    Two Beeps, Fan Cycle, then nothing
    I just picked up a second hand G5 Quad on a whim from a friend who cut me a deal. However when I try to power it on, I get two beeps, the fans cycle on and off, then nothing. No HD spin up, no video, no nothing. Any ideas?

    Specs:
    2 x 3.0GHz Quad-Core, 6GB OS X 10.6.8 | 15in MacBook Pro 2.2GHz OS X 10.6.8 | 64GB iPad 2 WiFi
    Cool
    1 beep = No RAM installed/detected
    2 beeps = Incompatible RAM type installed (for example, EDO)
    3 beeps = No RAM banks passed memory testing
    4 beeps = Bad checksum for the remainder of the boot ROM
    5 beeps = Bad checksum for the ROM boot bloc
