    Hi Folks,

    I just purchased a brand new old 15" A1106 Powerbook 1.67GHZ powerbook and it has a battery that is recognized and the charger is recognized but will not charge at all, any ideas? i know this model has had issues like this in the past but just wondering if there is a DIY fix.. Let me know thanks :)

    What is the condition of the battery? These powerbook batteries are notorious for giving out, even though the computer will still "recognize" them. Download the program coconut battery (if you haven't already) and check it out. Oh, and the power adapters are HORRIBLE... I've been through 4 of them (but luckily I got a decent battery that, after 6 years, still manages to hold a charge for a whopping 25 minutes
