broken mac!


My mac starts up, but the screen will not come on, it just remains black. I've tried a PRAM reset, and it seemed to work when I did this , but then when I tried to restart it went back to the same black screen. Also the fans turn all the way up when this happens. Any help at all would be great.

Get your original install disks. One of the then will have the word on it that say "Hardware Test"". Boot with that CD and test your Mac.

I ask you to do this because it sounds like if it is one of two things, dying hard disk (backup immediately) or bad motherboard components (bad news).
