Question about Apple iBook G3 Mac Notebook
My wife has two of those little notebooks, one an Acer which is about 13 months old and the other a Samsung which is a couple of days old (to replace the Acer), the Acer was continually plugged into the power, and then it wouldn't even turn on, no lights nothing, so we just assumed it was dead, now the Samsung has done exactly the same thing, and I think it's a power surge problem (we live in an older house). Are both notebooks ruined or is there something I can do?
Have an electrician check that outlet to make sure you got a proper 3 prong ground. Then buy the APC surge protector. They are made to prevent surge spikes in sensitive electronic equipment. Take the Samsung back to the store and exchange it out before your warranty expires. Just tell the store it don't work and you don't know why. Don't tell them you fried the onboard power ic chip from a line voltage spike in your home.
