Picked this machine up for free yesterday and it seems to be fighting
me a little. According to the person I got it from it had been sitting
in a closet for several years. When I first turned it on, the drives
spun up, no chime, no video. Remembering a pervious thread here I
figured the battery might be dead (checking it on a meter later proved
it was indeed very dead). Purchased a new battery and installed it.
Now, when I go to turn it on, the supply flicks on for less than a
second and then off again. I tried poking the CUDA reset switch.
Still, it exhibits the same behavior.
Has anyone ever encountered this? Can this thing be saved or is it
destined to become a big doorstop?
