Well, I recently got a iBook G4 (1.33 Ghz and 512MB RAM) from a friend , which says it's broken. The most obvious problems are that the trackpad isn't working and that it "doesn't recognizes the battery". And it also can crash after some time (10 min or maybe 3 hr), but still boot's up on power.

The problem with the trackpad isn't a big deal, but I know that the battery's still OK, because my friend told me that it just stopped working (always 100% and full, then -zap-). So my guess is that it has to be the logic board.

I looked all this up on Google, but no luck. A solution would be nice .

After 5 times of installing still my PC hasn't boot up properly... -Regular PC user -

Well, it's a Dutch Mac so I translated it:

Information battery:

Battery installed: Yes
1st warning because of low power: No
Full loadcapacity: 4012
Remaining loadcapacity: 3525
Amperage: 0
Voltage: 16143
Number of cycles: 102

Some more info: When I plug out the power it's out in a zap.
