Submission + - iBook G4 logic board fix

beelsebob writes: Very well known is the iBook G3 logic board failure issue, however, less well known is that iBook G4s have been failing with the same symptoms almost as regularly. The G4 variant of the laptop is not covered by Apple's logic board repair program, thus if it dies, it's dead. Or so we thought, until recently. An enterprising guy has posted a fix for the problem that works simply by sticking a tiny bit of plastic under a chip.
