So my Quadra 950 seems to have issues booting, especially when its cold in the room (I'm talking real cold like in the 50s). I can leave it running but after a while it'll power up, or I can heat up the room to the higher temperature and that'll allow it to bootup. When I run into this issue, it doesn't give any bongs or sad mac, the fans and drives do spin up though.
I suspect the reset and interrupt buttons as a culprit as when I even lightly touch it it'll trigger their respective functions and I had the interrupt switch get hit on its own.
I am right now checking the resistance on the interrupt switch while heating up my room to see if the mac will power up and if the issue is indeed that. I"m right now showing 10-20 ohms. Ideally I should be showing infinite resistance, but I don't have anything to compare that to so I'm not sure
For the people with Quadra's out there, can you please measure the resistance on the leads of the switch so I have something to compare it to?
To the others, what are your thoughts and suggestions.
And yes I do really keep the room this cold.
