Question about Computers & Internet

Connecting a second ldc display to my mac dual g5 and while it recognizes both monitors, it appears that they're flashing back and forth... as if they're trying to sink up? I only have a 64meg graphics card and wondering if that could be the problem? thanks in advance for any assistance! dc

Display not working G5


If its a PowerPC G5, Then first check display with another computer or you can connect another screen to your G5 Mac if you have a dvi port on the video card. It's most probably either the monitor or video card. Sometimes it might be defective ram.
Thanks.

I have a 17" imac g5 that will no power up. no


Check for blown capacitors on the logic board and power supply. If you have signs of blown capacitors you will have to replace logic board or power supply.
The trick is getting the computer open. Stick a credit card in the back vent at the top of the display. Their are two tabs one and each side of the vent push forward unscrew the screws at the bottom. sit it up facing you and pull the top to you. be careful of the isight cable at the top. you will need to unscrew the LDC from the housing be careful of connected cables and check under for the blown caps.

I have an iMac G5 2Ghz that when it start up you can only see video for a few seconds. I connected an external monitor and my iMac works fine but with its on LCD there is no video. I check the logic board...


Sir,
The iMac G5 and iMac G5 (Ambient Light Sensor) computers have a video out port located on the back of the computer, which will mirror video. Video mirroring means you can see the same image that is on the iMac G5's flat-panel display on an external monitor, television, or projector.
Using the video out port, you can mirror video with a compatible VGA display using the Apple VGA Display Adapter.
You can also use the video mirroring feature with a television or projector that has S-video or composite video connectors when you use the Apple Video Adapter.
Both the Apple VGA Display Adapter (M8639G/A) and the Apple Video Adapter (M9109G/A) are available separately, and are needed if you want to use your iMac with a VGA monitor cable, S-video cable, or composite video cable.
The video mirroring feature is "plug and play". Simply connect a VGA display, television, or projector to the appropriate adapter (see above), then connect the adapter to the video out port located on the back of the computer.
When you connect the adapter to the computer, the screen may refresh momentarily as the computer prepares itself for the new video output. The computer tries to match the resolution of the built-in and external display. If there is no match, the computer changes both screen resolutions and may black out areas on the built-in display in order to match the capabilities of the external display.
Important: To ensure that your iMac G5 automatically detects the external display or projector, be sure you plug the adapter into the external display or projector before you plug it into the iMac G5.
You can switch resolutions and frequencies for both the iMac G5 flat-panel display and the external display, television, or projector using Displays preferences.
Want to watch a DVD movie disc on a television that's connected to your iMac G5? Select a 720 x 480 NTSC (in the United States) or 720 x 576 PAL (in Europe and other regions) resolution in Displays preferences.
Tip: Because of the display limitations of most televisions, the images displayed on a television screen are usually not as high quality as those on the built-in display or an external monitor.


Thanks
Good Luck

G5 Mac with a GeForce FX 5200


This is only a calibration issue. Your monitor is fine. and the card is fine. I would go to your displays preference and go to calabrate your monitor again. This time just choose the calabration from the default one. Ask someone else if they can see the box you just put on there. Sometimes it helps to have a second set of eyes.
