It can not find the hard drive or the startup folder on the hard drive. Try and fix that by putting in the original boot cd/dvd and repair and choose your hard drive start up folde as boot device. If you can not your hard drive may have died.

How do I install osx 4 on my G4?


I will assume you are talking about 10.4. You will probably need to install 10.3 first and then use an upgrade CD to get 10.4 installed. I would not install a system higher than 10.4 on this system.

Cd burn error apple mac mini


Did you use the same Maxell blank CD's in the other mini?
If so, it sounds like your drive may be failing/failed. Try another brand of CD in the superdrive just in case. I have found that drives that are beginning to fail will have problems with some brands but not others. Sometimes they'll go totally dead a while after that point, others will still be ok with another brand that they "like" more.

Sekondhand G4,no disc,no password.


Try hitting the ENTER key when prompted for the password. Let us assume the seller was kind enough to remove the password before selling the Mac. If you are not in luck, try borrowing a System disk from a friend (most Mac Users are really friendly), and maybe they offer you a copy of the CD/DVD. After booting from the CD, you can reset the password easily.

Installing OSX 4 with external DVD writer


You're in luck if you have another mac because you can now use it's drive to install from. Connect the computers together using a firewire cable then restart the mac with the broken drive holding down the T key at the bong until a firewire symbol appears on screen. The other mac can now see it and can install the software to it as an external drive.

Otherwise you would need a firewire cd drive or USB to Firewire adaptor for your cd drive. If you get one of those you hold the alt key while rebooting and this will display a list of bootable devices.

On the latest OSX disks it has a folder for network cd/dvd access for intallation but again you need another mac to mac use of it.

All the Best

Sound Audio card?


Macs don't generally use a replaceable sound card in a slot like PCs. Instead they usually have sound capability built into the main board.
Which model of Mac do have and what model of CD player did you put in it?
Can you hear sound from sources other than the CD player - such as iTunes, internet, system alerts, etc?
As I recall, one CD drive I upgraded on an older Mac did require a light wire harness for the audio output. None of the DVD drives I have replaced recently have needed this.
Did you, personally, remove the old drive? If needed for the new drive, I'm guessing the old drive would have had an audio cable too.

G4 MAC PROBLEM


Hi,

When you ran diagnostics, were you starting up from the AppleCare CD/DVD (or whichever diagnostics disc it was)? If you were and the system didn't crash, that would likely point to a software problem causing your trouble. Have you tried booting up in 'safe mode' by holding down the SHIFT key? That would be my next troubleshooting step. Also, what computer is this?

G4 dual 1ghz not switching on


Many times if the battery on the motherboard dies, the computer won't startup at all. Try replacing the battery and push the tiny reset button on the motherboard and see if it will power on then.
