Question about Apple eMac G4 Desktop
Here is an old Mac trick. Zap the pram. Hold down "p","r","option" and "Mac logo" keys on keyboard and power on the computer. Continue to hold keys down until you have heard the startup chord 3-6 times. This procedure resets the programmable ram.It has been known to solve a multitude of problems.

The flashing question mark / picasso face means your com puter cannot find a bootable volume or start up disk. Basically, it cannot find your operating system to load. That could mean a few things. Mainly it means your hard drive has failed, and is not performing properly, or cannot be detected. It could also mean the bootsector of the hard drive ( where it wrote os x when it was installed ) has bad blocks or sectors, preventing it from reading the disk correctly. if the hard drive is anywhere from 3 -4 years old or older, all of these options are likely. YOu can try to power the computer on holding down the OPTION key. THis will boot your machine into start up manager. Also try this procedure with an OS X cd or dvd inserted. If you have another macintosh running 10.3 or later, that has a firewire port, you can boot the emac into target disk mode by holding down the "T" key. The other mac should be on , and hopefully the emac will appear on the desktop fo the other computer. THis allow you to hopefuly recover the contents of the emac.
Hope this helps, KEEP ME POSTED.
