Alright guys, got new ram, airport card, pram, and harddrive online from this powerbook g4 a1106 I was given.

I have all the hardware and was looking to get into the open firmware menu.

I hold command option O F

nothing happens, just goes to this white screen and sits there forever.

I dont have leopard yet but am assuming i could still get into that OF menu.

Tried resetting the PSU by holding down the power for 5-6 seconds with no power connected.

Please Help

QUOTE Thanks
