Hi mollie,

It's quite common for these computers to arrive with a dead battery, the short battery life, is also a known problem, you have to either keep it plugged (But then why did you get a laptop), or you can buy a new battery. I know it sucks.

What you could do is that you could look around online like on ebay or on a great site called www.ifixit.com . That is a great site and they have a lot of great parts for both mac laptops and iPods/iPhones.

Good Luck!

My old blueberry iMac won't come on. I've changed power cords and tried different keyboards. No lights come on. Could it be the power supply? If so, where do I get one and how easy to install?


This is usually due to the BIOS/Clock/CMOS battery dying. If the battery is dead, it won't start up at all.
Check out YouTube for instructions on opening your model, and replacement batteries are available at just about any Radio Shack, or online at various places. These guys may have them, too: http://www.headgapstore.com/

I own a ibook G4 1.42 ghz and the battery no longer seems to charge when plugged in. I recently purchased a nupower battery and it worked great. Should I try an external charger?


I'd try another AC adapter first. It's not unknown for them to go bad and no longer deliver the power necessary to charge the battery. It's really unlikely for the charge circuitry internal to the iBook to go bad.

Mac notebook won't turn on, completely dead. I've held down the power button and it still won't start. It is plugged in to the wall and it is only a couple months old


As this is a month old I can tell you if the Ident is right a Blueberry Ibook is not a couple of months old, its around 10 years old. If this is just new to you, the possibility is that the power adapter has failed. Remove the battery from the bottome and wiggle the cord in the laptop while holding the power button down. If you hear a chime, either the jack or the cord is no good. If not you need to get the cord tested. If you have a meter you can do this, if not you have to take it to someone or buy a replacement.

Apple iBook Blueberry power problem


Hello,
This means the system software installed is incomplete. You may simply reinstall MacOS 9 (or MacOS X up to 10.3 for non FireWire clamshells, and 10.4 for the SE models).

Apple iBooke Blueberry power problem


It is a system problem. There is only really one way to fix this.

You'll need to start your mac up from the original OS install disk.

You can then use the disk utility to see if the OS can be fixed or you might need to re-install the OS. Once you have started up from the install disk you might be able to see your drive. At this stage if you have not already done so you should back up those important files.

IBook Blueberry connectivity problem


I believe that your problem is related to the OS 9.2 you are using, it has quite a few problems, I recommend you upgrade to a newer version, maybe OSX 10.3 or 10.4

I-mac power faliure


I'm thinking that your battery in the iMac is dead or very close to being dead. Or your power cord is no good anymore or your power supply is on the verge of being dead. Hope it helps.
