Re: mac cube duel 500 conversion

The Nvidia GForce MX3 was considered the fastest stock card that shipped with the Cube. The Cube has a AGP 2x slot, so it should take any stock 2X and 4X AGP card without modification to the slot or the card pins. Cubeowner dot com was the definitive source for all information concerning the Cube an...

Re: DIY Advice to repair an M001

Make sure you get the screws down inside the handle. To open the case you would or perhaps only should use a case cracker. A search of the internet should turn up an assortment of differing tools that have been used to get into the cases of the classis Macs. Might even turn up up ideas digging throu...

Re: Challenging problem to solve: anyone?

It is not clear to me what you are running the shell from if the computer is not booting from the hard drive. If you are running from installer media it would be most common to run the DiskUtility application to effect repairs and/or erase/reformt the hard drive for reuse. If you are trying to effec...

Re: What is going on with this Mac?

If you are trying to boot a Powerbook G4 1.5GHz from a hard drive that has Panther installed it will not work, for the OS to old for the hardware. You would need to check on line to see what system the Powerbook requires. It will run Mac OS X 10.5, which is probably your best bet. Macs can be very f...

Re: Which software you use to monitor CPU temperature?

System monitoring software always strikes me as a waste of time. Macs monitor their own temperature. They turn on the fan as needed, they shut down if heat becomes excessive. I think you only need to monitor something if you can favorably control it. I have no ability to control the temperature of t...

Re: Kernel panic at boot, safe boot works fine

A couple of the panics seem related to this from your log: "Error getting a reference to IODeviceTree:/options" The IODeviceTree begins as part of open firmware. You can access it by holding down command-option-o-f during boot. The following commands issued from the Firmware prompt will re...

Re: "compare document" in NeoOffice (in Edit menu)

The new project is LibreOffice. Many Linux distros have embraced LibreOffice, but currently LibreOffice is miss...

Re: iMac G5 crashed after using track changes on Word for Mac

My wife's iMac G5 died from capacitor problems a year ago. My wife was content with her iMac G5 and had no lust for a new(er) computer so we did get it fixed. The repair was not inexpensive, but it was much less than the cost of a new machine. You just need to look at all the variables and make a de...

Re: iMac G5 crashed after using track changes on Word for Mac

If the G5 iMac is making no noise of any sort and the screen remains black without so much as a flicker then you no doubt have hardware problems and probably serious problems. The G5 iMac suffered from capacitor failure. If you do a search on G5 iMac and capacitors you will find a good deal of infor...

Re: iMac G5 crashed after using track changes on Word for Mac

Detailed symptoms would make it easier to provide helpful suggestions. Is the iMac acting like it is not even plugged in when you try to start it? Do you get a chime or any other signs of life, like a fan or drive spinning up? Does it get to displaying an image and if so what is displayed? The iMac ...

Re: problems with reinstalling operating system on powermac 3g

Since plugging in the drive bring up a white screen, I assume the controller on the logic board is bad. That also explains the reason for the controller card installed inside the machine. Perhaps you can connect both drives to PCI the controller board. If not perhaps you can connect the hard drive t...

Re: Where to look: upgrade 2.0GHz G5 to 2.7GHz liquid cooled G5?

It was my understanding that the liquid cooling system was overall pretty reliable. However it was easily damaged when worked on by the untrained and unskilled. And of course the big problem is that any damage that results in coolant leakage invariably ruins the entire machine. Even with the cooling...
