Hi I am a brand mew member of this forum so please be gentle with me!

I have just bought and PowerMac G4 dual 867 mirror drive doors, started it once, went to start it again after changing the admin password a new one.
Now it just doesn't start.

I not getting any error messages, like boot drive can't be found or anything else just a blank screen with my cursor which I can move around, but that about it.

Any suggestions?

Cheers

Yay got it sorted, found a thread about resetting passwords and just followed that.

Used a ext. firewire DVD drive, with a install disc in, held "c" on start up took a couple of goes but got there in the end.
