Usually when I boot up my PowerMac G4, it goes to the grey screen with the apple in the middle and a grey spinning loader under it. Now it just goes to the screen. The apple is still there, but no loader. I've tried putting new RAM in but that didnt help.. I thought that the loader would eventually come up but then I left it on that screen for a whole day and it still made no progress. My AppleCare expired over one year ago and since I am pretty good with computers, I think I may be able to fix this problem on my own... with the help of my experienced MacRumorers (if thats a word...) over here. Get a new computer you say? Not till they come out with my quad intel ANY help is highly appriciated. Oh and by the way.. As long as my beloved Mac is broken.. I HAVE TO USE WINDOWS! So PLEASE.. help! This mindless OS has just made me want to get my OS X install CDs and kiss the s*** outta them.
