  1. Hello everyone! I recently got an iMac G3 cheaply from a thrift store missing the hard drive and ram, but it powered on and gave the beep signal for no ram, so I bought it. I got a stick of ram from a friend, installed a hard drive, and it even powered on to the blinking question mark. However, after returning to the computer after burning an install disc for the OS, it no longer would turn on. I will attach a video of what it does. https://streamable.com/pnoq2 In case this does not load, the speakers click a few times, and the CRT makes noise that sounds like static that persists for several seconds after I let go of the button. I do not get power LED, bong, or HDD spinup. Things I have tried: -resetting PMU (with the motherboard button) -leaving iMac unplugged for 2 days and trying power on -leaving iMac plugged in for 2 days and trying power on -disconnecting hdd and CD drive to reduce psu load None of this has fixed it. I have tried googling but have gotten everything from people saying it is simply a bad p-ram battery to capacitors to PAV failure. I really want to get this machine working (my first apple computer, although I am far more experienced with PCs) and these problems are out of my depth so I need some help to diagnose the issue. Computer info: -blueberry 1999 slot loading -350mhz, no FireWire -ram: pc133 (compatible to PC 100) 256mb -hdd: 120gb Western digital 7200rpm Due to coronavirus, I don't have most of my tools (normally I have access to an oscilloscope) and haven't gotten access to a new pram battery to change as the shop that sells them is closed. What can I do to get this computer running? Thank you in advance for your help! I tried to cover all info but will give more if needed.
  2. I recently got an iBook G4 and when I turned it on a folder with (Classic) Mac OS logo and question mark appeared, it seem like Mac OS X isn't installed. Mac OS X Tiger install CD came with it, unfortunately it was only an upgrade CD but it was useful enough to make sure that the hard drive is alive. So how can I install Mac OS X on this iBook?
  3. So I recently acquired a powerpc 8100/110 the hard drive soon broke but fortunately I had a 600 megabyte Drive. But of course with this was supposed to be a 2GB Drive and there is very little space to store anything. And I begin to look around and scsi drives are pretty expensive. But like every retro computer nerd I have a stack of IDE drives at my disposal.But of course there's no way to just slap a IDE drive into a SCSI bus. So I began to look at some I need you to SCSI bridge adapters. Now there are plenty and most of them that are listed are made by acard. But almost all of the bridge cards are extremely expensive to the point of being illogical. But some are $60 or around that price range, still this isn't a great deal. So I was wondering does anyone know of any affordable solutions to have an IDE work on a SCSI bus?
  4. I decided to give my Sonnet Sonata 24 Pro a try for the first time today. Stuck it in my Radius 81/110 and it works fine, albeit slow since the drivers are not loaded. Performing heavy searching dug up nothing. The Wayback machine has some files archived but the file size is suspiciously small for a video driver, only 48kb! The actual VillageTronic site is long gone. Sonnet does not host the drivers for this card either. Would anyone happen to have the drivers for this? Thanks!
  5. Hello, I own 6 PowerPC Macs in total (see them in my signature), and most of them I've found uses for. G5 is my main Mac, iMac G4 is for music and writing, iBook G4 is laptop, Intel iMac is file server. iBook G3s are collectables. But then I have my Mac mini G4 which is not being put to good use right now. Which is sad, as it's one of my fastest systems. It just sits there, never used. Any ideas for a good use for this guy? Thanks, Henry

    2 B&W G3s + Studio Display

    Came across a guy who had found 2 B&W G3s and a Studio Display in his attic. Picked them up yesterday, had to troubleshoot them a bit, but sure enough, they came to life! One had no ram, one had two sticks (one bad). Studio display works for the most part, but has to be tapped every once in a while and has a horrible green and magenta effect on the screen. Thinking I might sell one if there's any interest. Cosmetically, one is a little rough.. missing side panel, scuffs and scratches, cracked or broken feet and handles. But it works! On a side note, I found this on the letgo app
  7. Is there any progress or late-breaking news regarding this topic? Bw, Kristian
