    I have a iBook G4 with the following spec. 14” Screen 933 MHz Processor / 384 MB RAM / 40 GB HD, OS 10 panther
    Untill now it was working perfectly, last week in was on and hanged up and was heated for hours,
    Now when i was trying to switch it on it was not booting up and not recogninsing the hard disc, I tried to reboot i failed,
    than i tried to reload OS10 panther with the original disc no 1 it went on till the end and before finishing it showed error message. I tried to check and repair Hard disc and it was OK
    I think the problem is with memory ( which is inbuilt in the board)
    If i put additional memory on the slot and try to relad the OS will it work, or there is some other problem..
    I need your help please guide me what i can do now?

    In the land of no hills and red dirt.
    1. Try putting in different memory.

    2. Try booting off of original disks and running apple hardware test.

    3. Schedule an appointment at the genius bar.
