Had a nearby lightning strike, "scrammed" my Mac, but couldn't start it up afterwards. Google led me to the ifixit site ( where I should have gone first!) and your instructions got me going again. Granted, I had an identical, spare Macintosh so I was able to pull that power supply to replace the damaged one and not have to wait for a replacement, but your step-by-step made the swap fairly easy! Thank you! I am happy tonight!

Now to order the replacement.

ditto…. like Bill I had a faithful G4 i use to archive some old OS9 files that need specific software that never went to OS X and some very basic Apache web server stuff. Mostly sleeping it went pop one day, I had replaced it a few years previously after a pram issue with a clean SH unit which i just swopped drives over, so getting sleeping beauty down from attic, following instructions I removed the power pac and in 30 minus the dead mac was running again and archive is protected
