    My 2002 iBook G3 notebook with OS X3.9 started acting up on me finally!:eek:
    2 days ago i turned it on and it sounds like it is starting up normally, but when the screen comes on, it just stays lit up and black - i tried everything, from trying to adjust the brightness, to restarting it a zillion times to completely draining the battery and then restarting it again,......nothing seems to work right! Can anyone tell me what could be wrong, please? :confused:
    I thought it may be the backlight, but then the light does come on, and STAYS on - the apple logo on the back stays lit up even when i close the notebook.
    I'm not too much of a techie, so could someone please tell it to me like a child?

    Well, try booting from the restore discs. Does it get any further? Also, try resetting the PMU. :)
