    I just finished heavily upgrading my iMac 350 to the following:

    Seagate 120GB Ultra ATA hard drive
    1GB PC100 RAM
    Slot-loading DVD-ROM drive

    Now when I turn the iMac on, I don't see any video or hear the chime sound. And yes I updated the firmware before upgrading because I know that's required when installing OS X.

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    Edit: I found out it was the memory I purchased for it. The iMac boots fine with the original RAM so I'm guessing it cannot read ECC sticks correctly. Is this right?

    Cool, thanks for the response. I definitely need to get more RAM in this thing... 10.3 is chugging along better than I had expected, though. It currently has *gasp* 128 MB in it. :eek:

    Edit: Quick question... does it have to be non-ECC? I ask this because I found a great deal on eBay ending in less than 24 hours:

    It's ECC so does that really matter?
