Hi there,

My Mac Pro G5 has gone a bit crazy. I powered it off one night only to come back in the morning to power it back on and find it wouldn't power on! All it does is click and the light goes on and off, click and light goes on and off etc. I reset the SMU and even reseated the graphics card and RAM. No motherboard lights come on to signify any problems there. I even changed power cables and that didnt make a difference. Its out of warranty

Has anyone else had a similar problem?
QUOTE Thanks

That sounds like a serious internal problem. I think you should bring your mac pro to a apple retail store.

G4 1.33 GHz, 1.5 GB RAM, 60 GB Hard Disk, Slot-load SuperDrive (DVD-R/CD-RW). Mac OS X 10.5.6
G3 400 MHz, 512 MB RAM, 120 GB Hard Drive, Combo Drive (CD-RW/DVD-ROM), Mac OS X 10.4.10

Lets start at the beginning, is it a Power Mac G5 or a Mac Pro?
