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?

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.

Well I would try that last one but i droped it off at apple... so they charged me 50 bucks to figure out whats wrong with it. Thanks for the info Aptmunich i will try that next time.
