Hey all, I recently received a 'refurbished' G5, Dual 2ghz. Not from Apple. On pushing the power button, I get no startup chime....just one fan wurr noise then another. The power light does not light. It is only lit as long as your finger is on it. If it is left on for 5 mins the fans crank up to speed, from what I have read this appears to be 'safe mode'. Having spoke to Apple support, who were very helpful, we have determined it is a hardware issue and must go back. The question I have is: can the computer startup normally and operate with the front proc fans disconnected? The reason I ask this is because, on opening the side door after receiving the machine and it not starting up, I noticed the front fans were not in the mount slot, but lodged just underneath. Disconnected. The company who sold me the machine assure me that they test all units before they leave the door. Could this unit have worked for them in test with the front proc fans disconnected? I mean....I'm pretty strongly thinking not. Mac user of 10 years here. This, unfortunately, is my move to the G5 Any help, comments, etc appreciated.
