I recently bought an iBook G3 on eBay. It's in good condition and starts up when the button is pressed. The chime is heard and then a grey screen appears with a smiling face on a mac screen. It then has a screen showing the operating system "MAC OSX" After this however it sits on a blank blue screen and goes between the loading icon and a plain mouse icon. It seems to be loading but has been doing this for hours now. I have tried restarting the iBook several time but the same thing happens.


What is the problem and what should I do to solve it? thanks.
