Destroying mac G5 power pc well it was almost seemed like destroying my old G5 power pc. Thankfully it all went back together again. Pulling the CPUs out of one’s computer seems a little excessive. The computer was playing up, not waking properly from the sleep mode in that the computer awoke but not the screen. The amount of indoor dust which accumulates around the cooling fans and circuit boards is amazing.
As I had to take both CPUs out to access the power supply unit I gave the whole things a good blast from my air compressor in the wide open out doors. Great clouds of dust came of from the chassis. Long story short I replaced the power unit with a second hand one and it all seems to work again, the way it should. So much for it not being serviceable within Australia.
