i was wondering if i have to have a keyboard hooked up to my iMac for it to power on because when i press the power button i hear the monitor turn on but the light is orange the whole time. btw the iMac is an origional bondi blue but has been upgraded to OS X Panther and has 195mb of ram. i just need to know if i need a compadable mac keyboard or is there something actually wrong with my iMac P.S. the tray loading cd rom doesnt open when i press the power button and the light is orange, i dunno if that helps. as you can see i am new at macs P.P.S i just realized that i posted in the wrong section, and im sry ok here it goes..... got and origional Bondi Blue iMac, there have been some upgrades, ram is now up to 195mb and has OS X Panther installed but here is my problem or perhaps a simple solution. i havent used macs for about 7 years so i dont know anything about them anymore and i just got this one today, no keyboard or mouse just the system, and when i power on rather then a green light its just orange, i hear the monitor and the fan turn on but nothing pop up on the screen. so here is my question to you, do i need to buy a keyboard and mouse to get this mac to actually start up or do i have a bigger problem on my hands then what i was expecting?
