So I have completely disassembled my new to me g4 and i bought a superdrive to replace the nonfunctional cdrw.If I plug it in then turn on the laptop it will not start. Just goes to blank screen. If I plug it in with the laptop is on I get the multicolor wheel and nothing else happens. I need to know the steps to do this right. The reason I took it apart in the first place was to replace the outer aluminum case which was in poor shape. Picked up some reasonably priced parts in better condition off ebay. This is my first Apple product so I'm just trying to get my feet wet. If more info is needed from me let me know. Thanks for the help!
