    Looks like a RAM or video problem to me, do you have some spare ram that you can put in it to see if that fixes the issue?

    Have you done a PRAM and PMU reset on it?

    No I haven't reset the PRAM how do you do that?

    Also, The video seems to work fine and the RAM was just upgraded to 320MB

    How much memory was in it? I suspect 128? and you added 256?

    Here is the article which explains how to reset the pram and the NVRAM

    These disks your trying to boot with, are these the original ones that came with the ibook? The recovery media are model specific

    No there burned from Nero on my pc. But they were working fine with 64MB of ram but it's way too slow to boot doing that.

    That is more then likely the problem. You should be able to find clamshell recover discs on ebay for durt cheap. Like $5. Or else you can get a full install which will also be really inexpensive for 10.2 discs.

    Also check the RAM requirements. I don't know if the clamshells can handle 256mb. Could be wrong, it has been forever since I had a clamshell in my possession.
