Einleitung

You can install hard drives up to 12.5mm thick.

    • Turn the G4 over.

    • Remove the eight Phillips screws from the lower case.

    • Using your thumbs, slide the lower case away from you.

    • The lower case may stick in the front on a tab just above the center of the DVD drive. Be careful as you work the case off, or you may break the thin strip of plastic just above the drive.

    • Lift the lower case off.

    Please do steps 7 and 8 before you do 5 and 6, because opening the lid without the bottom plate screwed in place easily breaks the plastic around the powerbook as it is pretty fragile after 20+ years. Mine broke even further as it already hat started an to get the bottom top screws back on I had to flip open the display, beg for it not to fall off and let it hang over my table, so the stress from the hinges would be released. It all fit back together, but is broken more than before, changing the PRAM battery (it’s under the dvd drive) went well and the laptop finally turned on again :)

    • Grasp the orange ribbon cable and disconnect it from the hard drive. If the connector is tight, gently rock it from side to side.

    • Be sure to pull evenly on both sides as uneven force may damage the hard drive pins and render your data inaccessible.

    • If you are installing a new hard drive, we have an OS X install guide to get you up and running.

Jeanette, you have to disconnect the small batteries from the PMU unit. Then you have to plug in your power supply and reconnect the small batteries to the PMU unit.

Good luck
