    pull the battery out, put it back in, plug in the ac power, turn on,
    try again.
    does the green light appear on the charging unit itself?

There was an issue with the ibooks and older powerbooks (wallstreet) that the pmu would stop charging at about 10%. Apple released an app to fix it,but you must be running os 8/9 to use the app. the apple download and description can be found here: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=60655

Hi Idgetwidget,
I don't think its broken. What your'e experiencing could be because there is no Operating System[Windows] installed on your Laptop! You can download the Operating Systems from this Microsoft site.

Hope this helps.Thanks!

To log on I have not used in a while and it ask for my password and even gives me a hint but what i thought was my pass is not working


There is no way you can use this accout without password but you can create a new admin account to use your computer.
Creating a new Admin on Mac Os X:
Here's how to reset your OS X password without an OS X CD.
the Working solution for me was to create a new admin
you can create new admin like this by deleting a specific file.

You need to enter into terminal and create a new admin account:

1. Reboot
2. Hold apple key + s key down after you hear the chime. (command + s on newer Macs)
3. When you get text prompt enter in these terminal commands to create a brand new admin account (hitting return after each line):

mount -uw /
rm /var/db/.AppleSetupDone
shutdown -h now


4. After rebooting you should have a brand new admin account. When you login as the new admin you can simply delete the old one and your good to go again!

Hope this helps. Please rate if you like my solution thanks

My iBook G4 has got a power problem.


You probably need a new battery but that machine should only get about 3-4hours with a great battery.

Macbook


I just ran into this issue.
The problem stems from the CD not seeing the SATA hard drive. I called Apple and they sent me a new Mac OS DVD. Hopefully you have the Apple Care or they will charge you for the DVD.

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

Not starting up


Hi, I' sorry to hear you are having problems,
Walter, I am confused, you say it is a brand new MacBook that shows signs of technical problems,... before installing any software program from the internet, please bring it right back to where you purchased that machine, they will be more than happy to get you back up and running.
Apple is very serious about their reputation and would hate to know that you are stuck with a non functional brand new macbook.
They should not charge you anything....
Now, if you are far from an apple point of service, and you say it is a brand new Macbook, can you reformat the hard drive without losing anything ?
If that is the case, go ahead and reformat the hard drive, or erase, the option is available to you in the installation process and then try it out, you should not have the problem anymore.
And please do not install any web program in the system other than Apple stuff to help manage shut downs or anything like that...
Well, good luck..
