Question about Apple Power Mac G5 Desktop
I've got a G4 Quicksilver machine 466Mhz that I just had repaired, or so I thought. The power supply was replaced and at the store; after examination, the tech guy was pretty sure that that was the problem.
I managed to locate a used power supply on the 'net and it was installed. I was assured the machine booted OK in OSX and OS9. But when I brought it back to school (where I work) it booted once and that's it. The repair place went out of business but that still leaves me with the eternal question mark. I have tried booting in safe mode (to run file system check), but it does not find a device.
I do have the OS DVD but I can't open the superdrive. What's the trick to get it to open?
I have two similar Macs in my classroom attached to a printer; Our school is Mac-phobic so I enjoy given the kids an opportunity to use my Macs.
And now, I just found out, the machine won't even turn on. Is it dead or worth trying to fix?
