I have a 12" iBook G4 with a broken screen. So, I cannot see anything on the screen, but till a couple of hours back I could hear the start up chime. I connected it to an external monitor to see if it shows anything. Nothing came up on the screen. So, I pressed all combination of buttons on the keyboard. After that nothing is working. The numlock key lights up when I press F5 and not F6. I inserted a CD, but it doesn't come out when I press F12. The Caps Lock is working fine. Any help will be appreciated! I want to use my iBook with an external monitor.
