Question about Apple eMac G4 Desktop
This is an old eMac computer that I was given, and I've tried every password I've ever used (I have a list), but none of them work. There's a Hint (which makes no sense), but I still can't get in. Help!
I called the product's support services, and was instructed on how to unlock, and boot up my eMac G4 1.0, OS X version without a startup disk. There are also several safe, and legal sites online that can assist you, with your current issue, hotspot wifi installing plus many other questions, and needs. Hope this info has been helpful in any way, and thank's for asking !

Click the above link and scroll down to "If Unable to Boot From Installer DVD."
You out really need to get your hands on the system DVDs or CDs or a Mac OS X disc. If you know someone that has one, it would be legal to copy the version that's on your computer. If all else fails, I found Mac OS X 10.4 "Tiger" on eBay for $30. Search for "Mac OS X 10.4" Good luck!

Providing your G4 has its own monitor and both computers are up and running, the only thing you will be able to do with your crossover cable is file sharing, etc. You will be creating a LAN between the two.

SOURCE: emac won't start up
An Emac! one of my favorite CRT Macs :D
They sometimes had a problem of the vibrations of the speakers killing the CRT Tube. But it sounds like you are having worse problems.
the first suspect would be bad ram. Try removing one stick, then the other and running it with only one stick. If you only have one stick, then get ahold of a new stick and try that. There is a little rectangular cover on the bottom of the computer that your ram hides under.
If that doesnt fix it, return any purchase of sticks or ram and lament the death of your mac. Not that it is not fixable, its just cheaper to get a new one, and hey, unless your hard drive is fried, you can even get all your data off! How cool is that?
DISCLAIMER: You are dealing with a CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) Monitor. It can and will shock you if you touch the wrong bit. Possibly even lethally. EVEN if it is unplugged. If you dont feel comfortable opening the case, pay a professional.
Here is a link showing how to take apart your mac. http://www.wilko.com/emac/
This also has a good picture of the memory cover.
Once you have the hard drive out you can get and IDE to USB cable or hard drive enclosure, and hook your old drive up to your new mac, and use the migration utility (in the utilities folder) and pull your whole account (applications and all) to the new mac.
You can get a 1.4GHz Emac for around $200 these days.
