    Exclamation Help a new mac user out?
    So, i recently just purchased a used ibook that had crashed.I dont know much about computers (especaily macs...) but i knew enough to use the system restore discs and get it up and running again. So everything worked smoothly.... Until it was about to finsh the second disc and it told me somthing about the display not being right. Now me being a complete idiot i dident read it and quikly hit ok trying not to miss any of starship troopers.
    It runs fine. Except for the screen.
    Help would be greatly apriciated!

    Wierd, did you try going to System Preferences, Displays and selecting a different resolution? The resolution for that iBook should be 1024x768.

    Only one resolution? I'm a new Macintosh user too, but I can tell you that it should have more than one resolution, four at least. Are you sure the Graphics driver is installed correctly? Try and download it from Apple's website if you are uncertain.
