    Hello,

    I have a G5 iMac and it wont boot up or rather it gets to the loading screen and stops when it goes blue. I have a CD stuck in the drive that wont eject so I can't load off the operating CD to find out what's the matter.

    Any suggestions on getting the CD out? Don't want to take a trip to the Apple store..

    Thanks ahead of time!

    To get the disc out, hold down the mouse button while it is starting up, it will force it out. Sounds like a permission problem with Finder. Worse case, a simple reinstall (not an archive and install) should fix whatever is corrupted in Finder.
