You might need to check the usb connections for the keyboard and mouse. and see if they are correctly connected, also to clean the connections with a q-tip from time to time. Also you might want to switch to another usb port. to narrow down the issue. Because if say you change to another port and it still persists, even when running a usb hub with external power, and even a external firewire hub with usb connection then the issue would be the com board for the usb and firewire. and hopefully the G5's usb, firewire ports are on a separate board that is then ribbon wired to the main board. because if its just ports ribboned to the main board you will need to get a new logic board. and that is not cheap. unless you still have your applecare. then just take it in to get replaced.

My G5 freezes constantly. What can I do.


Try running Apple Hardware Test on the machine (it's one of the discs that came with the machine.) Also, if it's freezing by showing the spinning rainbow cursor (beachballing) you may have a failing hard drive. That wouldn't be uncommon for how old the machine is.

Apple Power Mac G5, 2 ghz Dual processor (not Intel) freezes and fans go on full if left idle for a period of time (roughly half hour or so). Run disc first aid, zapped PRAM. Not sure what else to do at...


It sounds as if it could be a thermal issue.
Open the side and clean out the dust from inside the Mac.(Use a clean 1" paint brush)
Take the main processor fans out and clean the heat sinks for the processors.
If you are still having the same issue, then your only option is professional help.
