My brother managed to pick up a nice R4400 02 and an Indy for me. The O2
works great, but the Indy doesn't want to power on. It looks like it's got
quite a bit of stuff with in it:

R4400 200MHz
Cosmos Compress Card
24bit XL graphics
Indy Cam
2.5 GB HD
Unknown amount of RAM
17" Granite Monitor, KB & Mouse

It apparently booted when it left Boston, MA, but it doesn't even want to
power on now that it's made its way to Rochester, NY.

It's got a Nidec/Power General power supply in it. I got the cover off the
power supply - there doesn't appear to be anything fried inside of the
machine. After reseating all the cards/RAM and even completely detaching
the power supply from the rest of the box, I still can't get it to boot.
Is there anything I can fiddle with in the power supply to breathe some
life into it again? If not, does anyone have a Nidec or Sony power supply
they'd like to part with, preferably cheaply?
