    Unhappy White screen of death
    My G4 tower decided to suddenly shut down and now I can't wake it back up. It makes the Wall-E start-up tone, then goes to a white screen. I tried safe mode and nothing happened there. There is a sound coming from the tower that almost sounds like a record skipping.

    We don't have the OS disk since my brother in-law normally works on the computer and unfortunately, he is dealing with a death in the family right now.

    I would be really happy if your replies do not include the words "new hard drive" or "lost data".

    Any help?

    Oh, and we are running 10.4 I think.

    Hi, well without discs your best option is to try FSCK to check the file system, and also you can reset pram and nvram, to see if that helps.
    I would say that the skipping record sound is usually the HD playing up, but you may be lucky here.
    If you need to know how to use the commands mentioned, read my post in this thread:
