Hi have a G4/800 Quicksilver that wont chime or boot up. I can take out the video card and it will chime so I bought a cheap one and tried it but it still will not chime with a video card in it. Anybody know what could be wrong?

I doubt resetting he PRAM will do anything for you, but its worth a shot if you can even get that far.

Is this an AGP or PCI video card? If you can try a Mac PCI Video card and see if that works then maybe the AGP slot isn't any good anymore for some odd reason.

You didn't try doing a firmware update or anything did you?

It is a AGP video card. I don't have a PCI card for a Mac. What happen is I sold it on Ebay and it got damaged in shipping. The guy told me the cd rom was lose and was beating around in the case and would not boot. Their is no damaged that I can see to the computer. Could it have damaged the logic board?
