PowerPC :: Using The IMac G4 Flat Panel LCD Case?

Jul 14, 2009

i've been searching for a way to use an iMac G4's LCD Monitor as an external monitor for any other computer. So far i haven't found a solution for it, so during my search i read that it is possible to remove the LCD display from the iMac G4's case and install another LCD display that you know for sure it will work on any other computer. So, my question is, is this possible? if so, what LCD monitor would fit in the case? i know that there's a problem when trying to pass the wires through the arm, but i think i can handle that since i already tried with some random cables, so if you know of an LCD that could fit in the case.

PowerPC :: Imac G4 Flat Panel Was Unplugged - Now Won't Turn On?

Nov 30, 2008

I am dog/housesitting for my inlaws. Yesterday, before I left my house I shut down my iMac as always and for the heck of it, unplugged the computer, modem, and router stopped home today, and decided to hop on the computer real quick. plugged everything back in and the computer will NOT turn on. No noise, no lights, nothing. It was fine yesterday--I shut it down, unplugged it, and plugged it back in today---now it is completely dead! So I tried other plugs and no dice. Never had any power or shutdown/starup issue before. I called Mac---but outside of driving an hour to the Apple store--it wasn't much help. The guy did say it was most likely the cord. I would be wiling to try that--as it would be a cheap option, but it looks like I may have to drive to the Apple store anyway to get a cord that fits. I also tried resetting the PMU that Apples site recommends--and nothing. Any suggestion would be great. With the holidays the thought of dropping big $$$ on computer repairs is not appealing.

PowerPC :: Getting No Signal Between G4 And New 26" Dynex Flat Panel Tv / What To Do?

Jul 17, 2010

I just bought a Dynex 26" flat panel tv and hooked it up to my mac g4 using VGA cord. I selected VGA as the input with the TV's remote, but after the initial Apple icon shows up when I start the Mac, the TV then displays the "No Signal" box. I do not have the TV hooked up to my digital cable box, as I have no connectors for that. I only want to use it for my Mac. Thanks for any help.

OS X :: Can I Install Leopard On 800MHz 17" Flat Panel IMac

Aug 23, 2009

I know that's below the required speed but there's Leopard Assist. As can be seen on that page, it says "Uncertain" ONLY for my iMac.

Has anyone done it with this iMac? Does anyone know? I'm running Panther now and, these days, that's no place to be. I want to get Leopard on my Mac before I have to <shudder> switch back!

Software :: Spinning Ball On Mac Flat Panel

Mar 2, 2010

I have a 700 MHz iMac flat panel with 1 GB SDRAM and running OS 10.4.11. Almost every time I go to do something, I get the spinning ball and have to wait before it performs the action. I even get the ball briefly when I click OK on a dialogue box. I have run the disk utility to repair disk permissions several times, but that doesn't seem to help. What can I do to get the Mac to run faster as it used to do?

Intel Mac :: Connecting A Flat Panel To It With A Thunderbolt To HDMI Cable?

Feb 20, 2012

How do I connect a newer 2011 27" iMac to a flat panel via a Thunderbolt to HDMI cable? I've already tried this with two different brands of flat panels (RCA and Samsung) and both get no signal. The iMac does recognize the model of flat panel connected to it, the flat panels do not recognize the iMac, nothing but a blue or black screen. Already tried powering down and resetting both the iMac and flatpanels, resetting the memory on the iMac, trying all the HDMI ports on both flatpanels. Nothing works.

iMac, iOS 5.0.1

The Dell SP2309W 23" Flat Panel Widescreen Monitor with WebCam is only $300, seems to good to be true. Is it a good monitor, in the same league as the HP LP2475w or the Apple 24" LED display?

PowerPC :: Removing Scratches In An IMac G5 Case?

Dec 23, 2010

I'm curious if anyone has a fairly surefire method to remove scuffs and scratches from an iMac G5. I picked one up from a friend for $50 that needed new caps in the power supply (check) and was pretty roughed up cosmetically. Now I've decided to keep it as a kitchen/guest computer but would like to get rid of the scratching as much as possible.

PowerPC :: How To Get PB Case

Jan 28, 2008

I have a Powerbook G4, 15-inch, and I need a case for it. What I really want is one like this from Incase


Except that I need it to have handles. I could swear that at one time I saw a case by Incase at an Apple store that was just what I wanted but I was stupid and did not buy it and now cannot find it anywhere.

Basically I want as minimal of a case as possible - it need not store anything but the computer itself (such as power cords, etc.). Does anyone have any suggestions?

PowerPC :: Replacing Case On G5?

Dec 19, 2010

So recently I found a cheap powermac G5 on ebay and won the deal and all, but when the computer arrived it was horribly dented. It was packed with on piece of under a 1/2" Styrofoam. In the end I got a full refund for the computer and the seller just said that I could keep it if I want it. So I wanted the thing on my desk so I went ahead and bought another case for it. Now here's the question, has anyone done this or knows how to do this? I want to keep all of the internals inside for it not to become a month or so long project in my spare time. I am not sure on a tool that would let me get up into the edges. If you want to see some video of the unboxing of the case and at the end some footage of the dented one and how bad it is go here.

PowerPC :: How To Clean Aluminium Case On PB

Aug 22, 2007

What do you think (or use yourself) is the best thing to use to clean the Aluminium case of a PowerBook? I've got smudges in a few spots and I'm not entirely sure what to use.

I think I've heard people mention the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser (the dry kind), does that work? Or does it just destroy the Aluminium?

PowerPC :: Using Old G5 Case For New Computer Assembly?

Dec 24, 2008

I have an old-ass desktop PC that I wanted to upgrade (especially a gaming machine), so I was looking through a good case. However, I really LOVE the Mac Pro/ PowerMac G5 cases. The silver one with lots and lots of holes in front And then I saw some PowerMac G5's on sale at my local authorized mac reseller, for a very nice price. it got me thinking, I can buy that PM G5, take out the innings, put it to my old desk-top case to use at home (since it's dual 1.8ghz or something like that, which should be very powerful) and use that CASING of PowerMac to build my new computer. So here's my REAL question:

1. would that be a good idea?
2. Would all the components, ATX Motherboard, a nice graphic card that's big, (thinking of GTX 260 or ATI 4870) fit inside? And also, what's the built-in power supply at?

PowerPC :: Replacing Bottom Case Of IBook G3

Aug 18, 2006

I went through all the steps to change the optical drive on an old 500 MHz iBook G3, but am unable to attach the bottom case. The problem is the two long (20mm) screws near the back of the computer -- each apparently has to insert into something that looks like a gold-colored nut with serrated edges, like gears, otherwise the screws just rotate in place and don't "lock up." I'll attach a picture, but my only digital camera until I borrow one from a friend is my cell phone, so the pic won't be too good. The gold pieces fell out during the disassembly process and I can't figure out where they now go.

PowerPC :: 12" PB Monitor Case Damage?

Jul 6, 2008

Yesterday I did something stupid and accidentally flattened my powerbook while it was open. This caused the casing around the left hand side of the monitor case to separate.

The part that frames the screen itself. Do you think the whole monitor is shot or will it just be an easy and relatively simple issue to fix. The screen works fine in fact I am using it right now, I just am afraid of dirt and don't like that it looks this way.
