I bought this G4 Agp Graphics model at a garage sale for $1.00. No keyboard or mouse. The reason for this they told me is that it went thru a power outage, and simply stop working. I brought it home clean it up and prepared to check it out and also to expect the worst. I discovered it was missing the HD (27GB). So far the power supply works as well as its fan and the internal case fan. The DVD-RAM and the Zip drive seem ok too. The ds5 led on the mobo lights up when I turn it on since it powers up just fine. Got it with the original restore and software install cd's, (9.0.2). Problem is I have no video when connected to a Apple monitor (Multiscan 20), or vga one for that matter. Put a HD from a PC, partitioned but no formatted. Also no sounds or chimes whatsoever. Memory is fine since I already tried it on a PC that I have and it's fine. No chance to try the Ati 128 Pro card tough. Put another card (Ati) from a friend's mac (a good one), still no picture. The cd ask's me to boot with the c key pressed as the computer starts up but the new keyboard is not responding, the new mouse does, however.

My questions here is, what the heck could it be? Everything inside looks just dandy. If something did indeed got fried by the outage, what was it? So far no error beeps, it does beep once when I remove the memory, so far a good sign. Put new battery just in case and reseted the PMU, but nada. The HD so far spins (master setting) but nothing happens, or at least can't see it. Could it be the processor, or the board? Any sugestions guys will be appreciated, that way I can go and get what I need since I would really like to keep the machine. Thanks!
