There might be some crumbs between the membranes of the keys stopping the contacts from connection, if all the other keys work. Y and N are the most susceptible because of the angle of the keyboard, especially if you use your right hand to eat your sarnies with.

If you are brave try dismantling the keyboard. Undo all screws on the bottom, pop the space key off, is quite hard, give it a good yank, don't worry it shouldn't brake, then undo the two silver screws and the keyboard should come apart.

Re assembles in a similar way just ensure you get the space bar leaver back into its runners.

You will be amassed at how much stuff is in the keyboard even if it looks clean on the outside.

N.b. please only do this if you are prepared for the keyboard to be totally broken, but if some of the keys don't work then it might as well.

Upgrade for a 2005 apple mac desktop tiger 10.4


The highest you can get up to is leopard 10.5. Unfortunately, after 10.5 Apple moved to Intel getting rid of the powermac processors.

Depending on your specs I would recommend sticking with tiger, but leopard should run fin on your powermac. It runs great on mine.

You're not supposed to be able to use the mouse to adjust these settings. These settings can only be adjusted from the buttons on the monitor!

Please read the user manual for your monitor for exact instructions.

Blue screen on start up


We need to clarify. Your couldn't be running Leopard 10.6 because that's Snow Leopard which doesn’t run on Power Mac G5s.

So assuming its just ordinary Leopard 10.5, have you tried firstly unplugging all USB and FireWire devices, leaving only the screen, keyboard and mouse?

Resetting PRAM does almost nothing. Have you got a Leopard DVD somewhere you could start up from?

I would by pass disk repair and unfortunately go straight to reinstalling Leopard. When you get icon and it asks what you wish to do you want to reinstall and safe old files. Once you reinstall leopard you will find all your old files in previous system located in hd icon.

Is the hard drive SATA or IDE. On IDE, I know you can use delpart. Locate a SATA tool to wipe the partition of SATA drives. Install LEOPARD as usual then after rebooting.

Leopard won't install


Found this on the net:

Those upgrade cards always have given me a problem with migrating to Leopard. If you can upgrade to a used G5 or even Intel basd mac you might be more happier with less hassle.
