You do have a graphics card and probably a Rage 128 16MB Pro or you would get no picture. An ATI Radeon 8500 to 900 would probably be the go, as assume the machine being a DP it is a Gigabit Ethernet with a 2XAGP slot?

That message SMART failing tells it all - replace asap. If the drive still operates, get a say a 7200 RPM 8MB cache 80GB replacement, Western Digital and Seagate are good, install the new drive as slave, and use a program such as SuperDuper or Carbon Copy Cloner to back up current drive.

Then remove failing drive, install new drive as master changing the switches and all should be well. If the drive will not back up you will need the OS X.4 retail (black) DVD and not the grey coloured model specific discs.

An Apple Store - or any computer repair shop that is familiar with Macs. Where are you located?

Also, please note that is generally considered to be "bad form" to post a new thread on the same subject more than once. Please pick the appropriate forum, post your question and then wait for a response before posting again.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
