    Hallo all:
    Am new to this G5 power Tower Quad

    all was working well enough - went to reinstall OS Tiger as the system is not personalized

    put in the Install disc one - username / password : Administrator - I typed in admin - - asked to restart - yes - powered off fine
    then red light on tower flashed - no display - nothing

    restarted manually - still no display power but dvd and fans going

    anyone know what gives ?

    cheers on advance

    QUAD? As in not the g5 thats in your sig?

    If it is a quad, I would be checking for coolant leaks immediately.

    Hallo zmttoxics:

    New to Power Tower- bought 2 weeks ago and just got the 23" display - so have not been able to do anything but test display till just now

    will put the Quad Power Tower on my CP - thanks for reminder

    and good I sought Power Tower with AppleCare valid till mid December

    no leaks - just goofy as soon as went to reinstall software it went cock up
    reset SMU and now is doing reinstall - after erasing existing

    see how it goes form here
    cheers ja for the reply
