it back far enough. Right now the furthest I can open it is so it's at a bit over a 90 degree angle, or else it'll go dark. Does anyone know what could be causing this?

MacBook Pro :: Why Won't Track-pad Work Properly And The Cursor Will Move On It's Own

Jun 2, 2012

I bought my Macbook Pro less than a year ago and the other night I was watching a TV show in itunes and I couldn't use the track pad. I was able to finally shut the Macbook down and the next morning I rebooted it. It was still acting weird and the trackpad was jumpy and would randomly start opening windows and menus as if someone was contriolling it remotely. I used my bluetooth mouse and it seemed to work ok until tonight when I was copying some files wirelessly (or trying to) and evey time I tried to select files the cursor would jump to another screen and open a menu and then select all and open all my file folders. I was able to get that to stop openin ght ewindows but I still can't use the track pad and the machine acts like it is possesed and has a mind of it's own. I have made sure file saring and screen sharing are off and the battery shows to be normal from doing the control+battery test.

PowerPC :: Add Two Finger Scroll To Ibook

Oct 12, 2008

Did apple just recently add two finger scroll to early non-scroll iBooks or was my iBook screwed up that it never showed up before? I was just in the system preferences last week and I'm 100% sure there were never any options for scrolling before. I'm happy it's there and it works, I'm just curious why it wasn't there before.

PowerPC :: "B" Key Doesn't Work On Clamshell IBook?

Jan 6, 2009

I just noticed while using my Clamshell iBook the other day that the "B" key no longer works on the keyboard. Not sure why all of a sudden it no longer works, but it doesn't. I have tried everything, and no luck.

I guess I want to prolong taking it to Apple as much as I can because of the age of the laptop, I know it won't be cheap to fix�and obviously not worth it.

Hardware :: Cleaned Wireless Mighty Mouse Scroll And Now Scrolling Doesn't Work At All?

Oct 28, 2009

I went ahead and disassembled my wireless mighty mouse, unscrewed the scroll ball from the lid of the mouse and found a ton of lint and cr@p that has been living in here for quite some time. cleaned it all up, put it together, now all of the little rollers spin freely, great.

I go to put everything together, including the 2 ribbon cables, mouse snaps together, fire it up, mouse works fine, i can click, side buttons work, but the scroll does not work at all now. left to right use to be fine, it was just up and down. now nothing works.

any idea what could have gone wrong? did i forget something?

PowerPC :: Installing Cheetah On IBook G4 - Doesn't Boot

May 29, 2009

i didnt have much to do a couple days ago so i thought i'd install Cheetah on my iBook G4, turned out to be harder than i thought. For some reason it doesnt boot any os prior to Tiger, so I installed Tiger and copied an image of the Tiger OS with the OS 9.2 (i think you have to have it on the system to install prior OS's). So i did that and when i pop the Cheetah cd in it loads and opens OS 9.2 but then it says: "This Application Does Not Run In The Classic Environment - To Install Mac OS X, start up your computer from the Mac OS X CD." Which i did but still doesnt load. I still have an old PowerBook G3 and installed Cheetah on it, then i removed its hd, and created a new sparse image from it. Then i booted up Tiger on the ibook g4 and restored from the image, all went fine, i selected the correct boot device and even repaired permissions but still it doesnt want to boot up Cheetah on the iBook!

My iMac developed an issue where the cursor is impossible to control (jumps) and pages in all programs will scroll on their own.It occurs even when the mouse and keyboard are disabled, so it is not a hardware problem with those devices.

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.

PowerPC :: Unable To Use IBook Tracking Pad

Jun 15, 2008

I recently purchased a used last-generation iBook on Ebay and immediately uncovered what I believe is a significant problem. While using the tracking pad and simply scrolling down a menu or passing over icons, it will be as if I've clicked on the mouse button and I'm thrown into unwanted pages. Further, I can tap on the tracking pad and it will likewise act as a mouse button and I can access anything I would ordinarily use the mouse button for.

Clearly, this is something I'm not happy about. Before I go yelling and screaming back to the seller and make threats, is there something I can do as far as a fix on this?

PowerPC :: Unable To Get IBook G4 Graphics

May 13, 2009

I brought my iBook G4 to school today, and it sent the whole time in my backpack. When I got home, I turned it on, and it started booting up, but when the screen came on, it was only gray. I opened it, and saw that the lcd was still plugged in, so what could this be? Can the 32mb vram iBooks get the graphics problem?

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.
