    This always happens with the G5's we have at school. Boot into Open Firmware mode - CMD+OPT+O+F I think is what it is. Then type in
    reset-nvram
    reset-all

    it'll reboot and there ya go.

    It is: +OPTION+O+F

    try starting up holding the SHIFT key. It will load in a 'safe mode' sort of way. Then reboot back to normal.
