If the noise does not depends on cables and connections, or interference from devices, then It looks like there is some blown component inside.

    Test a different cable.

    If you cable or the unit are near to power adapters, power cables, other devices, ic can be interference, that is easy to check.

    If you can test the Firepod on a different Mac, even if I dont think it depends on the computer. Usually, constant humming noise and static noise are caused by electronic faults.

G5 power mac 2005 late quad core 2.5ghz usb wont come on front and back!


Only attempt if you feel able.

before going to the extreme of fault finding, just try this.

place face down on soft material, remove all screws placed for safety, latex gloves and with a hand held Hoover and fine soft clean dry paint brush get the insides and fans a good spring clean.
reasemble, hopefully dust removal do the trick, mine did, so possibly yours.

Quad-Core and Eight-Core Mac Pros (2009 editions)


New Mac tower boosts performance despite speed drop

Last year’s standard Mac Pro () featured a 2.8GHz eight-core Intel Xeon processor based on the Harpertown/Penryn architecture. This year, there are two models: a quad-core system with a 2.66GHz Nehalem Xeon processor, and an eight-core model running two quad-core Xeon processors at 2.26GHz. Also new to the Mac Pros are Nvidia GeForce GT 120 graphics cards and a revamped interior designed to ease user access for upgrading internal components.
Similar but different

Aside from the second optical-drive slot on the front, the Mac Pro continues to use the same big-handled, aluminum case as the Power Mac G5, introduced nearly five years ago. There are some minor changes to the exterior, though—specifically in the type and number of connections. First, the two FireWire 400 connectors from previous generations have been replaced with backward-compatible FireWire 800 ports, bringing the number of FireWire ports to four—two on the front and two on the back. The five USB 2.0 ports, two on the front and three on the back, remain. On the graphics card, one of the two dual-link DVI connectors at the rear of the system has been replaced with a Mini DisplayPort connector, which lets you connect either to Apple’s 24-inch LED Cinema Display () or, with adapters (not included), to a second DVI display.


The new Mac Pros have been remodeled on the inside to provide for easier access to components.

Upon opening the case, you immediately notice major changes in the layout of the components. The memory modules are no longer installed on two sliding trays—instead, the memory and processor all rest on a sled at the bottom of the case, which you remove by releasing two latches. The quad-core Mac Pro has four memory slots that ship with 3GB, 6GB, or 8GB of 1,066MHz DDR3 SDRAM modules; the eight-core Mac Pro has eight DIMM slots for a maximum of 32GB of RAM. The memory design no longer requires the large heat sinks.

The Mac Pro still has four internal cable-free hard-drive slots, using a sliding tray to attach the drives directly to the motherboard. Now, though, the large plastic piece holding the fan near the front of the Mac Pro is much smaller, giving your fingers more room to grip the hard-drive sleds. This is a small but welcome change. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve struggled over the years to remove that first drive. Another nice design change helps ease the removal of PCI cards from the four full-size PCI Express 2.0 card slots. In the past, to remove a card, you’d first need to turn two large thumbscrews that held a small plate keeping the cards in place. Then you had to feel around behind the card, searching for a little plastic tab mounted on the motherboard, which you needed to lift up in order to release the card. With the new Mac Pro, that second step is much easier. You now simply push a single thin bar that extends across all the PCI Express 2.0 slots to release any or all cards. Apple has also made installation of its add-on Apple RAID card much easier: you just put it into the clearly marked top slot, and you’re ready to go.

Installed in the first PCI Express 2.0 slot is the new Nvidia GeForce GT 120 graphics card with 512MB of video RAM; the last generation of Mac Pros came standard with an ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT graphics card with 256MB of memory.

Im using Logic Pro 8, on a powermac G5 desktop, When I try to use absynth 4, logic crashes everytime, this wasnt always an issue, it was working fine for months, and this started happening out of nowhere....


An update of some kind, or some file the software uses could have become corrupted.
I would suggest uninstalling and reinstalling.
If that doesn't work, part of the security of Absynth is to cause crashing on "illegal" or "cracked" copies of the software.
Follow this link and read up on similar problems.

Why does my desktop pro keeps shutting down unexpectedly


Just to clarify a G5 is not a Pro or "desktop Pro" (Mac Pro is an Intel based machine). Yours is a "Power Mac". Install a temp monitoring app to see the temperature (mainly the CPU temps). Mine runs around 50 to 60 Celsius and never more than 72. If the temps run to high she will shut down. G5 are great machines but it's not rare for them to go bad. Power supply issues and liquid coolant leaks are well know. Fans controllers have stopped working (the fans them selves are usually OK).

Twist the Macbook body while turning it on. If that make the image come back, you have a broken logic board. There are Mac Repair Guides that show how to open a Macbook. Watch out for the ribbon cables, those tear easily. Replacement parts are usually available on Ebay. There are third party services that can do it for you, like Mac Repair NYC.

PowerMac G5 fan keeps running -- LOUDLY


I had the same problem... It is the logic board... You need to get it replaced. One way you could try to fix it by resetting the board there should be a little black dot behind the front two fans when you open it up. Press and hold for a few seconds... this resets the board to factory settings. The other way is replace the internal battery. and the third is to replace the logic board. $150-200

Will virtual pc for mac v7 work with powerbook g4 running 10.4.11


Sorry, but the G4 and G5 desktops have chipsets released prior to the Intel agreement allowing pc's with CoreDuo and Macs with DualCore chips to exchange data, even though Virtual PC for G3 through G5 chipsets did work in running MS OS's prior to Vista, including XP, on mac platforms.

Now, if this helps, you might be able to secure an older version of Virtual PC, since your version works on current Macs and PCs with Vista, to run XP on your G4 and G5.
