So I'm just going to lay it all out here. I have zero mac experience and not much info to give here. I have recently gotten a hold of a mac server g3 and a mac server g4. A business was closing down and pretty much just getting rid of everything. The status on the G3- the green power button comes on but it shows nothing on the monitor that i grabbed with the computers. I kind of figured if i can get the g4 to work then why bother with this one. The status on the G4- This one actually gets up and running to the main screen. Problem is I cant get much further because I don't have a mac keyboard/mouse. Do you have to buy specific hardware for macs, and what would be some cheap options in that department? Also, when I turn it on it starts making this really loud noise that sounds like something is stuck in the fan its like a metallic rattling. I honestly don't even know how to get one of these things open. I consider myself moderately tech savvy but would I be better of taking this thing to the mac store and seeing what they could do? Or is it even worth it to be messing with these at all? How well do they work? Anyhow, I know I'm not giving much right now but any assistance with this little project would be greatly appreciated and I will try to answer any questions i can. Thanks!
