 Post subject: 17" PowerBook Battery/Boot Issue
PostPosted: Fri Jun 13, 2008 8:43 pm 
I have a 17" powerbook that won't stay powered up after the battery ran out. It will boot up and I'll see my desktop for about 3 seconds and the screen goes black and can't be awakened. I thought perhaps the battery was completely dead so I removed it and attempted to boot up without the battery and I have the exact same problem. Someone please help! Sadly, my laptop has become almost as valuable as a limb. The unit is about 4 years old.

If it does the same thing when the battery is out of the machine, then you likely have a problem with either your DC-IN or logic board. You'd need to have the unit professionally diagnosed to determine exactly what the issue is.
