    So, i recently found an old Mac IIsi in my closet and decided to hook it up and boot it.
    However, the screen works fine, but when i try to boot the system, it just gives this weird ticking sound. Can someone tell me what's wrong with the system?
    Thanks!
    Here is the video, so you can hear the sound

    Whilst I haven't listened to the video, ticking sounds tend to be a symptom of HDD failure.

    Hrm, you'd need to find a list of BIOS error beep codes for that model, a quick google didnt turn anything up for me.
