I think what you have done is accidently magnified your screen slightly. To correct this hold down your ctrl key and move your finger on the mouse scroll button back. Hope this helps.

My desktop was turned off for a couple of months, and when i tried turning it on a file folder with question mark is flashing in the middle of the screen. what do i need to do?

That folder with the question mark means the computer can't find the operating system. This normally means one of two things: either your hard drive has gone bad, or your operating system has gotten corrupt, or a combination of the two. If you have the original install discs, you can boot into them and try to repair it that way- if that doesn't work, you'll most likely need to change the hard drive.

G5 keeps powering up for a few mins then switches off?

Thank you for contacting Fixya Support, I am glad to assist.

There are a few steps you can try to troubleshoot this issue:

Try a PMU Reset:
* Turn of your iMac if it is already turned off
* Disconnect all connections to the iMac except the power cord
* Now disconnect the power cord for approximately 20 seconds
* Reconnect just the power cable the keyboard, mouse and power cord, and then power your iMac G5 up.

* Check to see if the iMac boots up normally without power interruption.

* If the iMac G5 shuts off again, try these steps, another recommendation would be to remove all connections including the power cord, and lay the iMac G5 on soft cloth face down and with a philips screwdriver, remove the plate on the bottom of the iMac G5 where your RAM memory is located.
Before removing the RAM however, touch your hand on the metal boot to discharge any static current you carry for approximately 5 seconds.

Now remove each RAM card and then reseat (re-install) each card.

Restore the RAM card cover with your Philips screwdriver, reconnect your power cable, keyboard an
d mouse and turn on your iMac G5.

See if this second procedure helps if the first procedure does not work.

Let me know if this helps.

My display is sooo big that i can't really see the whole page. I held down the command button while rolling the ball on my mouse and my screen got bigger and now I can't get it back to normal.

Do the same but roll the ball the other way.
Alternatively, open system preferences, go to universal access and turn Zoom off. Or on the keyboard press "Alt Command -" all at the ame time.

My iMac G5 1.8 GHz 2GB ram computer desktop

If you can run it in safe mode, that means that you have an extension problem. I had most of the time problems with the ATI extensions.
First of all try too boot on another account, an new one would be good, to check if this is not account related.
Secondly i would reinstall the system (a clean install would be good, tough you can try an archive-install)
Thirdly if it isnt fixed I would delete all ATI extensions instead of the one that your graphic card uses. to delete: go to /System/Library/Extensions . 
Hope that helps

No output from Keyboard

Hello, Please reboot the computer in "safe mode" holding the shift key at startup. This will deactivate temporarily your extensions. If the keyboard works in safe mode, then go to the apple menu, system preferences, and accounts. Add a new account, reboot and log into your new account. If it still works, then that means that you have a corrupted preference Best regards
