iMac G5 17": black screen, no startup sound after hard drive upgrade?
My iMac G5 17" with ALS has two bad sectors on 160 GB Seagate SATA. Booted OK...until I tried to upgrade hard drive
Installed 1 TB Samsung w Leopard 10.5.8 image restored to 1st partition , checked all internal connectors, reassembled. No boot! Only a black screen and no startup sound LED's 1 and 2 light up OK.
Next I installed 80 Gb Seagate SATA (with Leopard image). No joy. I imaged the 160 GB Seagate still black screen and no startup sound and no boot.
The hard drive Thermal Sensor connector and rubber hard drive grommets are a bit rotten...
Help! (Sorry if not UTFSE well enough...no desktop -posting from 320x480 Android).
Is this a good question?
