I have a QS 733 that has stopped working. You can read more about it in this thread: http://forums.applenova.com/showthread.php?t=2664
Recap. I tried to upgrade the processor but upon proc. install the computer would no longer boot up. The logic board has a red light on it and the main fan comes on...and thats it. This happens with the upgrade processor and the old processor. I have pushed the cuda switch, to no avail.

Here is the question. I believe that either the PS or logic board is dead. No big leap there.
Does anyone know of ways or links to ways to test the power supply functionality and/or logic board functionality WITHOUT using another QS.

This is the only QS I have. I don't mind shelling out $130.00 for a new PS but I just can't afford a new logic board for it.

Thanks for any help yall can give.

If you know anyone who has a voltmeter and knows how to use it, that would be the best way to test the power supply directly.
