Screen freezes when reloading system disc


Instructions

Back up any important files already on your G4's hard drive. A factory restore completely wipes the system of all files you've created so, if possible, make sure you have another copy of all your files, images, music, etc.

Connect your G4 to its charger. Restoring the computer is a delicate process that erases and reinstalls the most basic and important files of your system. If the computer runs out of battery before the restoration is complete, files may be damaged or left uninstalled. The result of this varies from having to restart the process completely to permanent dysfunction of your computer. Play it safe. Make sure you have plenty of battery left and the computer is plugged into the wall.

Locate your Mac OS X Install CD/DVD. If you have lost the original disc or never received one (a common problem when purchasing used computers), there are a few options to consider. The first is to ask around; if you have friends or family with a Mac computer they may still have their CD. It would be usable on your computer. If this option fails, look online for a download of the installation CD. Some sites offer installation CDs for all kinds of computers, including the G4.

Insert the install disc into your computer's disk drive. Once visible, click the "Install Mac OS X" button. Follow the on-screen prompts to set up your computer preferences and begin installation.

Select a destination disc for the installation. This is typically the "Macintosh HD" icon. Next, click "Options," and follow the rest of the on-screen prompts/instructions. After this, the software is installed. The computer should reset itself or can be manually reset by holding down the power button twice.

Where can I plug in a microphone on my PC G4, need it to help in learning a new language?


It depends on which G4 you have. If it's a Quicksilver , there is no Mic in, and you'll need a USB audio adaptor to connect a microphone.
Other G4s, it's on the back, right next to sound out.

I would like to connect an Apple Studio Display 17" to my Macintosh Server G4. Can it be done? What adaptor is needed if any?


Apple Studio Displays connect via DVI cables. The PowerMac G4 (all versions) support both VGA & DVI. You shouldn't need any adaptors. It should just plug into the back.

Unable to turn on the computer and power supply is OK because other devices are plugged into it. Tried procedure in apple manual which says to hold down power button and at same time hold down 4 buttons on...


The iMac G4 will refuse to turn on if the logic board battery is dead. Since this model Macintosh is now about eight years old, it's quite reasonable to suspect your battery is dead. Battery replacement is a relatively simple task for a certified technician, but unfortunately the battery in this model is not a user-replaceable part.

you should never shut it off with the power button unless it is not responding. When you turn the computer on, hold down the option key, and select Macintosh Hard Drive when it gives you a picture of a hard drive.

Adjust the preferences for each of the two options:
Put the computer to sleep when it is inactive for:
1min 15min 1hr 3hrs Never
Put the display to sleep when it is inactive for:
1min 15min 1hr 3hrs Never

Set these for Power Adaptor and Battery separately.

AirPort Password


Hello,

This article provides instruction on the installation of the AirPort Wireless Networking card into a Power Mac G4 (AGP Graphics) computer. Similar instructions, with graphics, are included with the AirPort card.

1. Shut down the computer (choose Shut Down from the Special menu) and unplug all cables except the power cord.
2. Touch the metal PCI access cover on the back of the computer to discharge static electricity. Avoid walking around until you have finished installing the card. Unplug the power cord then lift the latch on the side of the computer.
3. Gently lower the side panel onto a clean, flat surface. Lower it onto a soft cloth to avoid scratching the case.
4. Connect the antenna cable to the connector on the end of the AirPort card. The cable is usually stowed on the side of the PCI card guide.
5. Remove the metal clip and pull the AirPort card from the adapter card, shown below. The adapter card and clip are not used with your Power Mac G4.

6. Insert the AirPort card (serial number side up) through the opening in the PCI card guide, and into the connector on the main logic board as shown below.

7. Raise the side panel and press it against the case until it snaps into place.
Instructions for using the AirPort software are in Mac Help, available in the Help menu.

Wireless Internet access requires an Internet service provider (fees may apply) and AirPort (or AirPort-compatible) wireless Ethernet card and base station. Some ISPs are not compatible with AirPort. For more information, see technical document 106590: "AirPort: Requirements for Wireless Internet Access"

try the above link to get more detail.
Thank You
