Went into an Apple Reseller store and told them about the issue. They said it's a failed hard drive.
The seller is offering me a refund which I'll take, no point in spending more on it as it will probably cost more than I paid for the machine.

Does it need a certain drive? The ones I've replaced recently have cost less than $100.

The Apple guy said it needs the right drive for the right machine

The drive isn't anything unusual or Mac specific, it just takes a standard parallel ATA 2.5" notebook drive.

I'd definitely take the refund though, he sold you what he claimed was a "fully working" machine with a running installation of Leopard and it arrived nonworking. Who knows what else might be wrong with it after you replaced the drive.

Got another working Powerbook now Was actually about £30 cheaper than the broken one
Microsoft Office was bundled with it to.

I just need to get a new battery as the one that came with it is more or less dead.
There's just one thing that concerns me, I changed the wallpaper and added apps to the dock, and imported music to iTunes.
When I turned it on again after a few hours the desktop and dock went back to their defaults, and the music I ripped in iTunes was deleted but the stuff imported from an external drive remained

I looked on google for a solution, and one website said it might be because of a dead battery and something about CMOS??
