    Old iMac OS

    With the way it is now, you could put X.1 on it, but I would highly recommend X.2 if you have it. it is much more refined then X.1 and should still run on 96mb of ram. It has been a while since I installed X.2 so i might not remember correctly, but it might tell you that you need at least...

    iBook G3, failed logic board, how to recover HD data?

    My fathers didn't seem like it powered on at all either, there was no chime or lights or sounds from it, but it did come on and mount as target mode. just to make sure it is off to start with, it might be a good idea to remove the batter and the power cord and then start from there to make sure...

    iBook G3, failed logic board, how to recover HD data?

    My father's computer had this demise and although it looked like it didn't turn on, it would still mount as a target disk mode disk, but there was no indication of anything on the monitor.

    I'm new to Macs so here's a simple one

    basically, yes, classic is OS 9. When the computer is booted in OS 9 it is referred to as OS 9, but when the computer is booted in OS X and running an OS 9 application, that is referred to as the classic environment.

    1999 iMac needs new video card (i think!

    if this is an iMac from 1999 it should be a G3 with probably the slot loading optical drive. If that is the case, this does not have a changable video card in it anyways. These computers are not worth putting any money into at this point since you can get much more powerful G4 computers, such...

    Powerbook 520c Idea

    The powerbook 520 has a scsi port on it, if it is going to be fairly stationary, would it be possible to find an old scsi hardrive kicking around? if you found one that was like 250mb or 500mb then you could run 7.6.1 on it with all the extensions and have a good stable system to use for your...

    Ibook G3 500, keyboard not recognized

    I could be wrong about this, but i don't belive that the 500mhz models (either the dual usb or late 2001) were the model that had the infamous logic board issue with the graphics. I believe they were the generation after (or maybe two). I have been known to be wrong before though. My dad's...
