The 6100 won't put out a video signal when the PRAM battery is dead.
First guess, replace the battery. The "quick" hard restarts
sometimes allow the machine to start with the dead battery.
That's my guess. You can usually get these machines to start up by
doing a three fingered salute (Command-Control-Power) after power up.
Or use the reset button on the back of the 6100.

I'm Also looking for SoftRAID 2.1.5, the version that will actually work on
Mac OS 8.1. It would be wonderful to set up a RAID 1 array on this charming
and elegant 68040 Macintosh....
Unfortunatly you can't find this legacy software anywhere; I've looked on
eBay and Craig's List :-(
Thus far I've given it an:
Atto Silicon Express IV
Radius Thunder IV GX 1152
2 x SIMM Doublers to allow 2 of the slots to use 2x32 MByte SIMMS
(Only 2 of the SIMM Doublers will fitt in this machine) Giving it 192 MBytes
And no I'm not putting a Video Spigot or VideoVision card in this
machine...Those cards are possessed!
I love my 840AV, it loves me. Will you share your love to?
