Question about Apple Power Mac G4 Dual Mac Desktop
I just hooked machine back up after a month of no use. Now on startup I get nothing, just a blank screen.
Sounds like a system error. The only way round this is usually to start up from your original OS disk.
You have quite an old mac (relatively speaking) and sounds like you are running OS 10.4?
Try starting up from the disk. You should then be able to see your drive. If you can see the hard drive you might back up important files now (if you can connect a external hard drive) The first thing is to try and repair the OS on your drive with the apple disk utility on the disk. You'll find that in the drop down menu. If it cannot repair you will have to re-install the OS. Archive the old system and install a new one. A clean install is usually better. Then get all the updates.
With your machine you will be limited as to what OS you can put on it.
