I am very new to the Mac world. Purchased airport extreme card online, tried to install it myself. When I tried to power up my iBook, nothing. Black screen. Had to remove the airport extreme card to make my mac operational again. Please help, I am just a rookie. Thanks.

Hello,

Did you by chance insert the card backwards, or upside down?

What kind of iBook do you have? If it is one of the older older ones, it might not be Airport compatable.

Let us know.

OMG! I'm having the exact same problem! I bought the card on Sunday and I tried to install it yesterday. I followed the instructions written on the iBook and on the guide included in the box and nothing, it doesn't power up with the card on! That is SO weird...

Please help me. And thank you very much in advance!
