Title:

narcolepsy problem on PowerBook?

Text:

Hai there,

I bought a Powerbook G4 15 1,67 with no sound, no lcd, fans are not working, it shuts down (or goes to sleep and does not wake up) after 5-10 minutes: so heat prob. i quess, or DC-IN/Sound board prob of course. I'll let you know how things work out.

Any suggestions?

Update: in the mean time i discovered (by googling: narcolepsy) that by removing the left ambient light sensor the powerbook works about 50 minutes, and then shuts down, without any warning.

Tried to get the fans running but no luck. Still nou sound, but headphones are working

also: when i attach the single layer DVD unit the PB won't start up, and therefore my question is: should it be a DL DVD drive at all means?
