AAAARGH! So near yet so far :/ Just bought a second hand (but still under guarantee) 2ghz G5. I saw it working and did the hardware test on the DVD before buying. When I got it home and hooked it up to my trusty 17" Apple studio display CRT (graphite) and hit the power button, the G5 started up (light came on, fans started up, made the chime sound etc) but my monitor remained unimpressed. It wouldn't start up and the green "on" light remained, well...off. I cheked the connections on the DVI to VGA adapter, rebooted several times, reset the PRAM, and took a peek at the video card (couldn't see much it's dark in there but it felt firmly locked in place). It's running X.3.4 I think. None of this worked and now I'm stumped. Just one more thing, the monitor used to get it's power from being plugged into the back of my old G4 tower. There's nowhere on the back of the G5 to plug in the power cable. Am I correct in assuming then that it will now draw all it's power through the 1 cable connected to the video card? (I hope that's not too stupid a question) Any advice guys?
