Re: Apple power mac g5 desktop

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.

While trying to install OS10.5 and it will attempt to but it freezes, you the Apple booting circle it stops.

Probably the OS 10.5 version your're installing is not compatible or supported by the system motherboard of your computer model Apple Power Mac G5. per my research from Apple website herewith is their solution quote on what applicable OS to install for such model: "Power Mac G5 (Late 2005) and iMac G5 (iSight) models require Mac OS X 10.4.2 or later, you can t install Final Cut Pro 3.x or earlier versions on these computers. Final Cut Pro 3.x and earlier versions are not supported on any computer running Mac OS X 10.4". best regards

My mac g5 is not recognising my WD elements extrenal hard drive, this is the first time I have plugged an extrenal hard drive of this sort into my mac. Thanks

My computer does not recognize the Drive.
A: First, check to make sure that all of your connections are secure. Then check if your External Hard Drive is listed in the Apple System Profiler. If the driver listed is “USB Authoring Support” or “Toast USB Support”, disable this Extension(s) in the Extensions Manager. These Extensions can cause a conflict with the Drive.

I have a G5 Mac with a Power PC Dual Processor. When my computer seems to be doing too much it goes to sleep mode. At first I thought it was a over heating issue and then I thought it was a power issue...

check the setting of the G5, you might have it going into sleep more sooner than expected.

also g5 do tend to heat up, check for burned capacitors, also the fans has to be running at a certain speed, the computer will tell you if it in sleep mode.

click on apple logo / system preferences and display

it should be there

Can I connect my G5 Mac to an iMac and use the same Internet

yes, you ;could set up a network using the G5 as a server, but it would be better to get a network router on your internet connection and hook both computers up to that.

Problem with our Apple Macs shutting down

A quoted suggestion from my Mac Guru: "They need to turn off the Energy saver preferences for processor cycling and hard drive spin down. They would actually be better off turning them down anyway since the G5 duals run really hot and aren't the most reliable model Apple ever shipped for motherboards failing."

As for the iMac 99, It would be more helpful to know what OS the unit is running. I remember hearing a story about a disgruntled employee putting the 'shut down app' in the start up items folder. This caused the Mac to start as normal and then shut down after the startup was complete. Try starting up the machine with the extensions off. 'Hold down the shift key at startup'
