Here's the story: awhile back I obtained (for free) a 700 MHz eMac that did not want to power up. Plug it in, click the power button and nothing. It was awhile back so I can't remember specifically what I had found out after I researched it but I remember one thing (power board?) was expensive and if it wasn't that, it was the analog board which was REALLY expensive. So, I decided I wanted to build an acrylic case for it and use it with an external monitor. I found this (http://www.lbodnar.dsl.pipex.com/eServer/) website which gives me a lot of good info, I just need more specific stuff.

First of all ~embarrassed smile~ which is the power board?

I think of more q's later but I'm really tired tonight so...

Thanks for any help or suggestions!

Hey, did you ever get anywhere with this? I just bought a couple of 700 MHz machines and they're working but have bad screen burn in so I might attempt to dismantle one and try to replace the CRT with an LCD or something. I see you're in Saskatoon and I'm in Humboldt so maybe we could compare notes.
