    I been having to restart several times my g3 to chime and work. all of a sudden it doesn't turn the green light on nor chimes. I changed the battery, checked the cards. may be somebody knows a way to test whats wrong? thanks a lot.

    You might pull and reset the zif as well as your ram. Do a CUDA reset and then on restart do a PRAM reset through 4 chimes.

    ?You might need to get a TechTool utility and try it to see if it can tell whether some hardware has gone south. Your symptoms could be darn near anything. Oh, don't forget to pull the voltage regulator and reseat it.

    ?You might go through the xlr8yourmac.com Beige G3 troubleshooting pages as well as macfixit.com.

    ?Sorry I'm not more specific, I can't think of a magic bullet cure-all for the stated ills.
