my ibook has bit the dust!?!?

hello!

help!!!

my ibook appears to have bitten some sort of dust!


it was working, i walk way, it was not....

it chimes when starting up, nothing is ever on the screen, i hear it responding to volume up and volume down... but nothing on the screen. it works in target disk mode, but when hooked up to an external screen there is nothing.


what could it be?

tried resetting pram.

thanks,
r.

Does anything show up if you hold down F2?

Was it bumped recently? Could a cable have possibly come loose?

Maybe try resetting your PMU too.

Try booting it off the OSX disks just as one last check to ensure it's not software-based and if that doesn't work then I reckon your best bet is to take it in to Apple and get it checked out. Hopefully it's just a loose cable and it's not a bad logic board.
