View Full Version : Power outage and now ibook won't start...

Oct 2, 2006, 12:27 AM
I'm currently out of the country doing field research and just the other night, there was a power outage here and now my ibook won't start up. Of course, being in a "third world" country, I wasn't able to invest in a good power surage protector.

Is my computer dead for good?

I have a lot of work that needs to be done and my computer is essential here. Anyway, I can rescue my computer? I press the power button and it does absolutely nothing.

What do you people think might be the problem and how much am I looking at to fix this?

Lastly, are my data on my HD okay?

Your data is probably fine because the first thing to fry will be the power supply. As a stab in the dark (probably won't work), try resetting your PMU (http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=14449). However, I think you'll probably need to take this to a technician. Sorry. :o
