I have been using my ibook G4 12" 1.2Ghz since 2005.

Recently it just won't start up. Whenever I press the power button the fan came on, the DVD drive (which has a DVD still inside might spin continuously), and the screen seem to have back light on but shows nothing.

If left in this state it can just stay like this forever, until the battery runs flat or I remove the battery.

Initially I thought the harddrive was dead, so I replace it. But still its the same.

Would appreciate if any one can give me some advice?

iBook, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
