Hello.

 

I have a faulty Mac Po and wondering if someone can advise.

 

There's a red LED constantly switched on on the processor tray (see photos). It is not one of the RAM diagnostic LEDS.

 

The Mac Pro does not load up. It does initialise the RAM and boot up the Hard Disks.

 

At the same time the Graphics card fan spins very fast, and no input is detected on the display. I have removed it (in the photos) just in case it overheats.

 

I have plugged in the graphics card and processor tray on an identical Mac Pro and they both work fine. I have also swapped out the small button-battery fo a new one.

 

I have also unplugged all cables, reseated the RAM and removed any non-Apple RAM, leaving the shipped RAM in place.

 

If anyone has any ideas what this might be I'd be grateful for a response.

 

With thanks in advance

 

Lawrence
