Hi, I have a dual 1.8 Powermac G5. The thing has been freezing a lot, ever since i bought it. Hard freeze, no spinning pinwheel. After taking it in several times I have been told every excuse: it was my monitors, memory, faulty harddrive...yet replacing all of these has not fixed my problem at all.
Recently the grey-ed out "must power down now" screen has been popping up from time to time. The MAJOR problem is that after the last time I did this, now my g5 won't turn back on at all. I've unplugged the power cord, external devices....but now when i turn it on, it won't go past the black screen (I don't even get the grey apple loading screen). It just stays on black and if I leave it on the fans start running. Hitting eject will not open the cd/dvd drive, so I cannot boot up off a disk.
Any suggestions!? Even if this thing needs to be serviced i have a Final Cut Pro project file that I really need off this thing. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
