Restoring old Imac G5 17" original
Have an old G% that i've put RAM, HD in.
Now i need to figure out if the money has been wasted.
It makes no sound when i turn it on, dont show a boot screen (don't know if old models like this does) There's nothing on the HD.
I don't have a optical drive in it, so can't boot from that.
Is there any way i can make sure if it works?
Can i use another G5 and install OS X on my HD via usb and put it back in my G5?

Sounds like bad power supply to me. However, have you checked the diagnostic LED lights on the logic board? If you take the back cover off the machine and then plug in the power cord, you should see four LED lights which, depending on which lights you see, can give you basic troubleshooting information. Search the Apple support pages on their website for more detailed information. I'd post a link, but I don't have time to look it up. Good luck.
