    Today I restarted my iMac G4 800 MHz... only to have it start back up and stay stuck on the grey screen with the grey apple logo. I let it sit for 30 mins... nothing changed...

    How do I fix this? I reciently installed iLife 05 on it.. I think it's running 10.3.5.

    Thank you!

    same problem

    I am running a 1Ghz machine and it did the same thing this week. Started up with the (annoyingly loud) chime, then made a clunk-clunk-clunk sound for a while, then the ? mac thing came on the screen. Tried re-booting several times, same thing, took the cd out, put my tiger cd in, took it out again, re-booted another half dozen times, then it started just like nothing had been wrong at all.

    I was planning to open th ebottom panel and see if my extra memory or airport card were loose, but in the end it fixed itself.

    equally baffled.

    Someone has to say it!

    It's because apple is going to Intel! :p ;) Restart!
