i have an ibook 700 that won't turn on...
here are specs:
12 inch dual usb ibook 700 mhz (mid 2002), 640 ram, 16 mb vram, combo drive, 10.3.9

what happened was... actually nothing. i just shut it down to let it rest for the many months its been on for without shutdown. gave it about 10 minutes and pressed the power button and nothing. not even a bong or anything. the display didn't come on, the harddrive didn't spin up, nothing at all. so i unplugged it, took the battery out, put it back in and tryed again and nothing, again. tryed it without battery, only with power in, nothing. unplugged it, left battery out and left it for about 2-3 hours and still nothing. i don't know what else to do.

Same thing happened to my Powerbook a few months back. I pressed the Command key, the Control key and power button at the same time and it turned on. I would suggest you try that.

thank you for the reply.
just tryed command+ctrl+power but no cigar... :( along with many other combos.

::edit:: just started pressing things randomly and it started up! YAY! :D :D :D never been this happy ever.

thanks for the help Darwin LX. i think it was the multiple cmd+ctrl+power that actually did it. thanks alot for the help.
