    You might check the contacts, both on the battery and in the 'Book. If
    you aren't getting solid contact, you might get similar symptoms. Or the
    battery might be loose in the bay.

    Just how hard did you bump the computer, anyway?

    There is a battery reset application made specifically for the
    Wallstreet and some iBooks. Worth a try.

    yes, i've tried it, but it doesn't work on the Li-Ion batteries. It was
    created in 1999.

    I find it strange that it wouldn't work with Li-Ion batteries. The
    Battery reset 2.0 utility was made for Wallstreets and some iBooks, all
    of which have Li-Ion batteries. Every PowerBook since the 3400 (1997)
    has shipped with a Li-Ion battery.

    Hmmmm, then I'm stumped. My other question is why both components of the
    Battery Reset program aren't getting installed on my G3 when I run the
    installer. The Battery Reset element goes into the Utilities folder, but the
    Battery Updater element does not appear in my Extensions folder, or anywhere
    else on the computer. I wonder if this is preventing Reset from completing
    the job?

    Maybe someone could e-mail me the Battery Updater extension for a G3 (not
    the iBook Battery Updater!). Thank you.

    another common problem: the s under the battery must be just right, not
    to tight, not too loose, try this, it cured my problem

    Basically, the extension was rolled into OS 9. "PowerBook G3 Series
    owners with Mac OS 9 installed may still want to install the Battery
    Reset 2.0 software to get the Battery Reset application. This
    application will reset a battery which may have been damaged in a
    certain way. The Battery Reset application is not needed, and will not
    work on an iBook or PowerBook (FireWire) computer."
