iMac won't turn on. Possible causes?
I have an early '08 iMac that will not power on what so ever. I received this computer with this issue from a friend, minus the HD & RAM. I put in 2GB RAM and a spare HD (completely blank, new). I press the power button and 3/4 LEDs on the board light up. (One, two, and three, NOT four.) The CD drive makes a sound as if it is trying to detect a disc in the drive, but that is the only sign of life this machine is giving me. No startup sounds, no display response, etc. I've tried everything the Apple FAQ can provide and have examined the boards closely for burst capacitors, etc. Everything looks a-ok. Does anyone have a clue what might be causing it to not respond at all?
When the power button is pressed the fans do not come on either
Is this a good question?
