    Need Macintosh Help!!

    I just got this desktop Mac from a friend, it has a 450MHz G3? in it, and It has an ATi Rage 128 (3v AGP),
    I 3 other video cards, one being an ATi Radeon Xpress (1.5v AGP)
    and the other being a SiS (3v AGP)

    Nothing comes on the screen at all, but I hear the Mac chime, and the clicking of the hard drive, and other stuff that would indicat otherwise proper function.


    Thanks./


    As another election draws near; the G.O.P. are yet again filled with a stupid confidence that the they will win the White House. What they don't realize about people like Trump, Carson, and Cruz is that their rhetoric only resonates within an echo chamber, but not the American people. They live in an illusion of falsehood and distorted truth and only seek information and opinions that confirm these beliefs and instantly reject anything that contradicts them because only their opinions matter. Their notion of freedom is freedom for themselves and those alike to them, but not the rest of the country which has changed.
    These are the reasons why the G.O.P is set to lose in 2016. And when that happens, rest assured that they will have myriad of conspiracy theories blaming everyone and everything from the liberal media, to Oprah, to welfare moms, and pretty much everyone but their own disgusting selves.

    When you want to upgrade a Mac, buy a new one... Pretty much a rule of thumb. Nevertheless, if you are interested in getting a better graphics solution working in your system you will need to find a compatibility sheet somewhere on Mac's website, it will of course be archived but you may find somthing based on motherboard layout and model number.

    Keep in mind that it will help to know if the processor is slotted or socketed, and if the AGP Pro bus supports a specific 3v standard or the sometimes odd Mac only 3.14v standard. It's nearly impossible to tell the difference.

    That's pretty outdated now. The G3 450MHz probably dates back to about 2000 and is about the equivilent of an old Pentium 2. It's probably not worth the cost of getting it fixed.
