6-Month old 15" 1.5ghz G4 PowerBook.

I opened her up tonite and saw a squigly through the bluetooth icon. When i click on it it says BlueTooth not available.

Any suggestions? Has my PowerBook done something wrong :eek: . It would be the first time :(

I presume you opened it up from sleep mode?

Try rebooting. It's happened to a few people, and rebooting seems to fix it.

And next time some hardware goes offline, try rebooting before asking.

I did try rebooting a few times before posting. Still no luck.

common problem with Powerbooks... you need to zap the PRAM... Reboot the computer and after you hear the chime hit "Command(Apple Key) + Option(Alt Key) + P + R" you should hear a second chime, computer should boot normally, with bluetooth :)

Power down. take the battery out. wait 30 seconds. put the battery back in and reboot. BT should be back in action.
