Won't boot - question mark appears.
I hope someone can give me some advice.
I'm trying to repair a 12" Powerbook G4.
When turned on, it chimes and eventually shows the smiley face with a question mark.
I believe this usually means it can't find an operating system.
I tried booting with an an OSX install disc holding down the "C" key as the computer boots.
The CD whirrs and clicks for about a minute then it gets ejected.
I tried with another OSX install disc, the original software disc that came with the powerbook and the hardware test disc too. They all get ejected after about a minute.
I got a known good int HD and replaced the harddrive, but got the same problems.
I've reset the PRAM using the four keys.
So, any ideas? Is it time to let it rest in pieces?!
Is this a good question?
