    I have tried two other machines that I know are working with working video cards and the same result on the KOGI - just a grey screen, no menus or icons - can't even bring the internal OSD?

First, you need to eliminate the video card or the Kogi as the problem, which is quite easy to do by testing a known working monitor on the Matrox card.

My powerbook g4 won't reboot. It freezes at the grey screen with the apple and won't let me log on .

Power the machine down. Press the power button, then immediately press and continue to hold the shift key. This will perform a "safe boot," skipping any of the boot-time software you may have added to your machine. If it still fails to boot, more involved diagnostics are required.

I have a powermac G4. When I turn it on it chimes but there is no display and a red light on the motherboard. Checked the power supply - all voltages are good. Bad motherboard or video card?

There is one red LED on the Power Mac G4 QuickSilver logic board. It indicates that there is power to the board and does not imply a fault condition.

Do you hear mechanical activity from the drive? It is possible the machine is running fine except for the display or graphics card. Try another display. If you have another Mac, you can also try starting the machine in target disk mode by holding down the T key at boot (your machine was built in 2001, so it should have this feature) and see if you can access the internal drive from another machine. This should eliminate the motherboard as the culprit.

I tried to hook up my power mac g4 tower to a monitor and the screen is not coming on. It states monitor is on, now connect to computer.

Really, the only way to troubleshoot this problem is to connect your display to another computer and see if it functions; then connect your computer to another display and see if it functions. Once you have determined which unit isn't working correctly, you can proceed from there.

HELP!!! I am trying to start my Powerbook G4 but as soon as it turns on I just get a grey screen that says that i need to restart my computer. i tried restarting it like 10 times. what else can i do?

Also, check your RAM bay port to see if one of the RAM boards came dislodged and is not inserted correctly. Could also be one of your RAM boards is not compatible or one of the RAM boards is defective.
