  1. Hello, I am having problems with my Apple G4 Ibook. Yesterday when I went to start up the laptop, it got as far as the Starting MAC OSx screen and that is where it stopped. I took the battery out and let it sit for awhile but it is still doing the same. Is there anyway to fix this problem so I can back up my file before the hard drive goes. We have tried to boot the computer by holding Command (apple) + Option (Alt) + P + R., we tried the Disk utility check disk No Luck We are at a loss
    If we reloaded the MAC OSx can we do it without losing any personal data. I see there is an option to Archive files will that save the data. We have pictures and personal data we really would not like to lose

    An Apple repair center may help you, if you check with them... Maybe you already have
