    I found a BW G3 powermac somewhere in a dark corner of the room.
    When I power it up, I hear the fan and the harddisk running but the screen stays black.

    What i tried is removing the PRAM battery and putting it back in, without result. I also pressed the button on the logic board to reset the PRAM.
    Inserting the OS 9.2 disk and pressing the c button didn't help me either.
    I'm out of ideas...

    I reseated the processor and he's up and running again.
