    I have a powermac G3 (beige) and it will not boot up. The screen is gray and the mac computer is happy. But after a minute the screen goes black and a bunch of junk is displayed on the screen. At the bottom of the screen it says memory access exception (1,0,0). Its says press c to continue and r to reboot. I press C and the screen says some more stuff and it says press c to continue or r to reboot I press c again and it says system halting here and locks up.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Re: boot up problems

    When you reboot and hold C ... your telling your computer to boot from CD ... if you have no CD then it will lock up ...

    are you running OS 10 or 9?

    eitherway ... start from the CD, and then run disk utility and repair disk

    Could be an extension problem .... did you install anything recently?

    I believe it has OS 9.

    I do not have a cd to start from. Where can I get one?

    Thanks

    It sounds like you're running X - 10.1.x, actually. You're having a kernel panic, which usually has to do with bad RAM.

    Take out all non-factory installed RAM and reboot.
