Hi,
I just received a ibook g3 700Mhz from my teacher and I need to repair it.
Problem: no start up chime, no display
When I hit the power button, then hit the caps lock button, the green light comes on which means it's getting the power.

Solution?
I opened up the whole ibook today and tried replacing the screen, still nothing shows up. I don't hear the fan or harddrive spinning...I'm stuck.


Also, I have an ibook that doesn't even power up. Nothing happens when I hit the power button and the cap locks light doesn't come on. I tried replacing the battery and running it off the A/C power but still nothing.

Any help please?
QUOTE Thanks

The startup chime is the systems post test results...if you have no chime, you have no computer and probably need to get a new logic board
