    The title says it all, today when using my titanium powerbook at the local library it died. It now does nothing other than charge the battery, but there is electricity couring throung its veins, as I turned it on and 5 minutes later the cpu was hot, but the fan did not turn on to cool down.

    What to do?? :confused: :confused: :confused:

    Sound like the LCD died. Try hooking it up to a second monitor perhaps? Might have to resort using it as a desktop machine, unless you have AppleCare... and that's only plausible if you bought the extended plan and a TiBook between Aug-Nov 2003. At least I *think*the ti's were discontinued in nov 03.

    You can get LCDs off of eBay if the external monitor thing works.

    no, not the lcd, it flickers for a fraction of a second as power runs through it but then silence, no hard drive spins, no fan, an I still have a DVD stuck inside.

    Failing sticking it in a tomb for the weekend and waiting for something to happen, seems like Applecare quote time - or replacement.
