    My iBook G4 fell off of a chair while open and it appears that my lcd is completely busted. Will add pic if I can figure out how. My question is which cords do i need to view what is on my hard drive? I am working on a desktop model iMac version 10.5.5. I'm not sure of the names of the ports as I am new to apple.

    I love my laptop and would love to fix it in time if anyone can help there as well. But for now i have important documents that i must submit and i just need to view them on another display so i can copy them.

    thanks!!

    Is the VGA end of that connector the male or female connection? And is there a way to connect that to my desktop? This iMac has a mini DVI. I have called apple and they gave me wrong information and I have the wrong connector.

    iMac doesn't have video in, you'll need another monitor.

    OP: you could remote into your ibook using the new remote program with leopard, or you could use a VNC program like chicken of the VNC, or use Teamviwer, or LogMeIn.com or something similar.
