Are you getting three bongs on start up?


no, 1 bong it starts up, then sits for 5-7 minutes, then it just goes wild and I have to turn it off


Mayer, Your descriptions of your issues are exasperating. "Goes wild", tells me absolutely nothing. You're very hard to help. SO I'LL JUST LET SOMEONE ELSE TRY TO HELP YOU.

You'll probably need a new hard drive for it. Especially if the install floppy cant find the HD.

Your best bet would be to scour eBay for a replacement.

Also, if you've ever done any sort of hardware repair on a computer, you shouldn't have any problems replacing it. Those old macs were meant to be serviced.

This answer was originally to another question.

You'll need a 1/3 height SCSI hard drive. This is just a standard size drive.
