    Question Battery and Trackpad... dead
    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 .

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