Could be the video card.

I certainly hope not.

Make sure some crazy way it did not get unseated from the AGP/PCIx slot.

Nah, I don't slam my system around.

Or maybe it just died.

I certainly hope not.

Got on board video you can try? Another video card?

No on both counts...

It's not the monitor. I've got it attached to the KVM between the PC and Power Mac.... working fine on that front. The PSU itself is set to run at 115V. Hard drive and DVDRW are spinning up and initializing... monitor is still black even when I set it to the PC before I power that on... so, guess I'll go ahead with PSU swap anyway.

Thanks for your suggestions!

4. PSU/Mobo Problem? Sep 7, 2007, 21:59 Dan =0)
 
Posting this from my dualie G4 Power Mac...

I went through my usual routine of turning my PC on with its ailing PSU... press power button, see power LED come on without activity, turn off hard switch at the back of PSU, turn the hard switch back on and press soft switch on front... no beans this time around.

I hear some wonderful electrical humming/whining coming from the PSU, so I believe.. the fans are turning, the power LED is on, the DVDRW drive seems to come up properly.. but there is no POST visual on monitor (black screen) and no beeping whatsoever even after waiting about 15 seconds. By this point the humming becomes that much worse, and I can't hold down the soft switch for 8+ seconds to force it off... so I kill it with the PSU's hard switch. I'm really hoping the motherboard or another component on it hasn't gotten completely fried, and that a simple PSU swap will remedy things. The current PSU is the Antec that came with the case, rated around 350W.

Any suggestions otherwise?

Thanks,

Dan =0)

Am I a horrible person because as this video keeps going on and on, doing the same thing over and over, I keep laughing more and more?

I found it disturbing and disgusting...

Though if I close my eyes I don't have to watch, and I'm reminded of Family Guy somehow...

You have a deep-seated fear of opera?

I know a few guys who have a deep-seated hatred of opera, if that helps.

In any case, RIP LP.

8. Upgrades.. Sep 1, 2007, 20:30 Dan =0)
 
won't be upgrading for a while, as the car's been busy trying to empty my wallet as of late.

Anywho, I'm game to jump into a game of gw/bf2/whatever with anyone.

Sounds a lot like:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0267287/

just without total immersion.

(Neat movie, by the way - check it out, if you don't mind hearing Polish. Just know that Miramax added dialogue which was never in the original shoot when they imported it...)

BD: Sorry to hear about the cat

In similar news, my coworker had decided to put down his dog (Boston Terrier) due to brain lesions that were affecting her ability to function. Neat little dog too...

... then again, I just got wind a friend of mine is adopting a foxhound/beagle mix. So not all bad today.

If I had a copy of the game, I could run it through one of the (newer) synths I've got and output it to mp3 easily enough...

...for my own enjoyment, of course.

Are you going to make me go into another rant about how lousy the 8600 is

Nope, but if you had any recommendations then I'd much appreciate it.

Already posted in the Bioshock demo thread up there, but.. I can't play the demo (or the game for that matter, if/when I get it) because my card doesn't support SM3.0.

I found an XFX 8600-based PCI-Express card for $139 on newegg... might wait a while to get anything, though, as I've just sunk more than that into my car to get it fixed.

I had the misfortune of finding out that Bioshock won't run with my ATI x700 - no sm3.0 support on the card.... guess I'll have to upgrade at some point.
