How to fix a G5 that freezes on boot?
I have a Power Mac G5, made in June 2003 or 2004. The model is a dual 1.8 Ghz processor. The PCI devices are PCI-X.
After experiencing some freezing after 30 minutes of use, I decided to reseat the processor. However, it didn't work and now I get to the Apple logo and that's it. I did do my homework by searching everywhere for any possible solutions, even the Apple Support Forums, which provided little help. I also tried the following before reseating the processor:
1) Ran disk utility and no problems were reported.
2) Reset the PMU. No effect.
3) Checked for improperly seated ram. Confirmed seated properly.
4) Checked all connections.
5) Checked for a bad video card. Confirmed working.
Is there any possible solution to my problem? I tried everything and nothing helped. My G5 still boots, but it freezes on boot. I don't have a AHT cd because it didn't came with one. I also didn't bother using it because a look around showed people tried it and it was little help. If you need more details, don't hesitate to ask. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Is this a good question?
