@tony - if the light is on solid, that is usually a logic board issue, but I would try resetting the pram first. Best way is to unplug the machine, remove the battery, and hold down the power button for 10 seconds, then plug it in and try to turn it on.

@ed - that is usually an issue with a corrupt hard drive. you can boot up with your OS disk and go into disk utility and repair disk permissions.

@Mick - the 12-inch machine does not have a separate PRAM. It is built into the main battery.

Very informative videos, I found but am unable to get back to the breakdown picture with information links displaying the part name. Is there a memory retention battery in the g4 aluminum?

That seems to have done it. Thanks so much for being available. Cheers
