iBook stuck at start up screen
Today i powered up my iBook G4, after a long time of waiting for the blue bar on the start up screen to reach the end, it became stuck once it had reached the end, i left it for a hour or so on this screen, and it hasn't got past it, i did a hardware test, and everything is fine, although it took about 8 minutes to complete the 'memory' test, so i'm thinking it could be a RAM problem ?, what do you guys think ?
EDIT: Just used disk utility and apparently there is a problem with the disk, that it can't fix, so i'm gonna have to reinstall OSX

Woah woah woah. If Disk Utility can't repair the drive then it can be a pretty good warning that the drive is on the way out and shouldn't be relied upon for anything worthwhile. Either buy a new drive or keep everything very well backed up 'cause this thing's probably on its last legs.
Some things are better mad...
