    Please try and offer some type of suggestion....:(



    i got a second Apple Cinema display the other day. The white, plastic kind.

    so, now i have two. yay!

    except when i plugged in the new/ second display into my powermac G5, it immediatley put the cpu to sleep...hmmm

    woke it up, and the display was working fine.

    except the USB ports didn't work anymore...:eek:

    i needed the USB ports though for my mouse and keyboard. so, i plug my original apple cinema display in again, works great

    except ....the USB ports on that display are now not working either!!!!!:eek:


    ARRRGHHH

    WTF

    So, this free new display either..

    - blew out the usb ports on TWO displays, which makes no sense.

    - plugging in the second display changed a setting in the Mac that allows the USB ports on the display to work....

    no clue

    i've restarted
    unpluged and replugged both displays
    click 'detect display'

    no effect

    Please try and offer me a suggestion on this!

    otherwise I guess it's off to the shop to get a USB hub (the usb ports on my Powermac still work fine)

    HELP
    :eek::confused::(:eek:
