    Powerbook 3400c powerboard

    My Powerbook 3400 i just bought does not want to stay on. I found out it is the powerboard under the trackpad that is bad and causing it to shutdown during startup. Is this capacitor related or something else? Thanks

    Opening Mac se

    I know this was probably posted but the issue is the screw inside the handle is stripped and I can't use the hex  tool to open the SE. Somebody put it in tight and I don't think there's another screwdriver that can fit under it. Is there another way to open it without breaking the plastics? Thanks

    on duo 2300c hd issue

    Hello my powerbook duo 2300 has been through 5 hard drives and every single one has stopped working after being used in this duo. I know these drives have limited life but I'm sick of getting new drives for this thing and it's too suspecious that good drives keep failing only in this machine...
