    I enabled Screen Spanning on my iBook, does that void my AppleCare?

    Not if you disable it and reset pram and all other stuff before going to see apple. I saw this question asked before in the forum.

    I answered his question but don't actually know how to do it :rolleyes:.

    I just had heard the question asked before.

    Allot of people seem to have bought this REV of the iBook.

    I think technically it voids the Applecare agreement, but, in reality, if you turn it off before sending in the computer for repairs, they have no way of knowing that you did it...and it really doesn't cause problems (whatever people say) anyway.

    I've had problems of the iBook's screen going to 800x600 occasionally on reboot with Screen spanning doctor. Minor trouble but annoying when you want to simulate built-in screen spanning.

    Reset PRAM by pressing

    Apple (command) + ALT + P + R

    Hold them down on boot, after the first boot beep the machine will force reboot again.

    Thats the PRAM reset.
