System Recovery PowerBook g3 Series


I have PowerBook g3 Series. m4753

Very old version, I know. But I likke the classic.

When I turn it on, it uploads. But after I see white screen with a diskette and a question mark inside. After 1-2 min, it turnes off. Also when the question mark is on my screen, i hear little scratches. Not so loud, right side but not CD.

If you could help me please, thank you.

Not good ;-{

Your hard drive has failed! The scratching noise is likely the head assembly rubbing on the disk.

You'll need to find a replacement drive which will be hard as the drive is an older PATA unit (IDE). Once you get the drive out you should be able to search for a replacement using the make and model info on the drive for an exact replacement. Finding one new will not be easy, more likely to find a used one.

Here's the IFIXIT guide you'll need to follow to replace it: PowerBook G3 Wallstreet Hard Drive Replacement. In addition, you'll need to find a copy of the older Mac OS-9 on a CD to prep up the replacement drive if you still have the grey disk that came with your system you'll be all set otherwise you'll need to hunt down a retail version of the software on eBay.

Given its age it's a nice show piece if it's not worn (collectible). If you are planning on using it I would recommend you put your pennies into a newer model (new or used)
