I was recently given a non-working G5 (Late 2005). I was told that the issue was most likely the video card. I just wanted to know if you all think it would be worth time and effort to try and resurrect this machine. From what I can tell, everything is original. I came without a HD, but that's not a problem for me to replace. It also only has one stick of RAM, but doesn't this machine require them to be installed in pairs? I borrowed some matched sticks of RAM that met the necessary specs, but when I fired up the machine, I got various lights up on the mobo. Does anyone know if this machine requires that clear plastic shield or if there's a way to trick it so that the machine thinks it's there? Is it worth delving in deeper, or do I ditch it now for recycling?
