Hold down the power button until the computer shuts off. The press the button to restart and see what happens. There are several different ways to startup. immediately upon hearing the boot tone, press and hold the shift key to boot in safemode. If this fails as well, then you will need to boot with the install CD. This is done by immediately pressing holding the C key upon powerup

I have G5 PPC mac tower - power light is on, but the unit will not turn on. No fans are running. Just a bright white light on the power button.


First if side door or plastic shield is off, fans won't come on and unit won't start. Fans only run when unit is running hard and that's not always. Back to your original issue - not running, couple of things to try - first being side door and latch on back, make sure both are closed. Try restarting by holding start button on front of tower. If that don't cure it, disconnect power lead in rear for about 30 secs then try to restart.

You should be able to if you are using quark license administrator as QLA uses the ethernet address commonly known as the MAC address and this is hard wired on the computer and not the hard drive to verify the license.

Screen became fuzzy and locked up


Most likely a hardware problem. Boot off your install disk and run disk utility as a first thing to make sure the disk is ok, and so you can take action if its failing to save your data. Try running the disk first aid. This may correct your problem. If not, try swapping out your ram.

Mac wont turn on


G5 will not boot off of OS9. Since you are more of a pc guy, think of it like this, you buy a used newer pc meant to run Vista, and you are trying to load Windows 98 on there. You can run any of the OSX flavors on there...
Depending on your Model (scroll to bottom) of G5 you need to be running...
2003 -> at least 10.2 Jaguar 2004 -> at least 10.3 Panther 2005 -> at least 10.4 Tiger
10.5 Leopard is Apple's newest operating system and it can be run on any of these models. You need to buy a retail copy (has drivers for every model) unless you buy exactly the right system disk for that specific model.
OS9 can be installed and run inside of OSX using something called Classic mode. This would be like running a virtual XP Pro inside of Vista.

If your video card was not working correctly your problem would be evident in other applications as well, I suspect you have a software problem on the computer, most likely with the OS 10 software and possibly a conflict with the version of Quark you are running.
