    Hi all, I have a Powerbook G4 with me and it doesn't boot up. I am suspecting it is hard disk/ software error that is stopping it from booting up. Here is what I see when I try to power it up: White screen, Apple logo with the round circle with rainbow color. :)

    Do you guys think that is is a software error that is stopping it from booting up? The last thing I did was to install Windows Messenger for Mac! (Damn!)

    Now, I am thinking of trying to do a re-install using the disc that comes with my Powerbook purchase but I am at a lost of what to do. Can anyone please share with me the steps that I need to take?

    I've got a 'new' hard disk already, please advise on how can I rebuild my Powerbook!

    Thanks to all in advance!

    Cheers

    Uh sounds like your HDD it toast. If you want to save it replace the hard drive. There are lots of links on how to take it apart
