I have a 12" Ibook G4 1.2 Ghz (late 2004). For the past few weeks I've been trying to find a solution for what seems to be a very big problem.
My Ibook stopped starting up all of a sudden, apparently after it slided in my bag after a hard turn in a car and got slightly hit in the back.
At first it wouldn't start up at all then, after I hit it and slapped it a few times in the back it started up.
Sometimes it stays on for a few seconds, sometimes for hours.
Someone told me it might be the logic board someone told me it might be the hard drive. In both cases I'm faced with a big expense since the computer is a year and a half old and I didn't purchase Applecare.
Apple wasn't very helpful and basically said that they won't do anything about it.
If anybody could please help me I'd be very thankful.
I've read around the internet about the possibility of putting some cardboard under the logic board? would that work?
Thanks a lot
Ibook only works after I hit it
