post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I got me hands on a G4 ibook..My problem is when you power on it displays the apple and a bunch of lines that go around in a continuous circle. Anyone know what might be the problem?

That means that the system is loading up still.

A) Is there a CD in the cd drive?

B) Have you been using the laptop previously or is this the first time using it?

C) How long are you leaving the OS to load up?

If it dosent load at all and its the first time then you've probably got a corrupt OS there... Do you have the original CD's at all? Or an OSX cd?
