I have a PowerMac G4 model M8570 and when I try to turn it on, the fan and the DS18 light turn red, but there is nothing on the monitor and no Apple’s classic startup chime. The hard drive turn on but there is nothing on the screen, it’s not showing me life.
I checked for the BIOS battery but it still have energy on it. But actually, like 6 month ago, it was working fine. If someone knows what this is about, please tell me because I have a project with it that is really important.
Thanks. (yes, i checked and all the video cables are conected)
