On Mac iBooks the orange light comes on when it charges the battery. Once the battery is charged it turns green. Im guessing the other powersupply was aftermarket or broken. EIther way, if it starts out green - recognizes the battery isnt full - turns orange for a while - then turns green when the battery is full, then the computer and powersupply are working perfectly. Enjoy your iBook!
Disconnect the ATX main connector, bridge (with a wire clip) the green wire and any black (negative) wire, this should allow you to power up the PSU... now take a digital multimeter and measure the voltages on the 3.3v (orange), 5.0v (red) & 12v (yellow) lines, you will need to place the negative lead off the DMM on any black (negative) wire to achieve this...
If your PSU is off specification ie. more than 5% variance this IS your issue.
There should be 12v coming from the yellow wire and 5v from red. Open
PC and use a multimeter to check the voltage output connect negative
probe to the power supply casing and the positive to the red and yellow
wires from the molex connectors. If the readings are below the
mentioned voltages then the PSU is faulty. Note if readings can be
round off to the given values then the output is fine. cheers.
May be the power supply gor affected by the damage because the cd rom busted so better than trying to use the same power supply better get another new one because it may damage the other parts of the computer.......
