Bad Caps or Bad Video RAM?
Today I received an iMac G3 400 DV that mostly works. The issue being that there is graphic corruption that doesn't seem to be the monitor since the same corruption happens on an external monitor as well. (See photos.)


It runs reasonably well (and will be better once I stick an old 32GB SSD I have in it instead of the 10GB HD). Does this model still have the removable video RAM DIMM that the older G3's did? Or does this look like something else to anyone. Thanks in advance!

My somehwat iffy recollection

My somehwat iffy recollection is that it does not, but replacement boards are not expensive.
