This is an older machine and probably sat unpluggged for a while. It does not seem to hold a charge. The date and time will not keep untill next day. The charger is not an apple . This is a Powerbook with 1gb memory ram. Does someone know how to trouble shoot this?Thank you!
The pram battery is dead and causing you to lose the date when it powers down. Your main battery is likely toasted as well. Until you get a usable battery, you won't know the condition of the charger, but if you are able to boot with the charger I would assume that its okay.
