    Hi!

    My friend gifted me used iMac G3 a long time ago and I didn't use it since then. Now I tried to turn it on, but nothing happened. I opened back cover and figured out that some cards are missing, seems as memory and something else, probably hard drive.

    I was never working with Macs so I am confused and want to figure out can it work or not. :confused:

    So I need just basic help what I need to get and figure out what I should do to check if it is still works.

    So, attached are the pics of back side, possibly it can help to figure out what exactly is missing.

    I will appreciate any information and any help you can give me.
    Thanks

    yes no memory (the two slots ) and harddrive either not inside or just not connected , you need to open the bottom for the harddrive ,you find instructions on youtube how to open the iMac g3
