Beige G3: Out the window . . .

Hey,

Yes, folks, it's going out the window. It's ziffed to G4 400, 384MB RAM, 80 gigs over 2 drives. Anyway, I have an AV card in it and I watch VHS tapes on my VCR through the monitor. Last night I'm watching Claude Chabol's debut as a director and I went to diddle with the contrast in the Apple software when I realize that the computer has crashed. Cursor moves, video plays. Nothing else. So I restart and get "?" The crashing has happened before but never the "?" on restart. So I restart again and even less. No chime, no video. Power supply is on, light is on for the CD ROM/burner and nothing else. So I yank everything of the mobo, pull the battery and the plug and leave it overnight. Bought a new PRAM battery but still no video. Pulled the video connector out and connected via a vid card and still no video.

Anyone got a clue?
