    Powerbook 1400c battery charge.
    Hello this is my first first post. I own a Powerbook 1400c/166 with external video card from newer, but no G3 upgrade. The main question I have is the light on the right corner of the screen does not light up, unless in sleep mode. Also, I don't seem to be getting it to charge at all. The only time i noticed other wise with the light was after I removed the HDD it turned green. Once I put the HDD back it went back to not turning green. Does anyone know how to get the Powerbook to charge. Thanks.

    Yes, that's the sleep light.

    The computer is thirteen years old. The battery is almost certainly stone dead.
