So I bought a "non working" iBook G4 off of a guy at work who didn't want to deal with it for 30 bucks. it booted once in a blue moon to the folder/questionmark. Otherwise it had classic fan of death symptoms, no screen activity, just whirring fans. one time it booted to the question mark and I put in my tiger install DVD. the screen got distorted and I restarted. fan of death and now I can't get it past there now. I opened it up and the HD cable was a little loose but that didn't fix it. I tried the 'splinting' idea that everyone told me to but it didn't seem to help. this is my last cry for help before I just give up on this thing, sigh. Would the genious bar even be willing to help me do you think? anyone have any ideas? thanks!
