Hey everyone. I have a PowerBook 12" that is acting up. As the title says my PB will only charge for like 10 minutes after I reset the PMU. I have replaced the battery with an aftermarket one and just recently upgraded the RAM to 1Gig using Other World Computing RAM. It was shortly after replacing the RAM that my computer stopped charging but it didnt start acting up right after I installed it. The power cord is a little loose on the computer side when plugged in but with the way its acting up I'm thinking the logic board may be on its last leg?

Battery Information:

Battery Installed: Yes
First low level warning: No
Full Charge Capacity (mAh): 4890
Remaining Capacity (mAh): 1630
Amperage (mA): 0
Voltage (mV): 11361
Cycle Count: 37

AC Charger Information:

AC Charger (Watts): 50
Connected: Yes
Charging: No

Any input/suggestions are appreciated.
QUOTE Thanks
