    G3 won't start- Bomb Icon
    My g3 blue and white 350 is having a major problem. When it starts up in 9.2.2 the bar goes about 1/4 of the way then the cursor icon spins and spins and after a minute or so- the spinning icon turns into a bomb icon.

    I tried to start the computer from my Norton disc and it does pretty much the same thing- loads 1/4 of the startup and then nothing but spinning icon.

    I tried Pram reset but to no avail.

    I also took out the extra RAM I put in years ago- but that didn't help either.


    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Hello I have the same problem with my G3 B&W, the G3 acts strange, if I change the ram it works for a little time, then again the same problem.
    Have you found the solution of this problem? Maybe a firmare update?
    I haven't found any answer in internet or on apple site.
    Thankyou very much :-)
