    Hello!


    I have an old ibook that i am considering resurecting.

    it's a 1ghz ibook, and i believe the video portion of the mother board has gone bad.


    does anyone know where i may find inexpensive, used/new parts for this computer?



    thanks,
    r.

    New parts can be found at www.ifixit.com
    Be aware though, you cannot replace only the video system of the computer, you also have to replace the logicboard aswell since they are on in the same.

    Best place to find iBook parts is another iBook. Look for one with something broken other than what yours has, and you'll save a bundle.

    :cool:
