Hey guys, I need some help. i recently purchased a G4 desktop running os9, after booting it up the fan runs really fast and i can;t see the screen. I have tested the monitor and tried restarting in different ways. It hasn't been started up in a year - i bought it from my work as it came with pro tools for audio recording. Can someone help me get th screen up as i think i could be caught at a date and time page or something - that might be giving the fan a bit of a reason to speed up.

HELP - (I sadly am a new PC convert)
QUOTE Thanks

Cant say about the fast fan,better hope the power supply's not shot...change the pram battery, it keeps the video settings etc when the power is off.
