Hi, my G4 kept freezing so, after eliminating everything else, I replaced the logic board, with the original OEM Dual 450's the machine boots and behaves normally.
However, when refitting the Powerlogix 1.2Ghz processors the machine will start, i.e fans runs and logicboard LED is on, but the front panel button light stays off and the machine will neither boot nor chime.
I remembered to set the CMU (10 secs) and PRAM, but to no avail, have I forgotten something?
