G5 Question (June 29, 2017 06:41AM) Tom George
Yes, I'm still using the old Mac G5 with Tiger. My mouse locked up while editing in FCP. I couldn't force quit the program and had to force quit the computer. The computer would start up again and the same problem happened and I had to force quit the computer again. Sometimes the computer would start and sometimes it would not start up.

What are the possible problems?

Thanks for the info. I have printed it out for future use as I had to take the computer in to the shop. They are running a diagnostic test on it now. They say it turns on when the side panel is off but will not turn on when the side panel is put back on. Strange situation.

check the internal battery. I had similar issues which a battery replacement solved

Thanks for the info. It was the RAM that was causing the problem.
