Question about Apple iMac G5 Desktop
My g5 graphics card freezes only the mouse pointer will move but all other functions stop working and i have to switch it off by removing the power cable
Since you are able to see your mouse pointer move, the display is refreshing so the problem is with something other than the graphics card. Generally software / OS related.
So assuming you aren't experiencing a hardware failure try the following...
Boot from the CD the computer shipped with.
Insert CD and restart the computer holding the "c" key
Your computer should boot from the CD
If so run disk utility from the CD and repair the disk as well as permissions. If there are any errors repair again.
If this is successful your computer "should" be repaired. If it is still freezing, use your CD to perform a Archive and install which should keep all your personal settings and installed software intact.
