I also replaced the display cable and inverter cable. Now I'm $200 down and it still does the same thing. I'm pretty sure it's the motherboard, so I'm done with this one...

MBP 15" Screen issues

Hello all, I have a 15" Macbook Pro with a 2.0GHz Core Duo. The screen all of a sudden wouldn't turn on when it booted, but I could barely make out that it was working, but very dim. I went ahead and...

Well, not to step on anyone's nuts here, but it's really up to the consumer to make sure the memory is compatible before purchasing it. I'm not saying that the shop shouldn't take the memory back,...

Yup, I've found that certain USB keyboards actually work with the Apple commands and everything just fine. I actually used a Dell USB keyboard to successfully boot to CD, etc, and it worked just fine.

I would recommend upgrading the video card simply because that will make OSX's graphics run much smoother. With the stock ATi Rage card, it tends to jerk around a little bit, especially in Safari or...

It depends on which G4 you are talking about; some have 3 and some have 4 memory slots. As far as the maximum supported memory, a lot of times this has more to do with the chipset's memory...

If you have the G4 MDD (sounds like that's what it is from how you described it), I had the same problem with mine. You will need to get a hold of some OSX install DVDs and you should be good to go.

It looks like you have a G4 DA. I would upgrade the memory (max is 1.5GB with 3X 512MB modules) and upgrade the video card as well. The Mac Edition ATi Radeon 9800 should work in the G4 DA. Upgrading...

Eww... I hate ATi and would rather personally have a 7300GT than the ATi X1900XT. The Quadro is also quite a powerful card, but you pay for it.

The Mac Pro doesn't support SLI technology, so those 7300GTs would be working separately, meaning basically you will only get the total performance of a single 7300GT.

I may be wrong, but I think...

I hear you man. Usually Apple uses Seagate drives, I've never personally seen a WD in a newer Apple machine.

If the memory upgrade you purchased doesn't have larger heatsinks like the ones your Mac Pro originally came with, they will eventually overheat and have problems. A lot of FB-DIMM memory sold only...

The reason the 8800GTX would throw artifacts in OSX is because in order for a video card to be compatible, it must have a Mac BIOS on it. This is the reason you can't take a plain old PC video card...

You will have to download the software.

I know Ubuntu still has a PowerPC edition, and it seems to be the new Linux rave. You can request a free install CD here:

You should be able to use it in Vista/XP with Boot Camp, but when you boot OSX you will either get some serious artifacting, or no display at all.
