Question about Apple Power Mac G5 Desktop
My unit won't power up. I got up one morning try to boot the system up and nothing. I purchased the unit in October of 2004, never had any issues with it, the unit is used mainly for music production; with a keyboard, and an interface unit. I have Pro tools, and Logic installed, with an occassional external drive added.
When you state it wont power up do you not get any lights at all when ya press power button?? If you get the white light when ya press power button???? If you are getting a lite from power button then you may need to just reset the PMU on the system board IF you are not getting a light then you will need to replace the power supply.

It could also be a bad power supply. Mine went out a year after I purchased it, and I found that this was a known issue with some Power Macs. I had to ship it off for repair, but it was recovered under warranty (minus shipping).

Is this a G5 2.7, dual 2.5 with a multicore processor using a liquid cooling system? If so open the case and check to see if any liquid is actually leaking. See xlr8yourmac.com for a whole bunch of postings on the issue.
