Yeah, odd thing about that. One of the fixes I've tried was resetting the
PRAM, as mentioned on Apple's support page. After many tries, I got upset
and left the battery out for a couple of days. When I re-attached the
battery, it still wouldn't turn on. Shortly after that, it got put in a
corner and forgotten till a week ago. I hooked it up, and after holding
in the reset button for 30 sec, it fired right up. Odd thing was, the
time was correct. Off course, I made the mistake of shutting it down, and
it hasn't turned on since. Thanks for the suggestion, though. I still
will probably look into replacing the battery (if I can ever get this
thing to power up again.)
Here's a question:
When the powerbook is plugged in, the green led on the top is lit up.
Every other time I press the reset button, the light will turn off. Oddly
enough, when it does run, the led is not on. I assumed the top led meant
the powerbook was on, but I wonder if that is incorrect. By chance, does
the led, or maybe something else, give off any kind of diagnostic codes
(like something similar to a pc's beep codes?)
Thanks in advance!
PS: Sorry, I wrote the original message on google (I was bored at work
with my dead powerbook). To avoid confusion, I'll write all the messages
from here on out at home instead.
