    Why are PowerBook 3400s (and especially the power boards) so unreliable?

    That powerboard is the issue on mine. It starts squealing and wont boot up. The last one i had worked until one day the display wouldn’t turn on. At least i made a bunch of money selling the parts.

    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
