Are there any logos or icons on the screen? If it only ever displays a gray screen, it means there could be a serious hardware issue. If you have the original disk for the Mac you can hold down the letter "C" and then power on the computer. You can also try holding the "Option" key while booting to see if there is a "Recovery" partition as a bootable choice. It could get quite involved at this point, so you may want to take it in for service.

Have you zapped the p-ram? Hold Apple, Option, P and R keys when you hear the chime. Wait for four more chimes and release.

IMac G4 Mac Desktop: imac g4 wont boot up scree's just blue?...


If it only boots to a blue screen, try booting up in Safe Boot mode:

If this does not work, boot from your install DVD and use Disk Utility to repair the disk:

Damaged 24 iMac screen - want to use ext monitor via "mirroring" in screen preferences, but cannot access system preferernce due to damaged screen...any suggestions


There is an elegant way to solve this, but it requires another compatible model Mac.
Boot the damaged Mac into FireWire Transfer mode by holding down the "T" key immediately after hearing the startup chime. Attach a FireWire cable between the two Macs. Start up the other Mac by holding down the "option" key after hearing the startup chime. Choose the startup drive from the broken Mac. Now your good Mac is booted off the drive of the broken Mac, and any configuration changes you make will be made on the hard drive of the broken Mac.
Attach the external monitor temporarily to the good Mac. Open System Preferences and set the monitors up in mirrored mode. Shut down the good Mac. Then hold the power button in on the broken Mac until the power turns off, and remove the FireWire cable.
Now move the external monitor to the broken Mac and boot it. It should come up in mirrored mode.
