Strongly recommend that you update to OS 10.4.11. Your system info confirms you are still using the basic Tiger OS.G5 20' iMac w/iSight/Remote, 2.5GB RAM, 250GB HD, Mac OS X (10.4.11), The G5 iMac brought sexy back! "I'M A FLIRT"

I am pretty sure my problem is the logic board.iMac G5 (Ambient Light Sensor), Mac OS X (10.4)
