In order for a Mac to open files generated on a PC, you must have a program capable of reading these files. The new version of Microsoft Office defaults to saving files in a new format which is not compatible with earlier versions. This can be rectified by 'Back Saving' files to an earlier version of Office in the 'Save' menu.
If you have files that you know can be opened with an application that is installed on the Mac, ctrl/click (right click) on the file and chose 'Open With' from the drop down menu. This will allow you to choose the application.

Cant print using Dell A920 printer on my imac. printer set up shows driver is correct I think and the printer name is correct.


So clearly the Macintosh sees and recognizes the printer. WIll it let you queue a document to the printer? After you do, you will see an extra icon on the Dock that represents the printer queue. Open it up and see what is happening to the printer job. If it disappears, it was sent to the printer and the Mac thinks it was printer successfully; if it isn't printed then you have either a bad printer or a bad printer driver. If it stays in the queue and goes to "hold" state, look in the log to see what the error was -- the Mac is unable to negotiate with the printer to get your file printed.

How can I load OS on imac?


Sadly, without an OS disk, there won't be any easy way to load an operating system on this computer. What you can do though, is order a set of replacement OS disks, from Apple (1-800-MYAPPLE) And have them shipped to you. It should only be 1 or two disks, so I don't see them costing you an arm and a leg (maybe about $50 USD tops). If you can find someone that has an identical model of iMac that you have, you could try borrowing their disks.

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.
