Currently DEAD and not powering on, Loud pop and Magic smoke a few seconds after I plugged in a PCMCIA CD-ROM drive, I believe it stressed an already weak power regulator and blew it out, it had been whistling a bit prior to it popping so I believe it was on its way out already, CD-ROM just pushed it over the edge.
Currently waiting for a rainy day to work on this one, hoping its just a dead and blown capacitor or some other off the shelf part in regulator.
