    Hi all, I recently acquired an older Mac model A1225. Serial W88054DDX89.

    This is a no boot up issue. This is what I know:

    Diagnostics LED 1 is on solid
    LED's 2 and 3 light solid when you press the power button
    The DVD does an eject cycle
    No hard drive spin up I can hear
    No fan movement
    No video (black screen)
    Video card is AMD

    Any advice appreciated.

    Rod

    you have a bad graphics card. They are on eBay for ~200$ and are not super complicated to repair. Occasionally the card will fail on the internal display but the external port will work. Its only a test but either way you definitely have a bad graphics card.

    Hello, thank you for your help. I suspected it but just wanted to be sure. I can get on on eBay pretty cheap.
