    I have an iBook 500Mhtz PPC G3, 384 RAM, 10GB HD, Dual USB.

    Several months ago, I opened it up and it simply would not start up. No start up sound, no noise from the fans/HD/anything, motionless. Completely dead.

    I've held (many times) the PMU, and tried almost anything. Is there anything else I can do to get it to AT LEAST turn on?

    The battery is dead, and the charger is fine, but the battery won't charge. I tested the charger on a PB G4.

    I'd rather sell the whole computer as a working computer. I figured I'd get more money that way. Does anyone have any suggestions? Or do I need to sell it for parts?

    Is it working?
    Nope.

    No more money for you, Mr. Greedy.

    Okay..... Better question:

    Is there hope of me using it? Or do I take it apart and sell the Memory, HD, etc. I don't just wanna throw it away. I'd rather get SOMETHING out of it.

    Mate, just sell it for parts. You'll probably get more money that way. :)
