If the screen will not come out of power save mode it is generally the fault of the computer not pulling out of power save mode. Does the screen come out of power save mode wheny ou start the computer? If it does I would look at your settings and try and solve the problem on the computer side.

Turn off the monitor;
Unplug the monitor from the computer;
Turn on the monitor;
Try going to the <menu> of the monitor, if there any menus avaiable you will see it, if the monitor stays in sleep mode probabily you have another problem related with some electronic protection of monitor electronics and then i think you sould take it to maintenace tecnitoin of your area,

I have a Mac G4 desktop. It froze up so I restarted using the power button and when it came up it had a blinking question mark inside a folder. It will not do anything even after restarting several times....


This means the mac can not find the system to start up, you can try holding down the alt key as you start the mac, this may bring up a choice of systems to boot from if not then try holding down the shift key at startup, as this will boot without extensions loading. If none of this works then you need the startup dvd that came with the mac, if you dont have it the you need a retail copy of the mac os that will boot your mac , if its g4 then osx 10.3 or 10 .4 will work.

cheers

My powerbook g4 is not starting. it opens the gray screen and just says i need to restart the computer. i tried restarting it and removing the battery a bunch of time and nothing is happening. HELP!!!


I am going to have you take your Mac into Safe Mode to see if we can't remove a possible folder(s) that may be affecting your Mac's start up function.

Try these steps:


-SAFE BOOT MODE-
• Reboot your Mac
• Upon restarting your Mac, press the Shift key.
• Hold the Shift key until you see a White Screen with Gray Apple icon and eventually a spinning gear.
• When you see the Spinning gear, release the Shift key.
• Allow the Powerbook G4 to continue booting up. Also this may take a little while
(NOTE: this may take anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes to load to the Safe mode screen depending on the performance of your Mac, but if it exceeds this time, shutdown your Powerbook G4 and try just once more. It may have just frozen up the first time around for you.)

• You are going to enter the Safe Mode (which looks like your main desktop environment - the only difference is certain start up items are disabled.)

• Once within the Desktop in Safe Mode
• From the Finder Menu, click Go> Go to Folder
• Type in this line: /System/Library/StartupItems
• This path, is going to take you to the System Library folder which has all of your Mac OS X Startupitems.
• Remove all of those folders to the Trash.

*Reboot your Mac normally and see if you can access your normal User desktop environment.

At times this procedure does help for gray screen issues so give this a try and let me know if this helps.

Thanks!

No monitor works on my G4 Power Mac


Hi,
If no monitor works on your Mac, but the machine is booting, the only assumption I can draw from this is a faulty display card.
Try another display card and see if this helps.

Powerbook g4 going to white screen only!!


Do you have any external harddrive attached to it? If so, remove it before restarting. Try to start it up in safe mode by holding the Shift button down at startup: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1455

Monitor


Are you sure this is a monitor problem? I have a user with a Mac that occasionally has the same symptoms you describe. For me I generally have to shut the computer down and physically unplug the power cord from the computer (not monitor), reattach it and restart. Let us know if that works for you.
