Question about Apple Power Mac G4 Desktop

1 Answer

Comp comes on, apple logo, then blue screen with circular icon

I have a mirror drive dual drive 867mhz apple, it worked fine the whole night. I went in to pull up school files and it wouldnt allow me too so I rebooted. once I did I got the forementioned problem. I cant do anything the eject button, nothing! I recently added 1Gig of RAM but thats it. The only thing I can think of is I downloaded the latest update (security, itunes) it also a few days earlier said that my start up disk was getting full) which i went in and erased 2 gig worth of files! I'm a nursing school student who cant afford another comp and probaly cant afford to get this one fixed....is there a solution to fix this?

    Did you add the 1 Gig of RAM, or did someone do it for you?

Iphone will not turn on! Shows Apple logo then fades out?


Leave the phone plugged into the car charger with the "plug into itunes" screen long enough to build a charge. It sounds like the phone is dying before it gets a chance to connect to itunes and start charging through the computer. If this does not work then the store clerk was correct and your battery will need replacing

Apple icon is all that comes up.


If iPhone won't turn on, or the display freezes or doesn't respond
  1. Press and hold the Home button for at least six seconds, until the application you were using quits.
  2. If that doesn't work, turn iPhone off and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPhone for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then slide the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
  3. If that doesn't work, reset iPhone. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears

More resets:
Try This:
1. Remove Sim Card
2. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until Apple logo appears
3. Replace Sim Card
4. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until normal phone screen appears.


Also, Try this:
1.) Shut down the iPhone 3G.
2.) Start up iTunes
3.) Hold down HOME button on the iPhone 3G
4.) While keeping the HOME button depressed, plug in the Sync cable
5.) A message will pop up to ask if you want to reset.
6.) Just click YES and the reset process should start.

Apple iBook G4 14 inch 512 ram 1.42 GHz. 3 Year Warranty expired last December but I have lots of software and Classic programs too so want to fix it. Here goes. Running X-Plane Flight Simulator for many...


Sounds like a GPU problem to me.

You can go diy approach which involves taking the laptop totally apart and then heating up the GPU with a heat gun.

If you google you'll find guides for this.

Best of luck!

When I start up my G4 I doesn't get past the white logo screen with the circular icon spinning. Have removed battery and depressed start up button until a loud beep occurs but still nothing


I had a problem with my hard discs. That's where I got, but my screen froze after a few minutes. try pressing apple + s after the chime. See if you can search around there. Also, try holding the shift key when you hear the chime, or when booting if you don't normally hear the chime, and hold it 'till you see the apple logo.
