Changing the battery won't help. I have the same machine like yours, only
it's a FW 400 model, the last one that can boot into OS9. I've been running
my MDD DP for over a year now with an empty battery without problems, the
only "problem" is that after booting up I get the message that my clock is
set to a past date but as I'm connected to the net my clock shows the right
time and date.
Just saying. Good luck with your sick MDD.
Best regards, Jörg.
