Won't boot up after I removed the optical drive
I removed the optical drive of my imac g4 to put into a different computer. When I tried to boot it up after that nothing happened. I then gave it up for a while and so I put the hard drive into a different computer but am now trying to boot up using another computer in target disk mode. I then put an optical drive that may or may not work into the computer with only the power plugged into it. After that when I tried to turn it on I noticed that the fan and the optical drive would run but nothing would come up on the screen or come through the speakers. Any ideas what might be wrong?
