And if that doesn't work (but it really should), you could press and hold the on/off button until the computer turns off completely and once you turn it on it should be back to a standard light setting.mad jew said:On my iBook, I hit F2 for a while.
I generally do a complete system re-install and upgrade to get rid of localizations I don't need, etc.twoodcc said:what all should i do besides calibrate the battery and repair permissions? anything i need to look out for?
You didn't get the hdd bto?twoodcc said:thanks for the replies guys. i guess i won't bother with the hardware test.
i already have a laptop bookbag, that holds up to 15" laptop. i'm sure it will fit. but do i need a laptop sleeve also? seems a little too much for me, but i do want to baby this thing.
so far i'm loving it. if there's anything else i should know, just let me know.
i already transferred a lot of my files, so no reinstalling for me. i'm down to only 51 GB left on my harddrive, so i'll need ram and an external eventually.
i'll wait the 14 days at least before i buy ram for it, just in case. i can tell already that i need more ram though.
no, i couldn't afford it. and it creates more heat, takes more battery, i probably wouldn't notice a difference....i'm happy with the current one.Greenone said:You didn't get the hdd bto?
Well, when I said "generally" that refers to the 3 times I've actually purchased a system with OS XCmdrLaForge said:And how do you get all your files and settings on it?
I'd say get one. I've had a Crumpler Gimp for mine since I bought it but the Incase sleeve or the Tucano Second Skin look okay too. It just means that you can zip the laptop up and avoid any grit or dust you might have in the laptop case getting onto the Powerbook.twoodcc said:i already have a laptop bookbag, that holds up to 15" laptop. i'm sure it will fit. but do i need a laptop sleeve also? seems a little too much for me, but i do want to baby this thing.
