Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Only apple display on the screen. - PC Desktops


Answers :

Assuming you're running Tiger or Lepard, this will tell you what's wrong. If it's an older OS/hardware config, I won't be able to help much.

Boot into manual drive selection. I think the command is holding the apple key and C key while powering on. Check with your resaler, as they probably have a Mac Tech that works there and will know the command for sure.

If this doesn't work, you're logic board has gone bad. If it does work, but doesn't show your HDD but does show the optical drive, then your HDD has gone bad. If it doesn't show the optical drive either, your IDE controller has gone bad. If it does show your HDD, then your software is corrupt, and will need to be reinstalled.
