Suddenly, after no previous problems, when computer (Mac- G5, older, not intel) started up in the morning, the monitor, although power light on, displays only black screen. Monitor is lcd Formac- not sure if exactly the model selected from list available. Could I maybe connect the monitor with a laptop to see if it works- then problem probably with G5 computer & connectivity?

Try hooking it up to another PC first, but more likely to have failure in the power supply caps or failed inverter cicuits.

Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Make sure that the input on your monitor is on the correct selection.
Is this a dual monitor setup? If so unplug one of the monitors and restart the Mac.

I left my mac g5 open overnight i forgot that i did not shot it down i just remembered the next day that it was still open but when i used my computer the monitor is blinking and i cant do anything now


By pressing and holding down the power key for about ten seconds on the front of the G5 you can perform a hard shutdown although you will have lost any changes on any open documents. Once the machine has shutdown you can then restart per normal. Hope this helps.

Power mac g5. Although I show Ethernet connected, i can't get network


You've established that you have a working physical connection. But your network addressing and routing is apparently not setting up.
The usual configuration is to set your Mac to "Using DHCP" and your router or other network interface to provide DHCP addressing. (If the address that shows up in the window on your Mac starts with "169..." it's a bogus address that means your DHCP isn't coming through.)
The most likely culprit here is your router. Take your router out of the chain or command entirely and plug your Mac directly into your network interface (assuming they are not the same box) and see if things suddenly start to work. If so, follow the configuration instructions that came with your router until you get a working connection through it.

I think the problem is in the power supply if it doesn't come up and the computer did not make any noise

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).

Try a reboot. If it remains, shut down and leave off for about an hour. If it comes back you probably have a problem with your video card. You can have it replaced (it will be pricey though), or consider getting a new computer. I had a similar issue with an Intel iMac 24-inch out of warranty and had the card replaced but your machine is much older.

Will virtual pc for mac v7 work with powerbook g4 running 10.4.11


Sorry, but the G4 and G5 desktops have chipsets released prior to the Intel agreement allowing pc's with CoreDuo and Macs with DualCore chips to exchange data, even though Virtual PC for G3 through G5 chipsets did work in running MS OS's prior to Vista, including XP, on mac platforms.

Now, if this helps, you might be able to secure an older version of Virtual PC, since your version works on current Macs and PCs with Vista, to run XP on your G4 and G5.
