Question about Apple iMac G5 Desktop
I trying to diagnose this for vendor of mine. The iMac starts up but then goes to a black box screen that says I need to restart this computer, in three different languages. After restarting numerous times it still goes right to the same screen each time. I am currently running Disk Warrior to rebuild the Directory structure. Any other suggestions?
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.
