Also hook it up to an external monitor to try to isolate the problem. if it works then it's the CRT.

According to which eMac you have, the following applies:

You have to have an Intel processor to run Snow Leopard.

Mac OS X v10.5 Leopard requires:

  • A Mac computer with an Intel, PowerPC G5, or Power PC G4 (867 MHz or faster) processor
  • 512 MB memory or more
  • A DVD drive for installation
  • 9 GB of available disk space or more
  • Some features require a compatible Internet service provider, fees may apply.

To use Mac OS X v10.4, your Macintosh needs:

  • A PowerPC G3, G4, or G5 processor
  • Built-in FireWire
  • At least 256 MB of RAM
  • DVD drive (DVD-ROM), Combo (CD-RW/DVD-ROM) or SuperDrive (DVD-R) for installation
  • At least 3 GB of free disk space; 4 GB if you install the XCode 2 Developer Tools
