A possible fix for a highly unstable G3 or G4 Tower
Authored by: obiwan2u on Sep 08, '05 12:55:14AM
Like everybody else, I'm a little unclear on exactly what "worn out" means.

I've noticed weird interactions with firewire and USB devices and my Mac G4 boot process. Remember that USB and firewire are involved with the boot sequence of the machine.

Specifically, I had a situation where my machine woudn't boot until I removed a firewire compact flash-mem card reader.

Could there be some other weird interaction like this causing your problems? It's easy to imagine changed behaviors if you're not actually conducting a controlled experiment.
