    My G3 B&W running 10.3.9 seems to stuck. When I turn it on it freezes at Loading window starting. This really sucks I don't know what to do. It wont start up off anything and I can't target disk because it's a G3B&W, is there any way to fix this error, if not is there a keyboard short cut at start up to erase the hard drive?

    Thanks :confused:

    When you say it won't start off anything do you mean that it will not boot of of CD either?

    do you know if this is REV A or B B&W ? Some of the REV A systems had IDE bus issues.

    If it is not booting off of CD or other devices, you may have bad memory, or something else on your motherboard / processor.

    the only disk that I have that works is an Power Book software installer CD with OS 9. It starts up but freezes before I can run Disk first aid or target disk mode from My laptop. I don't know about that other stuff Rev A/B, but I have tried almost everything that I have looked up in other forums from people with the same problem.
