    Unhappy G4 upgrade killed my Sawtooth

    I've had a G4 "Sawtooth" from Operator Headgap for nearly 10 years now. G4 1GHz/1 GB/160GB/OS 10.4.9

    I recently purchased a Newer Technology 2.0 GHz processor upgrade from Other World Computing. Followed all instructions to a "T" and it refused to boot in OS X; would hang in Classic OS 9 boot up when it was nearly through the process. Reinstalled the old processor, made some adjustments, all booted up just fine. Installed the new upgrade; same story. Reinstalled the old processor to check on programmer CD patches one final time. Now only the power comes on: no chime, no video. Reset the motherboard switch. Nothing. Took out the PRAM battery for 30 minutes (suggested by NT tech guy), replaced and still nothing. Any suggestions?
