Powerbook... I think it might be dead...
Ok so when I got home from work last night my power book would not start up. I took the batt off and unplugged it. Put it back together and nothing. I held option + command down and it made a beep sound once and thats all. I tryd to zap the p ram but could not get it to boot. I am going to see what the apple store says.. What do you guys think? Think its dead? Any ideas?


RIP- Powerbook g4 500mhz

Well, it's not looking good based on what you're describing, but hopefully you'll get lucky and it'll just be a bum AC adapter.

Contact Apple. They never screw you.

Try resetting your power management unit (PMU) by holding down “Shift-Control-Option-Power “

I had a similar problem with my iBook that was cleared by that.
