Thanks for contacting Fixya Support, I am glad to assist.

The issue may not be with the type of CMOS battery you are attempting to use, so much as what you are doing once you install the new CMOS battery.

You need to make sure that after you install the battery, before replacing the Air duct and closing the chassis, you press the SMU Reset button on the logic board then attempt to restart your Power Mac G5 and see if it makes a difference.

I would recommend you view the PowerMac G5 manual I have provided for you below, in order to get more a perspective on the process of replacing a battery in the PMG5.

Macbook battery dead, can it be revived?


Rechargeable battery have a limited life and unfortunately it sounds like your one has gone, so you really need to buy a new one. For a second opinion I would go to your local apple store and book an appointment at the genius bar and seek their advice.

My battery is fine... I just need to know how to get my laptop to where it will charge to where its completely charged and not JUST turn on when the cord/battery is plugged in. ...


Try out this application http://www.coconut-flavour.com/coconutbattery/ this will help you diagnose battery problems, it's free software. Newer versions of OSX will tell you if the battery is bad or not.
It sounds like your battery is not charging fully which usually means that your battery is starting to go bad. You should probably take this into an Apple Store for a replacement battery.

The computer will only work on main power


if using osX: while connected to power, go to the apple (upper left hand), about this mac, more info, and then power on the left side of the system profiler. this will give you info about the battery. If the laptop is less than 3 years old, call apple and see if they will cover it under the Repair Extension Program for batteries.

My computer would not charge. I have an appple powerbook g4. I bought a new battery. I put the battery in. It charges. Now the computr tries to turn on it makes the start up noises but the screen is blank....


Hi, sorry to hear you are having problems,
Are you saying that your Mac was working fine with the dead battery but then when you put in the new battery, the Mac died?
Well, if that is the case it might be possible that the battery ran down to ZERO and the mac's internal battery also is dead so, it does not even know what hard drive to boot into...
So, with the Mac Shut Down, hit the power on button and then VERY QUICKLY, press the ( alt ) key and hold it until you see a blue screen with a Big right pointing blue arrow and a circular arrow.
You can let go of the key, and the mac is now looking for suitable startup volumes to boot from...
You should see your harddive appear after a minute or so... If it does not appear, then either your system is damaged or your disk is KAPUT...
How old is your Mac? It is very very common for PowerBook drives to die after 4 years without advanced warning... :(
Good luck

Logitech mouse m-rn67 download required for mac osx 10.4.


Go this page, select your mouse and click on get software. then select Mac OSX from drop down and download the LCC software:
http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/398/&cl=us,en?prodcrid=398

If you do not see Mac OS X available from the drop down, then your mouse can only be used as a generic mouse, and is just plug 'n play.

Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions,please feel free to post them here.

P.S. – I would greatly appreciate a FixYa!rating if the solution I provided fixed or helped you resolve your problem.

Thank you for using FIXYA!
