    bought old 12-in. ibook A1005/2002 (I assume G3) at yard sale today. screen is black, but hard drive mounts in target disk mode on my eMac, working well! how can i get system info for the ibook in target disk mode? all i see is the it's running 10.4.11, hard drive size and used/free space. i'd like to know RAM, CPU speed, etc. secondly, what could be wrong? boots up with chime, no fan/other noise, stays on and keyboard lights work, but screen is black. is it worth repairing? thanks to all.

    As far as what's wrong with it, it may be that the logic board has failed. iBooks had huge issues with logic board failures where the board would become disconnected from the graphics chip causing the LCD to no longer display the image.
