I just replaced the battery in my G3 700 iBook. Now my fan runs constantly. Anyone experience this, is this normal, or do I have a problem? Thanks for any help or advice.

Back on topic:

Is the battery identical to the original one? Or does it maybe have a different rating? (i.e. higher current or something?)

Have you checked the contacts? Maybe make sure nothing is on them...

And also check your energy saver settings...

OMG you people........
Ok the battery thing:
if you ordered it from apple it could just be that the battery heats up more than the old one.....I can't stand the thought of my ibook g4's battery going out.......
