Hi Alienlogic,

Several points here:
1) More info as to make/model, and type of powercord would have been helpful.

2) From your description above, it sounds like you have a faulty connection in the laptop's DC/Sound card (the small circuit board that the power cord plugs in to). You can sometimes get a temporary workaround by rigging a way to apply gentle pressure on the plug to keep it connected, say with a rubber band or the like, but the only real fix is to have the board fixed or replaced. Sooner or later, the workaround - won't any more.

3) With most iBooks and Powerbooks I've worked on, this involves nearly complete dis-assembly of the computer, and you have to find a working part, or be handy enough with a soldering gun and lucky enough to have a break that you can fix yourself.

4) Parts are for-sale on eBay, or from other parts resellers on the web.

If I can be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it accordingly.

Thanks in-advance,

Jon

Usb not recognized on macintosh powerbook g3


The Powerbook G3 will be using the original USB architecture and I suspect that your flash drives are using USB 2 and are not backwards compatible, so sorry I don't really think it is possible.

I lost my power cord to asus laptop, and my laptop wont charge with other power cords, so do I need to just buy a new power cord? or because it wont power up is there something wrong with my laptop?


You will need to buy another power cord for the exact model of your laptop. You can either find it in local computer stores, or you can search for it on ebay.com (usually search by laptop make & model, & usually buy from a top seller).

You need to replace the battery as it has expired.

How do I connect to the internet via WIFI with a MAC Powerbook G3 laptop?


The easiest way if your Powerbook doesn't come equipped with an Airport card or isn't capable of supporting an Airport card is to purchase this http://www.sonnettech.com/product/aria_extreme.html it slides into the PCMIA slot on your Powerbook G3 (the credit card sized slot on the side of your Powerbook G3). There's support issues and model variations on older Powerbook G3's regarding Airport Card support and they're not as readily available as a standard PCMIA wireless card. This is my best suggestion for your situation.
