Black screen on bootup and ding on startup
I have a PowerBook G4 1.67GHz running 10.4.11.
I worked on it and closed the lid. After some time opened, but it would not wake from sleep. Just got the black screen. I tried restarting. On startup I could hear a couple of ding-ding sounds (not the apple startup chime). I could hear the computer working, and see the light in front is on. I then tried the safe boot up but this time I heard more dings and nothing on the screen. I tried connecting it to an external source to see if its a screen issue, but no luck.
I then restarted and inserted my OS 10.4 disk, which went in. I tried to reboot from the disk, I could hear the disk spinning, but nothing came to life. And now the disk is stuck in the drive!
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Is this a good question?
