Back from the dead!

Problem: My Pismo's Lithium battery has been dead for a couple years now.
Over the past summer, I finally shelved my Pismo since I bought myself
a Dual PMG4.

A recent trip required the portability of my Pismo...so I decided to dust off
the 'ol laptop and guess what:

It won't boot up, nothing. Nada. Completely dead.

It wasn't the power supply, since I recently bought a brand new one. Over the
course of four years, I went through three power supplies, since the cable
was insanely flimsy.

Solution: I finally figured it out, by popping open the keyboard, right there you
see the Lithium battery.

I simply remouved this dead battery and PRESTO, IT'S ALIVE!!!

Now I have no excuse but to order a new PRAM battery.

Still though, I was actually thinking of selling/chucking this dead Pismo.

Glad I didn't.

P.S.

This is the very first thing I wrote with my newly reborn Pismo! I'd like to thank this site for giving me the ideas/inspiration to give my Pismo 'one last look' before I posted it as a dead unit on eBay!

Do you mean you powered it up with NO PRAM in it? I am curious because that would at least be a good test for me to try. THANKS!!!

Yep.

Unplugged the PRAM battery and now it's working like a charm.

Granted, the clock is completely useless and I have to reset the time each time I restart the system.

This weekend, I'll be picking up a brand new PRAM battery.
