Command+Option+Power is the standard button combination for restart. But it will only work if your comp is actually alive. It will not work in a situation described in this thred. Sorry for my weird english =))

Sorry, Restart = Control-Command-Power. My mistake =)

hey there,

i would better recommend that you get an IT technician that could help you in that issue because this is a bit complicated problem that you have there

Here in France I need to pay 80 Euros for the technician just to take a look on my PowerBook Titanium. It is actually as much as my Powerbook costs today =( So... if there any solution apart of visit to the technician I'll would love to try it
