You can tell by the subject line that this is a very "classic" computer. I recently inherited this machine from a co-worker who had it passed down to him, etc. As far as I can tell nobody has attempted to boot it. It is missing the keyboard and mouse but I thought that turning it on would at least give me some sort of error beeps, codes, unhappy face. However, when I flipped the switch all I can hear is the fans, and I believe I also hear the HD but beyond that nothing. No video is displayed (black) and I can't find any other indication of what's wrong. I realize this is probably a lost cause but I thought I'd post here anyway in hopes that someone has an idea. Thanks for your help.
