While I was on the internet with my iBook G4 the system froze for over 10 minutes so i did a hard shutdown of the system (held the power button) When I attempted to turn the computer back on, the start up chime played then showed the grey apple screen, attempted to start up then went to a blue screen and now stays that way.

I have attempted to change the PRAM and PMU to no avail, I also restarted in safe mode but all i got there was a different blue screen with no desktop icons.

Anyone have any idea of how I can get around this problem?

Same thing happened to a friend's iBook G4. She's asked me for help. Also there's a DVD in the drive, that won't come out.

Sounds like you both have the usual GPU solder cracking problem. Time for a new notebook or logic board. Or you can search around and find out how to resolder the cracking piece.
