    No Screen... Louder Fan
    hey there, I just got my hands on an old G4 running OS9... i'm not a mac head and it hasn't been turned on for a year or so... it was running pro tools for a long while (that's why i got it)

    I can't see the monitor and after the first time I booted it up I can't get the start up chime again... after about 10 secs after turning on - the fan speeds up and stays at a constant faster pace. Can someone please help me - the monitor is fine... i've pulled the power cord and tried most things...

    It's an old banger but I parted with a little cash for it... thanks guys

    And then if no joy make sure the HDD, power, optical and video card connection s are all nice, clean and tight.
