View Full Version : iBook Issues.(tractpad-keyboard don't work)

Dec 7, 2009, 12:41 PM
Hey all,I have a iBook Clamshell 466Mhz. PPC G3 with 576MB ram,40GB HD,Airport,and 10.4.11.
my problem is my keyboard and tractpad stopped working after I opened it up to replace the CD drive with a slot load superdrive,I don't thing that was the issue because it had happened before but I played with it and it worked again.Oh,the number lock and caps lock lights are stuck on when you first hit the power button.The computer works fine with an external keyboard-mouse,but I'm mostly on the go and can't always bring a keyboard and mouse and be able to set them up with what I do.Anyone know how to fix it??I'd hate to think it's the logicboard since I did fix it once.I already was mostly convinced to sell it for parts and buy a iBook G4 or PowerBook G4 with the money and sell off some of my other stuff.But I'd still rather keep it.I already got talked out of my 80GB HD,now I'm stuck with a 40GB.:(

Does anyone know if it can be fixed?If not then it's being sold as parts.
