Question about Apple Mac mini G4 Desktop

1 Answer

Shaired well My neighbor removed his bladder tank and pump now my system pumps water 350" up to the surface and 100" to my house and an additional 400" to my neighbor's house. Should the removal of his pump put additional strain on the well pump, if so what should be done? The model or brand name is not to be found, I do know the system is very old. It could very well be a home made system. The tank has no bladder, the air valve is on the T at the bottom and this leads me to believe there is no bladder. the tank is 24" wide 5' tall this has been working well until recently the air pressure doesn't seem to last nearly as long as it did before the second pump was removed from the system.

Mouse moves screen down

What kind of mouse is it? Does it need batteries? If so, may be indication that new one(s) are needed. Would be better to get the energizer batteries 6x or 8x. Also check the surface the mouse is on, in addition to making sure lens (red section under mouse) has no dust or 'stuff' on it

Sky wifi works near computer but not downstairs

I take it is you only have the mac downstairs or is it the case that the mac does not work and another computer does. The only thing from reading some stuff on forums is that sky wifi does not have a good reputation when it comes to range, a lot of people say that they have the same problem. If it is not the latest wifi from sky contact them and tell them you have a problem and ask them to replace it.

The other thing that can affect range is whether your house has thick walls and floors. Do you also have anything else that may be pumping out a signal e.g. a cordless phone this could affect the wireless signal.

Courser is out of control. It moves it self and does not move to where I want to click. Please advise how to fix it.

Try using the mouse on a different surface or mousepad. The optical sensor may be confused by glass tabletops or patterns in your existing surface.

How to get wireless internet

Acquiring wireless internet service can be done several ways. The most common way is by using a wireless router - such as an Airport Express - in combination with the modem your internet service provider has given you.
This creates a Wireless Area Network in the range of about 100-300 feet depending on the strength of your router and sources of interference.
Once using a wireless router with your modem, your Mac should be able to connect to it by clicking on the Airport icon in the upper right hand corner and selecting the name of your network.

Other ways to get wireless internet include but are not limited to using an antenna that plugs into your computer in conjunction with a cellular network. Such devices are commonly available but are not going to be anywhere near as fast as a wireless connection created using the method described above.
Keep in mind that using a cellular antennae usually requires additional software supplied by your wireless provider (for example, AT&T or Verizon) whereas your Mac should be able to connect to a wireless network created by a router without any additional software.

All of a sudden, my iMAC wont turn on.. Any suggestions???

It is best to check with an Apple store, assuming there is one within 100 miles or so, especially if you are under AppleCare, yet--unlikely. My 20" iMac G5 gave up the ghost a year ago. Their cost to repair/replace the logic board was >$800. I've heard 3rd party as low as ~$500. I decide to change to an MacBook 13" (Early 2009 white, then current) and love its convenience.
Try the Macintosh boards where I have posted "Apple - Support - Discussions - iMac G5". No luck for me though. If you have the early G5 that I have, pull power plug and any cables, place face on non-scratching surface, rotate 1/2(?) turn the 3 screws on the bottom, lift off the back and stand, use the power cord to try to start it. There is a button for this but varies with models. If only one LED lights or 2 for a short time you may have my problem. First, after the back is off check if the capacitor tops are bulging. If so that is a known repair, but its coverage expired.

G4 boots, but no video; blank screen.

I think you should either try another monitor or take your G4 to a friend or neighbors house with a working monitor, and plug it in to see if it is your monitor that is dead.

Upgrading MAC G4's video

You can upgrade RAM & Video card in it, also download all the latest updates for everything. Then find the driver online for your particular video camera and download and install it. Then the MAC should pick up the camera and have the ability to to go that extra mile for you.
