Still no response
I was afraid of that. So is the power supply the small square board above the hard drive? I know that was stupid, I didn't realize I still had the power cord plugged in. In too much of a hurry...
But power supply board is a good start at replacement?
Here's where I'm at:
I ordered a new power supply and after install the mac booted up. I shutdown, unplugged power, grounded myself and put everything back together. Upon restart, I got the screen with ? folder flashing. I put my install disk back in and booted to it and reinstalled the OS. Install went fine and I was able to use the OS. I shutdown and turned back on- got the folder again. I again booted to install disk and used disk utility. Using verify and repair disk, they both said that drive appears to be ok. Tried to boot into safe mode and either it won't or not recognizing keyboard. The hard drive is new/tested.
If I reset the pram once after power off (sleep/resume working fine), unit boots perfectly.
I can live with that instead of replacing the motherboard.
