My girlfriend has an iBook, 12" screen and 700 Mhz G3. It suddenly will not boot or even POST - it produces a beep instead of the normal reassuring startup chime and the display won't even come on. I searched Apple's site and found this beep to be symptomatic of bad or nonexistent RAM. Problem is, her iBook has 128 MB of SDRAM soldered onto the logic board. It's possible this chip is dead. I had her reset the PRAM and that unfortunately didn't do anything. Another possibility is that this iBook is experiencing the screen issues that Apple is offering the Logic Board Repair / Replacement program for. When I looked up details of the program, however, there was no mention of a startup beep instead of the familiar chime. The defective logic boards seem to go through the entire boot process fine - it's just the display adapter chipset that's out of whack. Has anyone experienced this beep issue? Before I have my girlfriend bring it into a shop (and charge her $99 just to look at it), I want to determine if popping a RAM chip into the slot may fix it. If the onboard RAM dies, is it even possible to get the iBook to see the additional RAM or am I barking up the wrong tree? If the display dies, would it produce the regular startup chime or would it beep? Thanks in advance!
