I have replaced the original optical drive in my ibook with a combo drive. Everything went fine as while I use my ibook on battery. Then I found out that whenever I plugged the adaptor in, the ibook would shut down instantly and ti forgot the time and date. Weird!
The battery wouldn't recharge and when it became flat that was the end of it because the ibook wouldn't start up on DC power.
I went to the technical service and asked them to test the adaptor and they told me it was good. Then I replaced the CD-IN board because I thought that was where the problem was, but I was wrong.
I'm going to take it and have it serviced but I wonder if there is something I could look at, before I take it to the shop.
Perhaps there's something silly that I forgot to assembly?
