Question about Apple Power Mac G5 Desktop
I was getting a sign on the screen to restart the computer after 3 second shutdown , Mac Japan says to push down the command , the apple buttoms along with the P anbd R buttons and that should restart the computer , but all I get is a gray Apple on screen and the whelel turning around and around and around .
The screen telling you to reset the computer is called a kernel panic, this is what happens when the computer knows something - either software or hardware is wrong with it,but it doesn't know exactly what. I would recommend you use the restore dvd that came with the computer,boot from it by holding C while you turn on the computer, and do an "Archive and install" to get the operating system back up and running, this will not delete any of your info as long as you choose the archive and install under options during the install.
