    Question TiBook dead_how do I wipe HD?
    I have a PowerBook G4 Titanium that won't boot at all. I figure I have a dead logic board, as that had been quirky for a while. How do I wipe the HD so I can sell the machine for parts? (Lots in very good or excellent condition). I've read on various sites that simply using a magnet on it will not work. Thanks for any advice.

    Does it power on?
    Do you have access to another Mac?

    The best way, in my opinion, is to purchase one of these: - Link Depot USB2-SATA USB2.0 TO IDE&#47;SATA Adapter Cable - Adapters & Gender Changers

    And hook the drive up externally to another machine and wipe it.

    You could also use a degauss-er if you have access to one.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
