Hi there,
I have been having problems with my G5 when starting it up it will not display any video. I hear the start up sound, but the monitors do not turn on. This has been going on for the past few months, it usually takes 3 tries before the monitors will kick in. But most recntly it took over 10 - i finally disconnected all the external drives and when starting up he monitors came on. I have tried resetting my video ram. Do you think i need to get a new video card?
