Dun dun dunnnnnn.....

I always hear of 2400s haveing GLOD problems. I think I shall not add one to my collection now. My 2300 has been performing flawlessly for years.

What's a green light of death? Is it unique to the 2400? Is it as bad as the death scream of a 1400?

It is usually when the PMU board fails. The green sleep indicator stays on a constant green, and there is no way to get rid of it.

No, any PowerBook will display it when it's PMU board fails. However, it seems to happen most often to 2400 and 3400 computers.

If by "death scream" you mean the hardware check failure chimes, then no, the GLOD is much much worse. A GLOD usually means very expensive repairs, if even possible, are coming your way. A hardware check failure chime usually mean your RAM is bad or something similar.

well the death scream is when the sad mac icon pops up after booting. It's a horrible noise. It has indicated a logic board failure on my 1400 twice in it's lifespan.

A PowerBook 1400 board failing twice is very rare and unfortunate.
