My eMac (Tiger installed) won't start up.  It makes the intial 'bong' sound and after a few seconds, there is a click and nothing else happens.  The screen remains black, no question mark, nothing.  It acted up previously in that, when the space bar was pressed to wake from sleep, it would shut down.  It always started up after that, though, until the final time it shut down and we went on vacation for a couple of weeks.  When we returned, it would no longer start.


One of my biggest objectives is retrieving certain files on the eMac.  I have an old blueberry iMac and an external hard drive, the original eMac disks, the Tiger disks and Tech Tool Deluxe.  Any suggestions?
