    My G5 was fine till kernal panics.
    So I did a clean install
    Then my tiger wouldn't load.
    I tried and tried, did system checks etc. No more kernal panics but now I cannot use my printer and any websites that use shockwave or download.
    My kids cannot do their homework, it's maddening.

    I am going to try and replace the os system. Some say leopard runs slow on a g5. any suggestions?

    Do all the system updates.

    Shockwave -> flash
    Printer: google "printer model driver"

    Describe "won't load".

    Believe me I have. The software updates just has things like iphoto. I cannot even look at text edit or itunes.
    They'll start bouncing then stop
