I have a power book g4 12 inch running on os 10.4.11  All of a sudden the unit upon startup gets stuck on the loading stage and does not continue with start up.  Sometimes it does not even load at all.


Ran a test of the Hard Drive and it says its ok.


Sometimes the unit does not even give you a picture just a faint sound and the only thing you hear is that the unit is on by it showing the caps lock light on.


When I remove the external ram the unit will start again but will not finish the start up process.


I have used 10.4.8 recovery disks and block letters apear on the gray screen saying that it cannot find the correct driver.


Would anybody know what is going on with this unit? Thank for your help.

PowerBook, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
