      Just think, having a Quadra 950 in 1992 would be like having a Mac Pro today… except with more slots, more expandability, and on-board SCSI!

    • I had the same problem with my SE/30. After changing two of the F258 the problem was solved. For cleaning you can use vinegar.  
    • Yeah, I really hate taking this thing apart and I hate getting it back together even more but it's either fix it or try and hock it on Craigslist.    Fortunately I have a spare 1GB DDR stick to try, so I'll take it apart for the third time in 2 days and see if that makes it boot again.
    • I’ve seen an iMac G4 that needed the RAM within the inner socket to be replaced, ten years ago. It had all kinds of random failures that made it impossible to install any then-remotely-recent OS X.   I’m inclined to believe that the RAM is worth replacing. It is the one thing that I really don’t like about those iMacs.
    • I've had this iMac G4 (1.25GHz) for over a year and it's been mostly problems so far. I finally got the previous problem I had sorted out this week and decided to try installing OS X...and now it has a new problem. The first few boots, I got display and the blinking folder, but then it started having issues with displaying the screen. I tried a PRAM reset, which somehow got me into Open Firmware, and then tried to boot normally but it froze:     Now, the last few attempts have just been a black screen with no bong at all. What could be the problem here? Googling around suggested it could be RAM but it would be odd for RAM slots to suddenly act up like this.
    • Thanks for every one for the useful information
