Mac will not Start

Hi I'm having trouble with my 2005 Mac G4 laptop and I don't know what to do. When I press the power button it will go to the load up screen where there is a little grey circle that shows that it is loading up but will not proceed pass that screen. I don't know that much about computers but I think it is fried.

Dear,

check it by putting the bootable xp or vista cd and then check. it proceeds or not...

moreover, if it works then its mean the windows having some problem but if still does the same then its a different matter.
in the second case u have to go to CMOS setup page and should configure it on default and then save and exit..

do this plz

regards,

There's a possibility that heat temperature affected your laptop, kindly check beneath your laptop area if the installed cooling fan (which help regulate heat of the processor) is still in working condition, otherwise I suggest to replace it as well as purchase additional notebook cooling pad to be placed underneath your laptop so as to have enough cooling temperature. regards

Reset button on a powerbook g4


The Powerbook G4 power button functions like a reset button if you hold the power button in for a few seconds until the computer powers down.
  1. Hold the power button in for a few seconds (until you see the screen turn off/go black and hear the fans & hard drive stop spinning).
  2. Press the power button again to turn your computer on.
  3. If you have more trouble, you may need to boot in Safe Mode or "perform a Safe Boot":
    Press and hold down the "Shift" key immediately after you hear the start-up tone. Release the "Shift" key when the gray Apple icon appears on the screen.

I have a grey screen and apple on my iBook G4. No cd and I don;t know where to turn.


if you or a friend have another Mac, use it to start up the iBook in Firewire mode (hold the T key on the laptop when restarting). You can reinstall the operating system, or try to simply repair the disk with Disk Utility.

When i turn on the mac it come up to the apple, then a cmd prompt is in the left side and I cannot seem to get past this, i cannot even shutdown, unless i hold the power button or remove the battery...any...


You have a firmware problem and it needs to be reset.
try this first: If the computer is on, turn it off. Reset the power manager by simultaneously pressing and then releasing Shift-Control-Option-Power on the keyboard. Do not press the fn (Function) key while using this combination of keystrokes.
Wait 5 seconds.
Press the Power button to restart the iBook computer.

If that doesn't work, try this: Turn the laptop off. Remove the battery but leave the mains power attached. Hold the start button down until you hear a loud beeeeep! then release. Wait for the system to reboot and hopefully thats you sorted.

My G4 powermac wont start up it got small icon of a file folder with a "?" and the "smiley apple face" flashing back and forth in the file folder icon. Even when i press my power button it keep doing all...


When your mac comes up with a folder with a "?", it means that you have either a corrupt operating system, or a missing operating system. This means that your MAC OS is broken, and needs to be re-installed. You will lose all the data on your machine, so if you have any information that is important to you, you should try to get that data off of your hard drive. If you dont know how, take it to any Apple certified technician (or anyone who is good with computers) and tell them that you need the information off of that hard drive.

Mac Mini G4 turns itself ON


Have you looked into System Preferences>energy saver>schedule? Maybe it's set up to start itself. I have my mother's mac set to start up and shut down automatically. Just a thought.
