    Question Bad 10.3 Installation
    10.3 has been acting up, so I wanted to reinstall OSX. I found the OSX disc and was going to reinstall Panther. Well, everything was going great. It did it's initial restart, I went downstairs. I came back up and the screen was black. Computer was still on. Monitor was still on.

    I've tried 2 other monitors and still nothing. Finally I did a restart (with the little button on the tower) and I heard the chimes, the monitor light went green for about 4 seconds, then went back to amber. I've tried restarting with the disc still in, with disc 2 in, and without any discs in. I've detached my firewire CD drive and the ethernet. Nothing at all. I've even tried booting from the disc. Just blackness.

    I also tried Target Mode but that didn't work, either. Please tell me there's something I can do.

    No, I haven't tried that. I highly doubt it will allow me to. It's not letting me do anything.
