    Dual 867 MHz PowerPC G4 1.75GB DDR SDRAM
    G4 still have a strange restart problem: desktop all funky
    Here's how my desktop normally looks:

    But when I Shut it down, every once in a while, it returns with this:

    A restart fixes it, but I was wondering if there was a permanent fix. Even when I had that old background, everything is so huge. The windows don't fit. It's like it's zoomed in a little bit.

    It looks like the display resolution got changed. I don't know of any reason why that would happen on a reboot.

    Look for corrupt preference files. You can use this app.

    Could also try OnyX. Run the maintenance scripts, delete caches, etc...
    When all else fails, try everything!
    The Rep System and you.
