    Hey all i bought a lot of ibooks and need help finding out what the problem is. I know alot about clamshells but not anything about other ibooks. so if anyone can tell me what the heck is going on i'd greatly appreciate it. Ok, well when i went to install an os it went fine, and after it was done it went to reset and froze, so i held down the power button and it turned off and i turned it back on, and the screen came up blank (picture) and then i waited and got frustrated and just turned it off and came back to it and turned it back on to take some pics of and sell but this screen came up (picture) anyone know what the heck is going on? any and all help is greatly apreciated. Thanks.

    It's a kernel panic (OS crash). Check your RAM - try re-seating it or swapping the modules around. If that doesn't work, try reinstalling the OS, on a different drive if possible...

    Have you tried booting from the install disc that came with your iBook?

    This may or may not work but boot into Open Firmware Mode
    CMD+OPT+O+F before chime till a grey screen comes up with text, then type in these commands:

    reset-nvram
    reset-all

    See if that works if not let me know
