I bought an ibook G3 laptop a couple of years ago and it worked well, but with one problem - it would go to sleep if i moved the screen a tiny bit inwards. This was irritating me so I browsed the internet looking for solutions and found a site with a detailed step-by-step guide on how to resolve it. There were a fair few positive responses in the feedback so i followed the instructions and it worked.

The solution was to rewire something underneath the keyboard - I did and it worked fine for about 6 months. After that something (I don't know what) happened. I moved the laptop from my table to my lap and it froze. I restarted it and it loaded up. I could hear it on but the screen never changed from black.

I got a new laptop and have been using that for a year and a half - but now I've forgotten the site I used to resolve the original problem! so no idea how to undo it!

If anyone has any idea how to fix this problem I will be indebted to you! Thanks in advance!!

QUOTE Thanks
