well a year back i bought a Rev .1 B/w G3 if a non mac user who bought it in a company liqidation and it had 384 mb ram 12 gb Hdd SCSI card and whenever you turn it on after a long time it starts up and boots normally but if you restart it or turn it of then on it powers and just sits there, now my dads getting annoyed theres a Mac in my offace Get rid of it sort of thing what exactly can i do with this Un marked case absullty perfect case with Zip and CD face plate also it has a transparent Zipper Drive wich my friends B/w G3 has a normal white one.
What sort of things could i do with this Pretty Case im thinking of putting a Pc mainboarrd in it but also Putting a G4 PCI wudnt be bad eather.
Okay, first things first. Have you zapped the PRAM? Have you reset the logic board? Have you replaced the battery? After doing that I would look to the scsi hd-they can be a burden. What OS are you running? Also, the G4 pci is the same computer with a G4 zif card and different firmware. Dont bother with that. Just buy an upgrade card. The last thing I would do is stick a PC in it (actually I never would, but thats me). I have the same computer. I have been writing upgrade articles on it. Look in news archive. My next article which just may come out today is overclocking the G3 cpu. Let me know if any of this solves you issue. -maestro
You could always send your Dad some ill happenings through his firewall. Teh he...did I say that out loud? Luckily my Dad is die hard Mac. :silly: -maestro
Well id rather do it to the PC based System at his school (he is a teacher) the G3 is sitthing in his Server room minus HDD so he doesnt nick it he also said i shud have got a pc becos he knows how to fix them and i said y wud i let u fix my computer ud brake it so i spent $250 in My iMac witch is named (Quantum) :lol:

Does it still occur after you reset the CUDA and change PCI slots for the SCSI card? Poss. bus issues. Something else to check is booting from CD and seeing if it exhibits the same symptoms.
As for the case itself it has standard ATX board mounts, though the I/O cover will need to be modified. You can paint it, add lights, reform the case, just about anything you can think of. If you have an objective to reach for the machine, keep that in mind during the build.

Well the adaptec SCSI card i pulled out cos theres nuffing pluged into it. well i think in alll nerdiness its a lil "rooted" and wheres the cuda switch if u thinking of thoes two buttons on the mailn board they atully a power and reset (i tryed them to c what thy did after the comp stopped going) oh it wont boot from the cd or Hdd unless u turn it off pull the pRAM batttery out unplug it and leave it there for 8 hrs so i reckon i culd be the power manegment box (whatever that is) well it would more be worth it to stick a rev 2 G3 or PCI graphic in
My first PowerMac was a Powermac 6400 witch i took from school (they Gave me it).....
well the PrAm battery is in amother computer but it was absulutly fine i asl tryed it with 3 other batterys from my friend i laso tryed it with another origanl g3 HDD now i must try SCSI since the card there and i havea SCSi CD and a scsi HDD 8.5 gb that wud mean the IDE onboard is dead. how can i fix the PMU?
