Hi YouBecha and wanderer,
Thanks for the answers. Wanderer, I bought a second 1200 that I put the old HD in. It worked fine for 3 startups then, it would no longer boot. The hard drive symbol shows at first showing it beginning to boot then it just drops out and stops. It would go farther with the boot process with the first retries, but, now just stops a few seconds into the boot. That leads me to believe it is a battery problem. I might be wrong, I don't know.
If it is a batttery problem, do either of you know which batery it may be and where I might be able to find a replacement?
