  1. Just tested with another drive and it seems to boot fine (in comparison to how it was). It definately was the original HDD causing the problem.
  2. Thanks so much for your help. For anyone in the future - I can confirm that one of the molex power pins was shorted to ground, and therefore it must have been a shorted HDD causing the problem. I might be able to try another molex device (newer HDD) in the machine at a later date, and will post back with results just to confirm.
  3. Really? Weird I've never heard of a dead HDD preventing a system from even booting (no chime or power light on the system) before!
  4. Hi, I'm having some problems with a Quadra 700. The Mac only (now) boots when the power to the HDD is disconnected, and goes straight into the flashing floppy screen. When the HDD power is connected, the Mac does not boot at all - just a clicking sound comes from the machine. The PSU fan tries to spin too. I assume this is some sort of problem with the power supply - possibly not being able to supply enough power? Weirdly the whole machine was working fine yesterday, although it hadn't been booted in a long while before that. Is there something I can do to fix this? Has anyone
