    My G4 Won't Power Up
    I've got a 933Mhz G4 with a 15" Apple display.

    We had a power outage last week. A few days later I went to do some work on the computer and I can't start it up.

    The power light on the monitor will come on and stay on, but the computer won't start up.

    When I press the power button on the cpu, the light behind the button comes on, but goes off as soon as remove my finger from the button. Because of the lights working, I assume that I don't have a power issue, but I don't know what to do next. I also tried taking the battery out, and putting it back in.....and trying to start up while doing the PRAM thing. But nothing has worked for me yet.

    Any ideas?

    I am guessing that it's a possible fried power supply. If you had an outage, it might have done some damage.
