Ok, so here's the story on this iBook. The DC board on it had a problem in it - as in a broken nib of a power adapter. So, I crack the iBook open, replace that put it all back together again. No boot. At all. I checked my connections, they're all good. So, I try to listen for any noise at all. I do heard power going through the computer somewhere. However it is very faint. The HD or fan do not kick on. If I hold the power button down as in to turn it off while it's on, the buzzing sound goes away. I hooked up my keyboard. The caps lock lights up as well as the num lock. HOWEVER, the num lock lights up if I hit the F5 key, not the F6/num lock key.

This is all farther I've got. Right now I'm at a loss with this thing. Any suggestions? Plzzzzz...
