  • iBook G4 12" 800 MHz-1.2 GHz Hard Drive Replacement

    No hard drive icon usually means you forgot to reconnect the hard drive cable connector back to the main board, or if you didn't disconnect it in the first place, then in wiggling with the hard drive, you popped the other end of the connector off...that's what I did :) .

    Don't forget to reconnect this connector. Otherwise you'll get the question marked folder blinking on your screen.

  • iBook G4 12" 800 MHz-1.2 GHz Upper Case Replacement

    First I released the plastic top. Then I removed the touch pad connector. With that, I was able to shift the top case down a inch so the power connector was exposed. I pressed a small screw driver along the middle on the long side of the power connector and twisted back and forth so it would wedge the connector from the socket. I left the speaker(long wires) wires connected and just flipped the case off to the left.

  • iBook G4 12" 800 MHz-1.2 GHz DC-In Board Replacement

    I left the DC board alone screws, cable and all for my hard drive swap.
