Won't power on?
I have a 600MHz iBook (16VRAM). It currently will not power on at all. No fan, no clicking, no noises whatsoever. It previously would only start up if plugged in and then you could run it off the battery, but would not start off battery alone. I had it unplugged too long (while powered off I think) and the battery dried up. It's now at full charge again, but nothing I've done has had any effect.
The light glows green when plugged in, and is able to fully charge the battery, but right now this is the extent of what this computer can do.
I've had it apart, DC is attached fine, nothing loose or bouncing around. Tried to reset the Power Manager, etc. It seems dead, I'm suspecting the logic board, but because it was working (somewhat) fine before I thought I'd ask for some suggestions.
I now have the computer almost fully apart. I removed the hard drive. Is there a way to test without having to put everything all back together and without putting in another hard drive? Perhaps with a bootable usb drive or OS install cd?
I don't want to waste my time putting it all back together again, only to find out that it was the logic board all along... :(
Is this a good question?
