Are you sure you can't get something under the battery to pop it out? Looking at pictures of that old beast it looks like you should be able to shimmy something between the battery and its case. You might need to remove the power connector.

I'd thought of using the iFixit Jimmy. But it would be easy to damage the contacts. And given that the ring is closed and stuck, I think that prying it open would probably break it. Then there would be nothing to hold the battery in place - although I could see if Scotch tape would work.

Thanks for the suggestion. If the battery dies and then the computer won't boot, then anything that might work will be tried.
