All of the recent mac pro's have a little handle you lift up on the left side, and the side drops down. This is true of G3-Intel. Which model do you have?

Why doesn't power button on mac pro desktop computer work When computer is plug in and button pushed?


This may be a broken button. Not a terribly hard fix. I once fixed a computer and put a giant red button on the side they could hit to turn it on. Customize it!

How do I clean the dust out of my PC?


Turn the pc off and unplug all the wires and peripherals that are attached onto it.

The desktop chassis should have a side panel that comes off, that is screwed onto the body. once you get the panel off, you can use a can of compressed air to get rid of the dust and debris from the fan, air vents and the heatsink.

Here's a pretty neat tutorial with do's and the dont's, on how to go about cleaning your desktop. give it a read before trying it out.

My mac Pro Desktop mirrors the monitors all by itself. It also turns the volume up and down by itself. Is this hacked??


Have you checked or unchecked the turn mirroring on in display preferences? Sound output settings: be sure you are set for internal speakers and not one of the other options (unless you are using USB or some other output device). This is not a hack: Hackers want to use your machine to send email or style your data. They don't care about monitors.
Also try repairing permissions in disc utility, and then repair the disc. If that fails, run Disc Warrior and clean up the system.

File with ? mark in Mac OS x Lion.


The clicking sound is probably the hard drive trying to find the boot sectors. You should be able to open the DVD drive by holding the (wired) mouse button down while turning the computer on.

Casing getting hot, fan going mad then slowing down


Have you ever removed the side panel and cleaned out the dust from inside the computer case?

If your fans or air inlets get clogged up with dust then your machine will run very hot and could eventually shut down or cause permanent damage.

Unplug all the cables from the back of your pc, and remove the 2 screws from the back panel that secure the side panel. Then just pull back on the side panel and it will pop off.

Clean out all the dust from inside the case. You can use a vacuum hose but don't bang into anything with it. Also use a small clean paint brush to lightly brush the dust off of the fan blades and the CPU heatsink and around the power supply air vents. You can also use a can of compressed air if you have it to dislodge the dust and then **** it up with the vacuum.

Good luck and please comment back and RATE if this was helpful.

Fans on Mac Intel Tower


I would suspect it needs a good internal cleaning. The accumulated dust will cause the computer to overheat. Disconnect all cables and take the unit to a place where you can clean it. Remove the side panel and then with a can of compressed air or an air compressor blow all dust out of the unit. Pay special attention to the heat sink on the processor. Make sure you clean the power supply fan. Be sure and not touch any internal components without first grounding yourself to the chassis. It is best to do this outside as the dust will fly everywhere. You should clean the inside at least once a year. Merry Christmas.
