ibook clamshell turning on, but not booting up????

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried a PRAM reset on your iBook (rebooting and holding down Command, Option, P, and R)? Or rebooting in Recovery Mode (holding down Command and R)?

Hi, my name is ***** ***** welcome to JustAnswer. I'll be the one to assist you with your question regarding your issue

When the charger turns from green to orange it just means that electricity is flowing to the iBook, it SHOULD turn back to green when FULLY charged again... Could you tell me more about what you are observing? Does anything at all come up on the screen? beeps? etc

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
