Many HP 1000's don't need a battery 'cheater' plug. If you have the
common '6615' power supply (without battery backup) the machine
will power up perfectly in about 1/3 the time needed by HP 1000's
that have battery backup (and need the cheater plug).
Also if you remove the power supply, there will be no power to the
fans, as these are fed by in-line clips to leads from the power supply
chassis (and two of the 4 fans would be missing).
This machine clearly does have a power supply, it looks like a steal

I'd noticed that it's missing something from that back. That's not the
cage is it? What is it missing?
The I/O cards go in the rear and as you noticed there are no I/O cards
in it. The memory and related cards go in the front under the switch
and we can only wonder what's there (or not there!) I don't see the
simulator plug that plugs into the rear so it's unlikely that it will
and and pass self-test but of course the seller only claimed that "it
powers up". Not that that means much. You could remove the PSU and all the
cards and the fans would still "power up". Anybody that buys anything
this with so little information is buying a real pig in a poke!
About the only good thing about it is that the CPU card is under the
chassis and most gold-scrappers miss them so MOST likely you will at least
get the CPU card.
