There are so many reasons of why computers start slowly. they may be so due to

  • virus
  • missing system files
  • etc
if your system has no antivirus, you first install and scan the whole of it. and if this fails to work with your problem try to install the oprating system. but be ready loosing your important files.

if you can't manage all these, take your computer to the nearby service shop for more assistance.

good luck.

My Apple iMac G5 Mac Desktop can't start, it is giving me a white screen and an apple logo in the middle. Help me out

You will need to acquire and install a new power supply. I would suggest having a professional do it, being the iMacs are difficult to work on and not for the novice.

When I press the power button, I hear a dial tone chime 3 times, the power light flashes 3 times, and the fan runs but the computer does not start. It's a single-processor G5 desktop Mac that I bought...

Three tones is not a good sign, should hear only one. Go to Apple website, go to "support" and then G5 and there's is trouble shooting guide, (sorry, I'm not at my computer - I'm replying via my phone) Try starting in "safe" mode. Press shift key when you hear the chimes

Why does my desktop pro keeps shutting down unexpectedly

Just to clarify a G5 is not a Pro or "desktop Pro" (Mac Pro is an Intel based machine). Yours is a "Power Mac". Install a temp monitoring app to see the temperature (mainly the CPU temps). Mine runs around 50 to 60 Celsius and never more than 72. If the temps run to high she will shut down. G5 are great machines but it's not rare for them to go bad. Power supply issues and liquid coolant leaks are well know. Fans controllers have stopped working (the fans them selves are usually OK).

Video ram error 2ATI/1/4:113-A14404-118 in Apple hardware test Power Mac G5 DP 2,5 ATI Radeon 9800 XT

This one is pretty clear. Your machine is a June, 2004 model. Your video RAM is bad. Video RAM is not user-replaceable on the Radeon 9800 XT, so you will have to replace the Radeon card itself.

G5 shuts down and restarts withour any input from keyboard or mouse

Check for loose power cord -- both ends. Check for faulty or switched power outlet (move to a different outlet).
It's doubtful this is a hardware problem in the G5. A hardware problem would conceivably turn the power off, but it isn't likely to turn it back on.
Realize that in System Preferences it is possible to program many desktop models to shut down and start up at certain times on certain days. I am assuming your report means that your machine starts up in quick succession after shutting down, which makes this possibility remote.

I have an apple G5 single core

It sounds like you're asking to see if you can add a "core" to your G5. If so, that's not a possibility. Dual core is nice but the G5 is still a powerful machine. If you've maxed out your ram and running a good graphics card and you're still having problems running programs then you should consider an upgrade to a dual core/quad core machine.

Apple PowerMac G5 Mac Desktop

Yes, that is a major factor. Because the files arent actually kept on the desktop, so when you boot it, the machine has to" remember" where that content is actually stored. You should also defrag the hard drive with DISK UTILTIY.


You can also check the space left on the drive. It should state at the bottom of the window when that volume is selected. Or you can also click on it once and hit the apple and "I" key..

APPLE+ I also know as "get info" from the top file menu. If you do a considerable amount of downloading, or if you have a massive itunes folder and you are saving that to your internal drive and not an external, you operating system has to weed through all that information. If youre getting spinning beach balll as well, I'd recommend install more RAM modules.

Hope this helps, keep me posted.
