SOURCE: mac g5

 For a mac, you need to use the grey disk that came with your computer that says Disk one on it. Put it in your computer and turn the computer off. Hold down the N key and turn your computer on. It should ask you to select your language. Select it, then an installer window will come up. Ignore it. Go to the menubar at the top and select Utilities> Password Utility. Select your User account, type in a new password, and click change. you can then restart your computer and log in with your new password.

SOURCE: miniDV to DVD

Do you have Final Cut Pro? If not which editing system do you have. Imovie may do the trick. You need to import the video onto the computer and then process it and export it to DVD via a program that has that capability such as Final Cut Pro or Final Cut Express (I believe that will do it, too).

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Video ram error 2ATI/1/4:113-A14404-118

This one is pretty clear. Your machine is a June, 2004 model. Your video RAM is bad. Video RAM is not user-replaceable on the Radeon 9800 XT, so you will have to replace the Radeon card itself.

SOURCE: Apple mac G5 freezes when booting up.

Try unplugging all Firewire/USB devices. Also, unplug the power cord from the computer. This resets the logic board. If that doesn't isolate the problem, put your Original system CD that came with the computer and hold down the C key. Boot up and run Disk Utility. Run the repair disk and then repair disk permissions. Reboot and try booting your system again.

How do i upgrade to 10.5


Hi Chris,
if you mean Mac OS 10.5 code name 'Leopard', then you might need to get the original DVD from someone, for example through eBay or Craigslist.
Please note that you cannot download it via the Apple Store and it is also no longer supported by Apple either.

Unless you have an older Mac, I would recommend to upgrade to their most current OS version.

Cheers,
Roland

Upgrade for a 2005 apple mac desktop tiger 10.4


The highest you can get up to is leopard 10.5. Unfortunately, after 10.5 Apple moved to Intel getting rid of the powermac processors.

Depending on your specs I would recommend sticking with tiger, but leopard should run fin on your powermac. It runs great on mine.

Computer freezes at grey screen


  1. Start from your Mac OS X Install disc: Insert the installation disc, then restart the computer while holding the C key.
  2. When your computer finishes starting up from the disc, choose Disk Utility from the Installer menu. (In Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you must select your language first.)
    Important: Do not click Continue in the first screen of the Installer. If you do, you must restart from the disc again to access Disk Utility.
  3. Click the First Aid tab.
  4. Click the disclosure triangle to the left of the hard drive icon to display the names of your hard disk volumes and partitions.
  5. Select your Mac OS X volume.
  6. Click Repair. Disk Utility checks and repairs the disk.

While trying to install OS10.5 and it will attempt to but it freezes, you the Apple booting circle it stops.


Probably the OS 10.5 version your're installing is not compatible or supported by the system motherboard of your computer model Apple Power Mac G5. per my research from Apple website herewith is their solution quote on what applicable OS to install for such model: "Power Mac G5 (Late 2005) and iMac G5 (iSight) models require Mac OS X 10.4.2 or later, you can t install Final Cut Pro 3.x or earlier versions on these computers. Final Cut Pro 3.x and earlier versions are not supported on any computer running Mac OS X 10.4". best regards

The drive in the G5 may not support DL discs. Open the system profiler (From the apple menu, select 'About This Mac' then select 'More Info'). Click on 'Disc Burning' in the left hand column. You will now get the details about the disc drive including which discs are supported.
