    The Powerbook Was given to me and it doesn't turn on. I opened it up and noticed it didn't have a hard drive. I formatted one and installed it and now it still won't power up. I've tried all the reset suggestions and it still won't start. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, Thank you.

    If it doesn't do anything and it's plugged in, it may have a dead logic board.

    This may seem like a really basic question, but is the power cord lit up? If you're not getting any power, you definitely won't start up. You might also want to check the battery indicator light to see if your battery can hold a charge.
