    I have 2, 4 year old, Mac Pro Intel Xenons, purchased in May of 09. I am holding out till the new desktops come out ( hopefully soon ).

    I never upgrade other then adding hard drives. One just stopped working after being left on for a few days so I went to restart and there was no chime. Fans went on and there looks like a red light is on inside, power light is on and monitor looks ready to go but that is dark with the power light on. I have let it stay on with the fan for half an hour, still no image on the screen or a chime. I have to hold the button down to shut down.

    I read a few things...

    - replaced the PRAM battery... nothing changed.
    - unplugged for a while and re-plugged
    - took out the video card to see if I would get a chime on start up... no but the monitor was not hooked up at all... I assume it would still chime if it were a video card issue.

    I just need to keep this working till I get a new one later this year... any ideas?

    where is the light red? possibly bad RAM or other overheating

    Open up the computer and see which red LED lights. Remove this bad HDD and try again.
