I want to reformat the hard drive and install a more recent operating system like Ubuntu to my Apple Power G4.But I found out that my notebook would not turn on I already tried to charge the battery for good 4 hours but it doesn’t giving a response.
Does the adapter is shot or the battery itself shot? Here’s my UFO/yo-yo style model adapter: M7332/ SR# 1191804177.What could you recommend about this? Do I need to replace the old battery?
And can you give me some suggestions if what is the cheapest battery because I just only have a limited budget.

The problem may be either with the adapter or the battery itself, and therefore you will need to figure that out as follows:
To check if the adapter is faulty, you will need to obtain another adapter and connect it to your computer and see if it will be able to charge. In case the computer is able to be charged then you will conclude that the adapter is faulty. You can alternatively try using that adapter on another computer and see it works properly on the other computer. In case it does not then you will conclude that the adapter is faulty too.
As for the battery the procedures above will help you determine if it has a problem. In case the adapter works fine when you use it on another computer, then that will mean that the battery is the one that has a problem and therefore you might need to replace it.
