my problem: i've got a powerbook duo 230. with a new type3 battery (empty) and system 7.5.3 istalled. the duo doesnt load this battery . starting the duo with the battery plugged off, then inserting the battery, the battery loads for ten minutes, but then stops.

how does this happen ?

any workarounds ?

is it possible that the powermanager is dead ?

tried even to reset the powermanager via open the powerbook and plug off the backup-battery for 20 minutes.

thank you very much for your advice !
