    I just obtained an Ibook G4, it was my cousins, and it had crashed, so weeks later he gave up and bought a Imac (its sweet :p).

    Anyway, the Ibook will turn on, boot up like normal. i had it turned on for about 10-15 minutes, and it just powers off. I had it plugged in, and it obtained about 11% battery, so I don't think it dies from battery shortage. Something i did notice, the battery charger cord, from wall to brcik is a 250V wire, while the brick it self needs about 100Volts. It isn't the cord that came with the Ibook. Could this cause the Ibook to shut down? Is there anyway to fix this problem. Am I experiencing something that has nothing to do with the charge?

    Any input would be awesome. Thanks!

    Look up the guide on how to configure the battery.
