Hello,
i recently got a new drive (Hitachi 120 gig 5400RPM) form my powerbook G4 cos the old one is dead,
i opened the powerbook and fixed the new one, when i power on A grey screen appears and flashing in the middle of the screen is a folder, i tried booting from the dvd holding the C key, even tried the ail key, and it still takes me to this screen with the folder, then the MAC face, and then a question mark.
and i keeps flashing, i tried pressing alt key while this folder was showing and it show a a big lock and a place to put in a password, am confussed,
i tried entering all the passwords i've used on the mac before but nothing............

Your media is bootable, right? You might want to check to be sure the disk is install correctly.

Are you holding down the C key from the second it makes the chime noise?
