Resetting PRAM keystrokes?

Message #1 - Posted 2005/12/14 - Joe

I can't remember how to do this.

My iMac won't recognize anything, and since yesterday, not even Norton Utilities startup disk?

I have Panther Systen installation disks and it won't recognize them either.

Any thought? Should I reset the PRAM - is there anything else that comes to mind?

Thanks
Joe

Switch of the Mac, press
Command Option P R
and while pressing these keys simoultanously switch the Mac on, keep on pressing until you have heard the startup sound three times.

Dirty DVD-drive? Broken DVD-drive?
