Question about Apple Power Mac G5 Desktop

1 Answer

My HP Officejet 6500 printer will not work on the PowerMac G5 with OS X4.9 System; it needs upgrading to OSX.5.

HP no longer provides the driver for my Mac OS X10.4.9; I need to upgrade my Mac OS to OS X5.0. Where can I download Leopard OS x.5.0?

SOURCE: unable to upgrade to system leopard on my eMac

I don't know that you necessarily have to get rid of your computer. I have a G4 circa 2000 with 400 MHz processor. I run Tiger OS 10.4.1 and can run Illustrator CS on my machine. 
It is not running at lightspeed mind you but it still works fine. 
There may be some interim updates that you need before going to leopard... I would try talking to someone at an apple store or call tech support about it. Apple is really good about customer service.  
Your eMac has to be "younger" than my tower G4 Gigabit Ethernet model so don't give up too soon. I don't think CS3 will use like 50% more resources compared to CS so your computer should be able to handle it. 
Good luck,

SOURCE: Imac g5 cant log in get grey screen

Hello, this can be either a software or hardware problem, 
To know this, please try to repair your hard drive by pressing "cmd - S" at startup, that will take you to single user mode. you will see a black screen with unix lines. Here you type "fsck -f" and hit enter. Wait untill the repair is finnished. If it shows problems then you have a hard disk problem. If not, try to reinstall the system using the DVD, and choose "archive and install" option, to keep your files and settings.

I have an apple mac g5 10.4 osx. the mouse has a light instead of ball and i got a warning the battery was going dead. i have bought 8 batterys and none work i bought panasonic cr2032 but no work. can you...

Thanks for contacting Fixya Support, I am glad to assist.

The issue may not be with the type of CMOS battery you are attempting to use, so much as what you are doing once you install the new CMOS battery.

You need to make sure that after you install the battery, before replacing the Air duct and closing the chassis, you press the SMU Reset button on the logic board then attempt to restart your Power Mac G5 and see if it makes a difference.

I would recommend you view the PowerMac G5 manual I have provided for you below, in order to get more a perspective on the process of replacing a battery in the PMG5.

Replacing the Battery in PowerMac G5

Let me know if this helps.
