Welcome to IWETHEY!

New :-)
I'll check those things if I find the time to pull the glass and the screen to get access to them.

Part of the Apple Hardware tests is a detailed test that exercises all the RAM. It took over an hour (16 GB) but didn't find anything wrong.

I'd really like it to be the case that I can resurrect it for the price of a 2032 battery, but it will have to wait until I can find the time to take it apart. (Conversely, I'll be really pissed if it is the graphics board (costs about as much as a whole iMac on eBay...).)

Thanks muchly. :-)

Cheers,
Scott.
New Is there a clock anywhere on the diagnostic screens?
PC UEFI/BIOS screens usually have a time display. If the Mac has something similar, that would be a surefire way to check the battery. If the clock is correct, the battery is doing fine. OTOH, if it thinks it is 02/24/1955, the battery is dead.
New Ah, good idea! I'll try to check. Thanks.

         Wow! Given the time and effort you've put into it, I'm amazed you didn't just go buy a new one. -NT - (a6l6e6x) - (1)
