    Hi there!I'm new to Mac and couple weeks ago I bought PowerMac G3(B&W)300Mhz/512L2,6Gb HDD.I installed Mac OS X Panther but I had to restart it couple of times to boot into desktop.Today I started the Mac and after restarting 10 times booted into desktop and mouse pointer turned into rainbow circle and there wasn't HDD icon on the desktop.I shut down the Mac and on my pc I found on google how should I connect the UltraATA cable and opened the mac.I connected the UltraATA cable with the blue connector on board and with black on HDD and when I started the Mac the lights don't flash,the power supply don't start.I removed the battery for a 15 min. and it started and then I pulled the power supply cable out and pulled back into power supply and then again stoped to work.Please help!!!

    that computer is not worth repairing, it'll cost more than to buy a new macbook or iMac
