The only thing that might work is to use it as a desktop with an external screen.
Thanks, I'll do that. I've taken other computers to them, in fact, when the kids dropped this iBook a couple of years ago and broke the hinge, the guys at Fact were quick to fix it.HI Margaret, Im also from Regina. My girlfriends iBook was doing the exact same thing, and apparently it was fairly easy to fix. Take it to Fact on broad st. and let us know what happens.
Thanks, that seems to be the consensus. I'll take it in on Monday and see if they guys in the shop will have a go at it. I guess I could order the parts and try to do it myself, but I always have screws left over when I try to overhaul anything so shop time is money well spent in my case.video inverter board located in the LCD screen is probably dead. The part is cheap on ebay but the ibook must be taken apart to replace the inverter.
Thanks for reminding me, I had to go out for a while so I didn't try that. The only monitor I have is hooked to my work PC and it's a very delicate situation, so I'll hook the iBook to the tv and see if I can get a picture there.Did you try the external monitor now?
Guaranteed not to be the problem.just a screw loose in the video - sounds like way less money to me.
