Opened up to replace HDD, all cables re-connected. Power Mac on and it sounds asthough its running but can't see any display. Replaced HDD with standard IDE, not aware they require special HDD's? Not particularly familiar with Macs, understand you need to hold down 'c' to run system disk to load OS.  But no sign of anything trying to appear or display.
