Hi all. I have been starting to have some problems with my iMac G5 (first gen) and I'm a little worried. I would like to know if anyone else has had these symptoms with theirs.
First, last week when i started up i got a black screen that said "volume has no name" and no matter what I did (after following all the troubleshooting steps in the manual) I couldnt get it to start the OS. I had to re-install Tiger
. A day earlier it had crashed twice and had to restart it by holding down the power button. It had never crashed once since i got it in December.
Second, (with a clean Tiger install) yesterday when i had it awake from sleep i couldnt connect to the internet so I did a restart (which solved the problem this time) but the sleep light stayed on for about 20-30 seconds before it started up. Now everytime i start up or restart it does this. It has only taken a few seconds for start up before.
I did some maintenance and ran the "hardware test" disc and it found no problems. I havent installed any funky software that would do cause this. Frustrating!
I know there have been some problems with the first generation iMac G5's and was wondering if anyone else has had these specific problems.
Thanks for any help!
