    Powerbook... I think it might be dead...
    Ok so when I got home from work last night my power book would not start up. I took the batt off and unplugged it. Put it back together and nothing. I held option + command down and it made a beep sound once and thats all. I tryd to zap the p ram but could not get it to boot. I am going to see what the apple store says.. What do you guys think? Think its dead? Any ideas?


    RIP- Powerbook g4 500mhz

    Well, it's not looking good based on what you're describing, but hopefully you'll get lucky and it'll just be a bum AC adapter.

    Contact Apple. They never screw you.

    Try resetting your power management unit (PMU) by holding down Shift-Control-Option-Power

    I had a similar problem with my iBook that was cleared by that.
