Title:

Light Blue Screen of Death

Text:

I have an A1058 iMac G5. It powers on, recognizes a keyboard and mouse, but after the Apple logo with a spinning circle, it ”boots” to a light blue screen. 33% of the time, I get a mouse cursor.

I checked the inside. There are no bulging capacitors.

I think it might be a problem with the OS, but it’s hard to navigate it when all I can see is a light blue screen.

Should I try putting the hard drive in a different machine, seeing if it’s readable, and if so,  reinstalling the OS? I don’t know which one.

Any help is appreciated!

Device:

iMac G5 17" Model A1058
