Hello all, I had turned on my Powerbook 540c yesterday and it worked fine (although I forgot to turn on the external CD Drive so it wouldn't boot initially, derp). After using it for a bit, I shut it down as normal, but later in the day (and today) it didn't turn on; it remains completely silent. Am I correct in guessing that the power brick finally bit it, or could it be something else? I have heard of recapping the Blackbird's power supply, though it requires cracking open the enclosure... Thank you!
I recently acquired an Apple Desktop Mouse II to use with my Powerbook 540c. While the tracking speed with the built-in track pad is fine, the tracking speed with the mouse, even at the highest setting, is painfully slow. I've opened up and cleaned out the mouse innards as best I can and wiped down the mouse ball with rubbing alcohol with little effect. Any advice?
