Question about Computers & Internet
Thats sounds like a ram problem. If it was cpu you should still get a beep or post code. If it can't read the first 64kb of ram in the first chip it will do this.
I would take the ram out and swap the sticks. Then try to boot. If you get it then the chip is the problem. Older ram sockets can loosen up with heat cycle, vibration etc so it could be something as simple as needing to reseat the ram stick and it will work.
The next thing to check would be the cpu. It might be the chip or the socket again.
The power light is strange but I've seen it when the cpu is out when the power transitors go on the board. It may be a fault caused from the cpu.
I still have a 486 Tosh I use. Still can't type faster (or speull bettter) now then when it was new so it still does some things just fine ;-]
