Can't print from HP 2540 aio to my Imac PowerPc G5 OS X 10.5.8 The Imac keeps telling that the printer is offline.


A quick look at the HP web site for this printer shows that it only supports Max OS X 10.6 and later. These versions only support the intel processor based macs. Your PowerPC mac is, unfortunately, obsolete as far as Apple and the peripheral manufacturers are concerned and is not supported.

How do I install 10.5 .dmg to a 10.4.11 to upgrade?


Hi,
You need to have the DMG file on an external drive connected by firewire to your G5.You may need to install the 10.4.11 system onto the external HD first though. Having the dmg on the same drive that you are trying to install onto will not work as the installer will be trying to install istself into itself.
You might find that if you use disk-Utility (Utilities folder) and make a DVD from the dmg that you can start the G5 from that DVD and them the install will work. Might have to experiemtn though - it's a while since I've done one so my memory is a little hazy.

Why does my iMAC 4,2 reject blank DVD-Rs but plays burned DVDs?


Your machine has a DVD-rom drive, but not a DVD-burner. There is a difference.

Basically, you can read and play the DVD's, but the drive is not capable of burning them.

Sims 3 won't install on my imac G4. I have Leopard 10.8 so I have the correct system requirements. When I click on install it keeps coming up Not supported on this architecture?


If you read the system requirements of Sims 3, it says that you need at least an Intel Core Duo processor, which the iMac G4 does not have. The iMac G4 has a PowerPC processor.

Can I change from powerpc to intel duo? If so, is it expensive?


Unfortunately, there is no practical way to upgrade from an older PowerPC machine to an Intel machine. In addition to the CPU chip itself needing to change, there are many aspects of the system that are not compatible. The only practical way to do this is to buy a new Intel CoreDuo machine.
The good news is that if and when you buy a new machine, you can easily transfer all of your software and settings via the OSX installer.
Good luck with your upgrade.

Booting an iMac g5 for the first time with out the system disc.


There are several reasons why you could be having this problem. You first need to know a little about the various "flavors" of Apple computers and operating systems.
There are two brands of processors: PowerPC (this is what you have) and Intel (what Apple switched to after your model).
There are also different types of system install disks: Specific Version (this is what would have came with the iMac originally and contains only the drivers for that model). Retail Version contains drivers and "Universal" processor code for all of the supported models and both types of processors.
Intel Macs format their drives differently than PowerPC macs. So, if the used drive was formatted for Intel you wouldn't be able to mount it, if the install disk that was used was Specific Model type rather than Retail type when the system was installed on your used disk, you wouldn't be able to mount it either.
The drive you have must be formatted for PowerPC and system installed from either the Specific Version or Retail install disc in order for you to mount it.
