    Angry G4 Keyboard not getting enough power
    I've many problem with my 6 month old PowerMac G4.

    First my processor broke after two months, now my keyboard will not work.

    I get a message from the computer saying there "isn't enough power from the usb device."

    Can someone help me with this. I would really appreciate it.

    Are you using the stock keyboard or an after-market keyboard?

    if you use the original keyboard and plug it directly into your computer it should work. theres not much more you can do

    there must be a short or some thing inside the keyboard, you should send it to be checked out.

    Thanks for the replies.

    The Keyboard was plugged directly into the computer. I went to the Apple store and spoke with the genius, and he said the keyboard is probably failing. Going to have it tested today.
