how long has it been sitting?

has the machine been sitting long and not in use?

Like all Machines with socketed chips, you might need to pull the chips, clean the contacts and then re-socket them. usually corrosion or heat will prevent the chips from making contact with the board or sockets so you gotta clean them and reseat them

Along with the suggestions regarding chips, etc.
you might want to check all of your peripheral
connectors and be sure that they are clean and
tight. Also peripheral boards in their sockets.

Biggies here would be the power-supply harness
to the board and the CPU socket. Check your fuses
as well. They can get "old" and fail with age.
