Alright so, I was recently given a broken ibook G4(late 2004 generation) as a project. The thing was in 50 pieces, didn't have an LCD, keyboard or battery. So i buy all of those things,install everything correctly and now.. it's not booting. i have the os 10.3 installation cds, i've tried to boot with them (pressing option or C) but it freezes after the apple appears and the window comes up that should allow me to choose how to boot. i've taken out the ram and/or hard drive and the laptop with make the chime, and either start up and freeze at the desktop, or instead of showing the apple, it will show the old mac sign and a question mark or a big circle with a line through it. I'm wondering what's broken. would booting the laptop with the newer version ( os 10.4) work ? or is the logic board shot ? hard drive? i'm lost here, the thing isn't under warranty so i can't call apply and i'm very stubborn and won't give up with this ! please help !!
