I am new to using mac and have recently acquired a Apple G4 that has problems. When starting up i receive the blue screen and am unable to get past this screen. I have the disks however when i reboot and hold down C i get a black screen. I would like to erase the computer and start fresh. However being so new to mac i am not able to figure this out. Please help.

If you have the original install media for the G4 you should be able to hold down the Option key or the C key and boot. Once it boots from the media you can then wipe the hard drive and reinstall the operating system.
That is if everything else is working OK.
Which G4 do you have?
You might want to download a manual (PDF) for your G4 from Apple. Link
Here's another = Link
