My G3 B&W it's not booting


If I stop using it and leave it off for a few days and then I push the power button it doesn't start up, nothing happens

so I have to open the case and push the CUDA button. It's my B&W gonna die soon?


Thanks in advance for any suggestion

    Your internal PRAM battery may be weak or discharged. Suggest you replace the battery. Check this site for battery part numbers and sources. Mac PRAM, NVRAM, CUDA/PMU & Battery Tutorial
