    I have an iBook G4 that I got from a friend. It was dropped once and since then it won't start up. When I turn it on I hear the chimes, and the apple logo and the rotating "loading" symbol show up but that's all. It just stays on that loading screen forever. It will stay like that as long as I leave it on. Anything I can do?

    Seeing how it was dropped, could be a few things. First thing I'd check would be the hard drive.

    See if you can reformat/reinstall the OS on it. If not, replace it and see if that helps.
