    I've had my G5 for about 4 months now and its been pretty good considering its old as dirt. But I keep having issues with safari, anytime i have 4 or more tabs open, it wants to freeze and crash.

    any suggestions to keep my G5 running smooth and stop from crashing?

    i have tried running other browsers, tried stainless and it was no better. Stainless actually ran slower.

    But now I have a much worse problem. My G5 wont even turn on, it gets to the white screen with the apple logo and powers off. How can i fix this?

    No flashing powerlight or anything? Soon as you press the power button, try getting into single user mode...

    Immediately press and hold, Command s screen should go black and the fans slowly start to rev up so it doesn't overheat.

    Try booting from the OS X disc while holding c at startup.
