Or do you mean PRAM? Start with the basics and use a working battery, then see what the video does.
Yes, PRAM. I have been fighting with that 4D/20 for waaaaaay too long it seems.
I don't have access to a suitable replacement mac battery I don't think as I think all of mine are dead but I'll see if I can make a substitute out of three Ni-MH batteries.
I swear I had batteries and a holder clip here but I guess I was wrong. Looks like I'll have to put this project on the back burner until I can supply myself with the parts.
Found a semi-good battery in my B/W G3 that's reading 2.7 volts but still, I'm not getting video.
Yes, I did press the CUDA switch and try using Command + option + P + R but that didn't do anything either (and the latter I don't thing thing was even resetting the PRAM as I was not hearing the usual chime associated with the system clearing the PRAM and restarting).
