I believe you are supposed to hear four bongs when you reset PRAM.

My iMac G5 computer starts up and then gets to the apple logo ,it ses like it loading up but nothing is happening.


The PRAM is the first thing to try and then there might be an internal reset button next tot he installed RAM. Seen it in older eMac and iMac desktops but not sure about yours.

Resetting the Parameter RAM

One easy fix for many issues is to simply reset the PRAM to its default state. This will cause some data to be lost, specifically the date, the time, and the startup volume selection. Luckily, you can easily correct these settings using your Mac's System Preferences.
  1. Shut down your Mac.
  2. Turn your Mac back on.
  3. Immediately press and hold the following keys: command+option+P+R. That's four keys: the command key, the option key, the letter P, and the letter R. You must press and hold these four keys before you see the gray screen during the startup process.
  4. Continue to hold down the four keys. This is a long process, during which your Mac will restart on its own.
  5. Finally, when you hear the second startup chime, you can release the keys.
  6. Your Mac will finish the startup process.

Startup switch on PB G4 17 not getting apple sound, takes numerous times to boot up. Using Tiger OS, upgraded to latest. Works fine, otherwise.


If a Mac is shut down while the volume is set to zero, the standard Apple startup chime will not sound, so it is impossible to say whether or not this symptom indicates a problem.
For a startup issue such as this, I would recommend zapping the PRAM and resetting Open Firmware.
To zap the PRAM, start with a powered-down machine, press the power button, then immediately hold down the four keys: command, option, P, R. After ten seconds or so, you should hear the optical drive reset, and then the startup chime (because the volume is reset to full by this procedure). Ten more seconds, another reset, another chime. After the second time you hear the chime, release the keys.
Shut the machine down again (if it doesn't start up successfully, hold the power button until the power goes off). Press the power button, then immediately hold down the four keys command, option, O, F. You will see some tech-speak on the screen, then it will wait for input. Enter the following three lines, pressing the "return" key at the end of each:
reset-nvram set-defaults reset-all
After the last line, your Mac will reboot itself. It should now boot much more reliably. If it doesn't, chances increase that you have a hardware problem. You may want to run the Apple Hardware Test from the DVDs that came with the PowerBook to check your memory and logic board. Failing this, you are in for a trip to the shop.

My iMac G4 turns on and goes to the grey startup screen with the apple and loading circle, but stays there, and gets stuck, and after a few minutes shuts off on it's own.


You may have to reinstall you OS e.g. tiger, leopard with the disks that came with your computer. that should solve your problem

Navy and white silvercross dolls pram bought 1980 new


I know exactly what you mean about the classic Silver Cross look but if you fit two larger diameter wheels the pram would not sit level unless one of the axles was repositioned to compensate.

Wheels have been retained by a number of methods and then hidden behind a (usually) chrome cap that must be carefully prised off. In more modern times it has become usual to combine the chrome cap with a spring retainer. It is fitted with the gentle tap of a mallet but patience is needed to remove it and no small amount of carefully applied force and even then there is about a 50% breakage. It is possible your pram used these.

Good luck!

Four Beeps on startup on a Panasonic uj-810b


sounds like it's trying to boot to the dead drive- pay attention to the screen when you power on F12 or F1 whatever get's you to boot menu- change the order to exclude the broken drive- it should stop beeping.
