In October, I was lucky enough to be asked to "dispose" of a PowerMac G4 Cube. It was complete but very dirty having being left in an outdoor shed for 11 years! I brought it home and gave it a clean, connected it, crossed my fingers and plugged it in. The fuse immediately blew in the plug and from researching the problem, it looked like the psu had died. As I couldn't get into the PSU and was quoted a lot of money to fix it, I bought an LED power supply rated at 28V, 250W and tried that. This time the computer booted up and ran. It worked fine for a few days except that there was a CD stuck in
G'day, After many years admiring, I finally bought a PowerMac G4 Cube a few years ago off eBay. Not a perfect specimen, but came with a 1.5Ghz Sonnet upgrade card, maxed RAM, decent hard drive... Unfortunately one thing I didn't realise at the time, was that it is missing the black 2pin cable that supplies power from the logicboard to the video card riser (shown in pic), to power the ADC port.

It had no issues for several days after this. Then randomly, one day, a window popped up on the screen that said "this computer lacks the proper software to go to sleep" and the machine crashed on me. I went into energy settings after this and changed the sl
Hi. I bought a G4 Cube from the bay a while ago, and it currently has some issues maybe you guys can help me with. The Cube is pretty much a stock one, and all it does is: It powers on and shows the apple boot logo / plays the bong and even starts to load the OS. All ok up to here right? Thing is, as soon as I plug or unplug something on the (only working) USB port, it restarts. The other USB port is damaged (!!!!). If I turn it on with something already plugged in, it works, but it seems that the USB port hasn't got enough power to deal with a HUB, a keyboard and a mouse, so I
