Trying to revive a B&W 350MHz G3 mac I picked up yesterday.

 

So first thing is - it appears to be complete - howevever I have some booting issues. 

 

1) Pressing power on starts the Mac, the disks etc startup. I see a couple of green lights on the PCB so power is OK.

 

2) I get the Mac chime, followed by a short blast of white noise.

 

3) There is then no video output

 

 

I've tried the usual, removed the battery, reset firmware, disconnected the disk drive, reseated the video card and memory and all looks OK.

 

Any ideas - or am I looking at a new motheboard/video card?

 

Thanks

Which video card is installed? Somebody might have just stuck a PC card in and they don't work.  Also try using just 1 stick of PC100 RAM you know is good.

Agree.

I bought two ATI Radeon 7000 PCI 64MB "Mac Edition" from China and one from the USA. Only the second one worked.

Now I have a ATI Radeon 9200 Mac Edition 128MB PCI
