Possible G5 graphics card replacement?
Hello! I'm was trying to pull all the data off of an old Power Mac G5, and while the computer powered up just fine (fan running, audible responses to key strokes, etc.), I discovered the monitor (an old Mag InnoVision LT976s from 2003) no longer displays anything. To be clear: the monitor powers on, and displays options, etc. But it indicates it can't detect a signal from the computer.
Undaunted, I bought some new cables (VGA to DVI, DVI to DVI, etc.), and even (thanks to this site) tried my hand at removing the (very dusty) video card, wiping it off a little, and putting it back in. No dice.
As such: is the only option here to hunt down a new video compatible with an old G5? If so, does anyone have recommendations on what to buy? Note: I only need it to help me get the data off the computer, not to work particularly well or for the long haul — so it doesn't need to be particularly nice.
Any recommendations are welcome!
