Power Mac G5 Processor Problems
I've got a Power Mac G5 Dual 2.0ghz though I'm having some problems with one of the processors. It seems that about 85% of the times I boot the computer Hardware Monitor and About this Mac only shows one processor. There's still a few occasions that when I turn it on both processors are running and operational but most of the time only one is detected. Is this a sign of a bad processor or bad motherboard? Or is it a hardware problem? I've tried reseating the processor about 4 or 5 times now without any difference. The second processor just seems to kick on whenever it feels like it, really.
Any help would be appreciated.

The procs may just need to be reseated. I rebuilt a G5 that was reported to be not booting and completely tore it down, rebuilt it and reseated the processors and good as new.
Is it a LCS (Liquid Cooled/Cooling System) G5 model? If so, sometimes that can leak and cause all sorts of chaos, too unfortunately.
