Hey, I'm new here so forgive me if I make some sort of mistake in this post. I've been looking to get a Mac for awhile now, but being unemployed at the moment has really hampered that. My friend picked me up a "cannibalized" Power Mac G5 Dual Core 2.0 ghz. They removed the RAM, Hard Drive, and Disc Drive from the computer, everything else was left intact. I had a Hard Drive and Disc Drive that were compatible with this computer, so we installed them following Apple's online instructions. I had two sticks of 256 MB RAM, PC 3200 laying around so we installed those and hooked the computer up. I'm using a standard keyboard (non-Apple) and a Microsoft laser mouse. In order to hook up my Dell monitor to it I used a cheap VGA to DVI adapter. When I turn the computer on, the fans start spinning like normal (I assume, anyway) and the power light comes on, also like normal. The screen stays black and when I pop in a Leopard install disc and turn it off then back on, the drive begins to spin the disc but the still stays black. One thing I should mention is I do not know the order in which the RAM needs to be installed into this computer. There's eight slots, but I really don't know where the two sticks I have go (I was told there was specific slots each stick needs to be in), but I don't know the order. I also noticed that when I turn on the computer, the mouse does not light up as if there's power to it and the keyboard does not light up either. If there's anyone that can make sense of this all, I'd really like to know if this is an easy fix or something as larger as a bad logic board. Thanks!
