View Full Version : Ibook not turning on

Mar 21, 2009, 03:36 PM
I have a iBook G4 with the following spec. 14 Screen 933 MHz Processor / 384 MB RAM / 40 GB HD, OS 10 panther
Untill now it was working perfectly, last week in was on and hanged up and was heated for hours,
Now when i was trying to switch it on it was not booting up and not recogninsing the hard disc, I tried to reboot i failed,
than i tried to reload OS10 panther with the original disc no 1 it went on till the end and before finishing it showed error message. I tried to check and repair Hard disc and it was OK
I think the problem is with memory ( which is inbuilt in the board)
If i put additional memory on the slot and try to relad the OS will it work, or there is some other problem..
I need your help please guide me what i can do now?

1. Try putting in different memory.

2. Try booting off of original disks and running apple hardware test.

3. Schedule an appointment at the genius bar.
