Ok, thanks Gary 👍

I will burn the CD again as a data CD as you advised

I am back on the stock CPU (867GHZ) until I get this all sorted.

Thanks again,

AHT is indeed in the file. All icons are invisible (why? Who knows?)

When you burn the CD, you should have burned it as a data CD-ROM. If you didn't, try again.

If still no boot, boot the computer to the internal OS9 then open the Startup Disk Control Panel and see if it is displayed as a valid boot option.
If it is, select it and restart.

You must run it with the Apple CPU. It's 99% it will indicate a fail with the Mercury or not run at all.
Not sure about the mouse. It will likely indicate a bad mouse if not plugged in directly but that's no big deal.

New day, new Mac protocol to learn...

Enjoying the process tho :-)

Ok thank you Diehard for the next step I need to take.

So I downloaded the Apple Hardware Test from the link provided and have burned it to a CD.

Unfortunately whenever I try to boot to it (by holding down C while booting the quicksilver) it just boots back to my normal desktop.

When I examine the contents of the CD the only file in there is Apple Hardware Test Read Me file and nothing else. Am I missing the actual Hardware Test program/file or something?

I don't have an Original Apple keyboard either (I am using a Dell/Windows keyboard that allows me to plug the mouse into the keyboard itself - the Apple Hardware Test Read Me file stated that a known issue was that the mouse could not be directly connected to the usb port of the g4 for it to be used) Could using a non-genuine Apple keyboard also be the issue with not booting into the Apple Hardware Test?

Thanks again everyone,

I really should have suggested this earlier, but run the diagnostics (extended mode), this will test RAM and logic board...

Burn it to a CD, boot to it, and test

Maybe it is time to check how much memory wastes cubase and try a little less..............

Also I would try to use under a Gigabyte of RAM phisical memory, in case it is an app that loves less that 1 gig or 768Mb.

Try other DAWs also. Maybe Cubase+Delta44 is a bad combo.

My Delta 44 is a revision B from 1999
