iMac G5's cannot run windows alone, but older software can be purchased like Virtual PC to run windows on that unit.

SOURCE: Apple iMac 17 Model A1058 won't turn on

Re the light turning on for about 3 secs.
Does the computer make a 'start up' chime or any other tones?
If not, this could be for a variety or reasons.
Firstly you need to verify that the power supply is working. Remove all connections from the computer including the keyboard and mouse. Try to start up again. If the computer still fails to start up, you will need to gain access to the computers internals.
Lay the computer face down on a soft cloth to protect the screen. Undo the 3 silver screws on the lower edge of the computer. (one at each end and one central. These are captive screws.)
Lift the rear cover away from the main body of the computer.
On the Logic Board there are 4 diagnostic LEDs indicated by a yellow arrow on the board. To the left of these LEDs there is a small button. This allows you to power on the computer with the rear cover removed. Connect the power lead. LED1 should be 'ON'. If it is 'OFF' then you need to replace the power supply.
Turn the computer on by using the internal power button.(LEDs 2&3 should now be 'ON'. If LED2 only comes on momentarilty then replace the power supply).
Does the computer start up normally after pressing the internal power button?
- Yes: Press and hold the power button until the computer powers off.
• Unplug the power cord from the iMac, and reinstall the back cover.
• Return the computer to the upright position.
• Plug the computer back in, and press the power button to turn on the computer.
• Make sure the computer is starting up properly. If the computer will ONLY start up
from the internal power but will not power on from the power button on the back
cover, the power button on the back cover may be faulty.
- No: Reset the SMU.
• Unplug all cables from the computer, including the power cord.
• Wait 10 seconds.
• Plug in the power cord while simultaneously pressing and holding the power button
on the back of the computer.
• Let go of the power button.
• Press the power button once more to start up your iMac G5.
If the computer starts up normally then shut down and replace the rear cover.
If you feel uncomfortable about working on the computer, take it to a reputable repairer.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: inch wide vertical white band on my Imac screen?

If the white band appears right from start up, the display needs to be replaced, if it comes on after it starts, it is most likely a software problem.

SOURCE: inch wide vertical white band on my Imac screen?

I have some good news and some bad news for you. First the bad news. the LCD panel in your unit is damaged beyond what 95% of people could fix at home. what has basically happened is the very very thin signalling cables that run around the edge of the screen is damaged. your only option is to replace the panel, which can be a major hassle unless you are very comfortable with a screwdriver and have at least disassembled laptops and know what the parts are.
Bad news as well, part is about $150.

good news. most shops can do this repair for you, esp. if they deal with laptops.

I can give you the replacement info if you wish to attempt it yourself, but as i said, it can be a hard repair to do.


Mark.

On my Apex TV screen, some of the picture is cut out. How can i adjust the TV resolution?


You cannot adjust the resolution in CRT TVs. Its not like a monitor that is compatible with a number of resolutions from a computer for example. CRT TVs resolution's dont work like that.They take an input usually from a composite, Svideo or coaxial source and display it on the screen.

When you say the picture is cut out is there a black bar on top/bottom/middle of the screen? In older CRT TVs that usually means a problem with the TV itself and would need to be taken in for repairs or replaced.

My mother has a Apple iMac 17 Model A1058. I'm not quite familar with iMacs..and can't figure out why it powers off, once it's turned on.


hmm may be a problem with it or the energy saving function is set, click the apple top left and go to system settings, if its not there, check on the task bar (gears picture) or in finder and it basically has the same standby settings as a windows pc

You have a burn in problem from watching widescreen movies.If you have access to a signal generator or tv setup disc run a perfectly white screen on the plasma for about 30 min.This should help even out the pixels on the display.
