    so this iMac started shutting down randomly about a month ago, now it wont start up at all. it makes a weird zapping sound around the Apple logo when I hit the power button. What could cause this? HD failure?

    iMac 17 in. (emc 2055)

    yo check it. part # 661-3290 is out of stock everywhere although THIS PAGE says it's cool to use any of these: 661-3627 614-0333, 614-0276, 614-0293, API3PC95, 614-0329 or a DPS-180QB A
    Is that true?

    I'd call an Apple store to verify the compatibility. Looks like it might depend on the vintage of your G5 iMac.
