PowerPC :: 1.25 GHz Processor From A MDD G4 Would Swap Into A G4 Quicksilver?

Apr 20, 2007

I can't seem to find specific information that would tell me if a 1.25 GHz processor from a MDD G4 would swap into a G4 Quicksilver (733 MHz) I have sitting in a corner.

They are both single processor machines, but I question the compatibility. I don't have the MDD machine with the 1.25 GHZ processor yet, so I can't look at them both for comparison.

PowerPC :: G4 Processor Swap - Digital Audio?

May 25, 2007

I have a couple of power mac g4s around the place and I recently swapped some of the processors around. I originally had a pair of g4 466 "digital audio" machines and a g4 400 "sawtooth". After moving them around I end up with with a 466 "digital audio" a 533 "sawtooth" and a 350 "digital audio". Does it have to do with the bus speed?

PowerPC :: G3 Beige Minitower Failing To Boot After Processor Swap

Jun 1, 2010

I have a G3 Beige Minitower (233MHz model) that I recently upgraded with a A/V Personality card I got from a friend of mine. It booted with the new personality card just fine. Now I got a hold of a G3 450MHz ZIF processor card and I put it into my G3, swapping out the old 233MHz one. I also took off the red jumper block and put some jumpers in place for a 450MHz processor. (Thanks to MacAddict Issue 30 for the pinouts, see "Overclocking your G3"). Now I got it booting, chiming and the power light going green, but no video coming out of the onboard video card (that came with the machine). I also have another Hard Drive, a Ultra-Wide SCSI card and a USB card, all 3rd party.

PowerPC :: Using Quicksilver IDE PCI Card?

Aug 29, 2008

I have an M8439 800/1.5/160/DVDRW 10.3.7 / 9.1 classic. I want to run Digidesign Pro Tools v5.1, which requires OS9 and an IDE HD to record to. I have purchased a WD Caviar SE - EIDE HD Question: can I just run it inline with the operating (boot) HD off the ATA bus, or do I need to get an IDE PCI adapter card?

PowerPC :: Can Use X850 XT In A G4 Quicksilver

Oct 19, 2008

I purchased a used ATI X850 XT AGP 2-slot for PC, not the single slot found as OEM on PowerMac G5s. The goal is to flash it with the equivalent Mac bios so that I can use it in my Mac G4 867MHz Quicksilver (2001). By the way, I already know that I have to cover up pins 3 and 11 in order for an 8x AGP card to work in my Apple 4x AGP slot.

PowerPC :: G4 Quicksilver DP 800 Won't Boot

Dec 3, 2009

I just set out to initialize the drive of my old G4 800 DP, using the system disc. Everything began fine but when I returned the screen was black, and video wasn't being picked up. I decided to force reboot and start over, but now I cannot get my mac to boot at all. Black screen with no video. Cannot boot from firewire target drive. Machine won't recognize system disc. When I boot there is no chime. I hear the machine apparently working hard to read the system disc but nothing happens and it eventually ejects the disc. I've tried 3 different discs, so I know it's the machine not the disc. Pressing "option" at startup has no effect. I also know it's not my LCD, as it works fine with my other machine. Anyone have any idea about what's going on here and what I can do to regain access to my machine?

PowerPC :: Hard Drive Not Mounting In G4 Quicksilver?

May 14, 2009

My hard drive from my G4 733mhz wont mount at all. The ? in a blue folder just appears. I have tried to start up from an external mountable drive and the ? again appears. When I disconnect the internal hard drive completely and boot from my external drive it boots up.

Prior to this problem I took the hard drive from my G4 733Mhz and put it in my G4 867Mhz computer to load a new disk image. I did this as I didn't have access to an external mountable drive then. After doing this the hard drive doesn't mount in either computer and when connected all other mountable drives wont mount. I have the internal drive set to master.

PowerPC :: Video Card Upgrade G4 733ghz Quicksilver?

May 12, 2007

pls be patient with my English, i'll try to do my best.
Finally i decided last week to upgrade an old Powerpc G4 733 Quicksilver (model before 2002 vers.)

I changed combo with a good Pioneer dvr-112d.
Now i'm asking u an indication: find a video card better than nvidia mx 32 installed with two important targets
1) Should support wide screen 1680x1850
2) should support core image tech in order to work better with last Tiger.
reading around i'm sure fx5200 satisfy nr2 but doesn't support wide, ati like 9600 had big problems of compatibility with my G4 model.
Pls could u point me to the right way ?
wich is the best video card compatible with a 733 ghz quicksilver ?

About Hard disk, one more question , i have 128 gb limitation.
I'm not gonna change the controller, is there any chance to mount a 7200rpm 16mb 250gb for my system ?

PowerPC :: Quicksilver Power Supply On A Gigabit Motherboard?

Mar 7, 2008

Recently I didn't do my research, and I purchased a Quicksilver power supply to put on a Gigabit machine. I noticed it had four extra pins which look like some of the ones they use to power processors in some PCs (tho I've come to find this is for the ADC port). I dug a little deeper (Googled "powermac_g4.pdf") and found out that some of the pins have differences between the Gigabit PS and the Quicksilver PS.

Has anyone else had an experience like this? Will the PS work without any wirecutting or do I need to get a new one?

PowerPC :: Installing Two SATA Drives In A Quicksilver 2002?

Jul 10, 2009

I have two drives in my Quicksilver 2002 G4, one is a 250GB which can be fully used, the other an 80GB. Can U rid both of these drives and install two SATA 1.5TB drives? I do not want to use the PCI slots for a SCSI card and wire additional drives that way, because the transfer speed will be limited to 40mbps I believe. I have a Sonnet card a dual PPC 1,8Ghz card, a PCI USB 2.0 card and have other open PCI slots, but finally ran out of storage, and have a use for this machine to hold a LOT more. Other than the transfer speeds possible on SATA, are there any other differences between the original IDE (ATA) drives? Do they connect the same way?

PowerPC :: Finding Expert Advice - How To Remove A HD From A PowerMac G4 Quicksilver

Jan 27, 2010

I am wondering how I go about removing my Hard Drive from my Power Mac G4 QUicksilver? I don't know the first thing about removal or location of the HD?

It is a 40GB Ultra ATA/66 (5400 rpm)

I would like to remove it and fit it with a Hard Drive case enclosure so I can use it as an extra external for backing up data.

I was told by Tiger Direct that this enclosure should work:


I would ultimately be connecting to a macmini for backing up data periodically.

PowerPC :: Swap TiBook VGA LCD For DVI Screen?

Jul 30, 2006

Does anyone know if I can swap a VGA Tibook LCD screen onto a DVI Titanium Powerbook? Is the higher resolution in the screen set up itself? I actually wouldn't mind at all if it would work because I actually like the lower res screens of the earlier tibooks. Just wondering if it can be done.. and I don't mean taking out the actual LCD screen itself from the Tibook case and frame, I mean actually SWAPPING the LCDs and plugging them in. I just wonder if the older LCD could be plugged into the logic board or not. It seems that they would fit the case. I'd really like a faster DVI Tibook with the lower res screen because the font sizes are larger.
