Battery charges, startup chime... blank screen, no fan.
This iBook G4 has had three DC-in cards, so when my son said it wouldn't start I figured it was time for yet another one. But with a new charge cord, the battery charges fine; all four green lights.
However, when I start it up, I get nothing on the screen. I see a keyboard light come on and I hear the happy-Mac chime, but there is no whirring sound and the screen stays blank. No white screen of death or flashing disk with a question mark, which I would expect from a dead hard drive. I popped it open and checked connections, but I didn't find anything loose.
I'm stumped. What should I try?
Is this a good question?
