A friend of mine just gave me an outbound notebook with 3 dead batteries. Unfortunately, the AC adapter was missing. I was wondering if you would help me get this puppy going. I've performed a search on the web, but have not come up with very few answers. I also want to know if the thing works before joining the outbound support group for $25. Any answers to the below questions would be appreciated:
1) Do you know if I can use a radioshack multivolt adapter or should I get a charger for the batteries and use them? These batteries are 12 V, old, and may be discharged beyond reconditioning.
From this site, http://www.applefritter.com/node/view/2686 , G4from128k states that it is a 22 V adapter 1.27 amp with a (+) center pin. If I can't use radioshack, were can I find a -cheap- replacement?
2)Will the computer recharge the battery when hooked up to AC power or will the batteries need a separate outside charger?
3) Is 7.0 the latest system that can be installed? Are these machines 32 bit clean?
Once I get the computer up an going, I'm going to try to find out what kind of processor/RAM/HD it has and try to install the latest system that the computer will accept. Hopefully it has an 68030 inside
Thanks in advance
