    There's some dedicated processor on pbook mainboards and some other voodoo that goes on. Here are my suggestions:

    1. Zap the PRAM. Do this by holding cmd-opt-P-R during boot. I think it'll BONG more than once if it zaps. I'm not sure about that.

    2. Enter openfirmware by holding cmd-opt-O-F. At the openfirmware prompt, run "reset-nvram"

    I make no guarantee that these will not cause your Mac to explode, but I do suggest that it's unlikely. I had this problem once, and PRAM-zapping would help for a while, but not permanently. I replace the battery and all was well. (It was free, too, under warranty.)
