How to test a Powermac?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I want to buy a secondhand Powermac G4 but how can I see if the secondhand Powermac G4 is working fine?
How can I see if for example the hard disk isn't damaged? Or if the graphics card isn't damaged?
many thanks

Norton Utilities has an application "System Info" that will check the drive.

It will also bench mark the video. That might be your best bet.

To test the processor/RAM I've read elsewhere that people run Graphing Calculator overnight...

hope this helps.

The Apple Hardware Test CD is probably your best bet.

Push the power button. Use it.

J/K, do what they said above. Yeah, obey them.
