Hello, I assume that this is a FireWire external drive. Do you have any other FireWire devices (another drive, older iPod, etc) that you can test the port with? If other devices work, then the port on the drive has malfunctioned, or the drive needs repair (try Disk Warrior or First Aid in Disw Utility within OS X Applications...Utilities). If those other devices don't work either, then the port on the computer may be the problem (meaning logic board). You can also try creating another user in OS X, and testing the ports and the drive under that user. If all is well as another user, then you may have a software issue in your own user account.

While trying to install OS10.5 and it will attempt to but it freezes, you the Apple booting circle it stops.


Probably the OS 10.5 version your're installing is not compatible or supported by the system motherboard of your computer model Apple Power Mac G5. per my research from Apple website herewith is their solution quote on what applicable OS to install for such model: "Power Mac G5 (Late 2005) and iMac G5 (iSight) models require Mac OS X 10.4.2 or later, you can t install Final Cut Pro 3.x or earlier versions on these computers. Final Cut Pro 3.x and earlier versions are not supported on any computer running Mac OS X 10.4". best regards

Hi, You need a Tiger or Leopard installation disk. Then You start up the system holding down "C" instead of installing you start the "disk utillity" and repair it.
You can access singel user mode by starting up the system holding down command + S.

Your Imac may be one of those affected by Apples purchase of inferior capacitators from Taiwan. If you are less than 3 years from the purchase date, apple will repair the problem for you for free. Just take the unit to your nearest local Apple Genius or tech. If you are outside of the repair extension guidelines, I have provided a link here which can show you or someone more skilled how to repair the problem. Ordering a new motherboard and power supply will set you back a lot of money, however the following guide and pdf give you step by step instructions on how to ressurrect your dead imac without speding more than $100.00. I was able to repair my imac using this guide and it was worth it to save a $2k computer that was only 3 1/2 years old. Check it out:

the following information (in italics and bold)  is taken directly from: http://www.jimwarholic.com/2008/07/how-to-repair-apple-imac-g5.php.  (this site is complete with instructions, manual and the full compliment of materials available at an extremely affordable and fair price. I took a chance and repaired my own, it is not as hard as it sounds1)

The iMac G5 Repair Extension Program for Video and Power Issues applies to first generation iMac G5 computers that have video or power-related issues as a result of a specific component failure. If your iMac G5 is exhibiting any of the symptoms listed below and your computer's serial number is within the noted ranges, your computer may be eligible for repair, free of charge. If Apple or an Apple Authorized Service Provider (AASP) determines that your iMac G5 computer is eligible as part of the program, the repair will be covered by Apple for up to three years from the original date of purchase even if your iMac G5 is out of warranty.

This is a worldwide Apple program.
Affected systems will exhibit one of the following video- or power-related symptoms:
Scrambled or distorted video 
No video 
No power 
Note: If your iMac G5 is not experiencing any of these symptoms, you do not have to contact Apple or any Apple Authorized Service Provider.

Which iMac G5 computers are affected by the iMac G5 Repair Extension Program for Video and Power Issues? 
The program is available for certain first generation iMac G5 models that were sold between approximately September 2004 and June 2005 featuring 17- and 20-inch displays with 1.6GHz and 1.8GHz G5 processors.

The affected iMac G5 computers have serial numbers where the first 5 digits fall into the ranges noted below.

Serial Number ranges:
W8435xxxxxx - W8522xxxxxx 
QP435xxxxxx - QP522xxxxxx 
CK435xxxxxx - CK522xxxxxx 
YD435xxxxxx - YD522xxxxxx 
Some second generation iMac G5 computers have serial numbers that fall within the upper band of the ranges listed below. Only first generation iMac G5 computers are affected by this program.


Where do I find the serial number of my iMac G5?
The 11-digit serial number is located on a label under the foot of the iMac G5. There is a bar code underneath the serial number.
To view the label, hold the sides of the iMac and gently lay the computer face down on a soft, clean towel or cloth.



Is the iMac G5 Repair Extension program available for other Apple computers? 


This program applies only to the systems noted in this FAQ. Other versions of the iMac G5 line are not part of this program. Click here for more information on how to identify iMac G5 models

White vertical line going through my IMAC screen


The line is an indication that there is a failure in the display, most times the failure will be limited to the line you see but occasionally the problem will spread, causing more lines. the only way to fix it is to have the display replaced.

IMAC G5 Boot problems


This sounds like the HDD hard died. Sometimes you can hit "option" at the startup to see if the HDD is corrupt. If you see a file with a questionmark in it, then you need to reinstall the OS, BUT before doing this, restart it and hold "apple T" it make the HDD and the computer a giant external hardrive. Just get a firewire cable and backup the hard drive onto another system before reinstalling.

If you see a disk icon come up, there is definate directory problems as it still recognises that it has a hard drive. Disc warrior might fix it.
