You all might remember awhile back that I had the problem with my G4 MDD where it was taking 8 minutes to boot up. One member asked me to post when I had fixed the problem to help others out with the same issue...so here goes: Well, the boot problem turned out to be a bad SATA drive. But, as I was working on fixing that, the power supply conked out! (probably all those quick reboots with an old supply). So it looked like that was the end. I was very close to junking the machine and buying a Mac Mini....BUT, I found a dealer on line who had a new, in box MDD Power Supply and fan. These were brand new...never even plugged in!! Very cheap, too. I figured I couldnt lose. So, I took a day off from work and did G4 MDD surgery. I replaced the Power Supply, the big fan, also the speaker (mine was distorted), and installed a 160 gig IDE Drive I had. This got the machine back into service, then I flushed out the PRAM, formatted the drive and installed a fresh version of OSX 10.5.3 . Then I did Software Update, and installed a newer version of Quicktime. The end result is that the machine is like new. It boots up in 65 seconds, consistantly. Since I still have the Sonnet SATA card in the machine, I plan to add Two SATA drives for storage. I may even upgrade the Dual 1 Gig processor to Dual 1.25, I like the machine that much! It felt good to get this old beast back into action. Works great, as well.
