I have a very useful and well mantain pismo 500 mhz
with 1gb of ram and a 5400rpm hard drive.
About two months ago this "excellent tool" stopped starting up.
I discover that removing the processor I could turn it on succesfully.
This actions worked like ten times. Now it doesn´t start up at all.
The new symptoms when i try to turn it on are: 4 beeps and then the Led keeps flashing.
I decided to get a new PRAM battery. I charged it the usual 48 hr.
But still the same symptoms.
Since I also tried another (known good) memory but still
the same problem I came here to place the following questions:
Is my Processor card dead?
Could it be another piece that is damaged and not the processor one?
How can I figure that out?
Thanks for posting some help.
