Hi, I just wanted to ask if my dads old PowerBook Duo 230 is still alive or not? I found it at his house and the only thing left of it is the docking station with the powercord and the laptop itself. I tried to plug it in an turn it on when the laptop is in the dock. I can hear the apple Gong but when I take the portable out and i want to boot it on its one nothing happens. The machine itself looks in great shape from the exteriour but I dont know if all the parts inside are still OK. What are the few things I could do to check if the motherboard, HD, battery, is still functionning. I would love to get this machine running and install Photoshop 2 an play about a little. Fingers crossed.
