So yesterday I went to power up my iMac, only to have it not boot. It worked fine on Friday night, so yeah.

 

I power it up, and I the fan runs, and the power LED glows amber. I've now had a play around with it, and I've gotten it to chime (played with the RAM), but I can't get any video, either on the internal display, or an AppleVision 1710AV.

 

I have another logic board assembly kicking around, with RAM and a CPU card installed, so I tried it. It needed some convincing, but it booted fine off an OS 8.6 CD.

 

I know for the past few months, the display on it has taken longer and longer to warm up. ATX conversion time I guess? :-/

 

For the record its a Rev. D tray load iMac 333.

Forget about this everyone - the iMac lives :) Turns out that one of the RAM modules is cactus, the Hyundai stick. Friggen Hyundai...their cars suck, and so does their RAM! (They're the same company, right?)

 

Its also a shame that it seems that these old gals, as they seem to age, seem to become more finicky than a vintage Alfa Romeo. :p

Yeah, I've heard their RAM is supposed to be decent, but as you can tell, I haven't had much luck with them, and, well, everyone knows that their cars really suck! :p (unless, of course, you're a fuli sic Hyundai Excel driver :p)
