So I recently got a B&W Power Macintosh G3 which beeps once with no RAM installed. If I put a known bad stick of RAM I do get three beeps. With known working RAM (no other Mac so tested in a PC) I get no beeps but I also get no chime. I've bought a replacement graphics card hoping that was what was at fault and it's exactly the same. I didn't get a drive with it so I hooked up an 8.4 GB Seagate I had laying around just in case it needed a hard drive in to boot. The CPU gets warm as it should but no USB keyboard lights come on either (PC keyboard should work right?) Any ideas? I suspect the 1998 dated battery is dead but does it need to be working to boot? I'll buy a new battery if so.
