Ibook will not boot PLEASE HELP!!!!

Hi,
First the ibook booted then would come up with the kernel error: square box with "you need to restart your computer. Hold down the power button for several seconds or press the restart button......
I then booted to single user mode and ran fsck -y which eventually came up with the all clear "The volume Macintosh HD appears to be OK"
I then restarted the system which booted to the blue screen with some quirky graphics towards the top. It will now not boot into single user mode, just black screen or multi-coloured stripy screen. When booting from the CD drive the sceen is just blue or black.
Okay, I have connected the ibook via fire wire to a powerbook, and re-booted the ibook in terminal mode which brings up the fire wire connect symbol on screen.
After a while the system stalls showing part of the symbol and the connection is frozen. I have tried to re-install tiger using the powerbook to initiate as the ibook will not. However, it freezes at 50% of install.
I changed the ram to iliminate a ram failure, however... still the same.
While I was in terminal mode I erased the disk using the disk utility from the PB and then ran the install again... still froze.
This looks more serious than I thought. I'm now thinking that it could be the hard drive or worse. I have tried to use the apple support phone # and it does not seem to work, 1800 275 2273.
I'm having some real bad luck here. Any ideas?

I ran the apple hard ware test disc. The quick test found no errors. The extended test freezes up completely. Now I'm really stumed. The logic board came up with know errors.
When the system froze on the extended test. I falsed a re-boot. However the screen went black so I could not run the test again. It seems like a time thing... the ibook can only run for a short period before it freezes. Then it has to shut down for a while before it can run again

  • Ibook will not boot

    My ibook G4 will not boot up it satops at a blank white screen... I've tried resetting the PMU by using the shift-ctrl-option-power and restarting but no luck. Any ideas??
    Thanks

    Hi, and welcome to Apple Discussions.
    If the iBook is on, shut it off.
    Push the power button, and as the startup chime is ending, hold down the x key. This should allow you to boot into OS X.
    If this doesn't work, check out these links to articles on recovering from the flashing question mark:

  • IBook will not boot from CD

    Disk utility has found problems. Specifically it returned this info:
    Verifying volume “Macintosh HD”
    Checking HFS Plus volume.
    Checking Extents Overflow file.
    Checking Catalog file.
    Invalid node structure
    The volume Macintosh HD needs to be repaired.
    Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit
    1 HFS volume checked
    Volume needs repair
    I have tried to restart the iBook using the original restore CD, the original install CD, the Leopard CD, the Tiger CD and Norton Utilities CD. The computer will read the discs but will not boot from them so I can't find a way to repair the effected volume.
    Tried Parameter Ram but feel there are deeper problems; just don't know how to get to them.

    knateb, Welcome to the discussion area!
    Just for the record, your iBook shipped with a version of OS X somewhere between OS 10.4.2 and OS 10.4.4. Therefore it will never boot from a retail Tiger (10.4) disc.
    Have you tried resetting the PRAM?
    Have you tried resetting the open firmware? The procedure is
    Start up into Open Firmware by pressing and holding the Command-Option-O-F key combination during startup.
    At the Open Firmware prompt, type: reset-nvram
    Press Return.
    At the Open Firmware prompt, type: reset-all
    Press Return.

    You are having kernel panics as shown in this Apple doc.#106227.
    Do everything, in order, in Dr.Smokes Resolving Kernel Panics and don't leave out any steps.
    Quote from Dr.Smoke "My FAQ is a roadmap: start at the beginning and work through to the end, following the instruction in the order specified, including the "If all else fails..." section if a cause or resolution is not found in an earlier troubleshooting step therein"

  • Ibook will not Boot - goes to DOS, error message inside

    Hi folks,
    The old ibook (late 2004 model) is slowing down more and more, and yesterday refused to boot after crashing.
    I left it booting on its blue screen for a while and it eventually went to a black dos screen with the following message:
    SystemStarter[47]: The following StartUpItems failed to properly start:
    /System/Library/StartUpItems/PrintingServices
    - execution of Startup script failed
    Now i'm assuming the problem is with the start up script, so I've looked around and done a few things suggested.
    For example:
    1. Reset the PMU ~ Shift - Control - Option - Power, waited for 5 secs, then rebooted, same problem.
    2. Ran single user commands as detailed here http://missionitgroup.com/blog/?p=1490
    Tried this twice to make sure, same thing happened. When checking the disk for errors (/sbin/fsck -fy) it would not find any volumes.
    Also it would not run repairPermissions, it just kept giving me the options under diskutil, but not running the repair (Im assuming this may be due to it not being able to find any volumes)
    3. Someone has suggested running the Mac from its original startup OS X DVD.
    The problem is that there is a DVD (movie) already in the drive and pressing eject does not eject it.
    4. I put the ibook into Firewire mode with it attached to my iMac. The iMac could see the DVD that was in the ibook drive but could not see the ibooks harddrive.
    sooooo!!!!! a bit lost as where to go from here, any help would be greatly appreciated!?

    Drewdrops,
    That is a link for a SATA (Serial ATA) drive) which will not work. You need a PATA or Parallel ATA drive, also called ATA, Ultra ATA or IDE drive. The drive in the link you sent is also a 3.5" drive. You will need a 2.5" notebook drive for your iBook.
    After you get the new HD installed, you will have to boot from your Leopard install DVD, go to Disk Utilities again, select the drive in the list of volumes and click on the 'partition' button. select 1 partition (unless you would like more than one volume), make sure that "Mac OS Extended (Journelled)" is the format selected and then click 'partition'. You can then quit Disk Utility, and continue the installation. If you click on the 'options' button in the first install pane, you will see the button, pre-selected, that says 'installs OS X for the first time'. That is the correct choice.
    After the install is complete, you'll get the welcome window, set up your account, and get going on your iBook. Immediately go to software update in System Preferences and begin installing the myriad of updates. After each install and restart, return to software update again and again untill it finally says that "you are up to date". This entire process can take hours, but stick with it. One more thing that is very important.... After you are finished with updates, open Disc Utility in the Utilities folder that is within your Applications folder and drag that icon down to the dock. Open it, select your HD volume to the left (the upper one with numbers, not the sub-volume) and then click "Repair Disk Permissions". Apple recommends doing this after each time you install updates and generally at least once a month after that. The instructor in an OS X class that I once took, said that you should repair disk permissions every week.
    To me, all of you symptoms would point to a failed hard drive and a replacement would most likely take care of the problem. Are there ever any guarantees, though?
    Is there an Apple Store close to your location? You could make an appointment at their "Genius Bar" for a free check-up. They will look at your iBook, tell you what is wrong and how much it will cost to repair it at their facility. You are not required to have it repaired there. It's just s service they offer. Look at the bottom of the Apple Store or Support page. I believe there is information about making an appointment.
    Let me know how it goes.

  • Leopard not booting, please help!

    MacBook Pro
    10.5.5
    Was working normally last night, this morning it was behaving strangely and barely responding. Wouldn't reboot, so I held down power button.
    Now when it turns on it's stuck at the Apple logo with the spinning graphic. I hold Apple+V and see that it goes into this infinite loop where it says something crashed and saved the log to file.
    I'm able to boot into Single User mode and I ran fsdk to no avail. Here is what the log says:
    /Library/Logs/CrashReporter/mDNSResponder2008-10-16-113029Ares.crash

    I've done the fisk disk thing in Single User mode to no avail, and I booted with my 10.5 CD and Repaired Disk Permission, no luck.
    Please help. Most of the stuff I can get back, but I have a couple projects for work that I really need to get back.
    Any way I can get my OS back up without reinstalling? If no, then is there any way I can mount my MacBook Pro's hard drive to another system?
    Any help will be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    The mDNSResponder is a bonjour item associated with iTunes, Safari and other network stuff.
    Sounds as if you have some corrupted files in the Frameworks area on the HD.
    Can you boot into the Safe mode? That might disable the mDNSResponder.
    Unplug all internet connections, all other unnecessary peripherals, especially USB devices and see if that helps.
    I don't think your HD is beyond repair. Just some startup stuff is corrupted.
    As suggested, DiskWarrior might also do the trick.

  • TS1717 iTunes will not open- please help!

    My iTunes will not open.  I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but the same message keeps showing up when I try to open iTunes.   The error reads "C\Windows\system32\dssenh.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error.  Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support."  
    Please Help!!!

    Taken at face value, you're having trouble with one of the Windows OS dlls associated with Cryptographic Services.
    I'd first try the fixit from the following Microsoft document. (One of the things it does is reregister your copy of the dssenh.dll file.)
    You cannot install some updates or programs
    ... but if you still get the issue, I'd try an sfc /scannow as per the instructions in the following document:

  • My Iphone Will Not Restore, Please Help.

    Hello,
    I fell asleep while facetiming, I woke up and found that my iphone will not turn on, which is odd, since I was charging it. I then took it off my charger and then put it back on. The Iphone 4 then showed the Apple Insignia for about 10 seconds, then became a dark screen, then back to the insignia. It did this repeated flashing for a good ten minutes. I then took it off the charger and the phone stopped flashing and it became totally dead. I tried pressing the home button, and the top button, but there was no effect. I then plugged in my Iphone to the computer and put it into recovery mode. I tried to restore it, but it continually keeps getting an error (21). I tried it on a different computer, will not restore, but got a different error (I believe it was the error (1604)). I tried restoring it multiple times, I updated my Itunes to the latest version, I made sure my connection was well. I tried taking my Iphone off of recovery mode, but it did not work.
    I suspect that my problems are due to the fact that my Iphone will not stay on without being connected to a power source, and that is the reason for all the errors. I tried it on different USB ports and different computers. Please correct me if I am wrong, and please help me figure out what I should do next. I do not mind losing all my contacts, but I do mind if I have to spend money on a new phone, afterall, I barely even had this phone for a year.
    So Please, I am begging. Please help me and tell me why doesn't my phone stay on without being connected? Is it because I fell asleep while facetiming and because neither of us hung up it over-heated and killed the battery? Is there an easy way to fix this since I am technologically-impaired? Is there any hope for me and my Iphone's future?
    Any answer will be very much appreciated.
    Thank You.

    It sounds to me like you either got defective parts or otherwise did not make the repair correctly. We cannot help  with self-repairs here, the iPhone officially not user servicable, but you can ask for advice in the forums on ifixit.com, a site which is dedicated to those attempting their own repairs.
    Regards.
