    I have a 2004 G5 tower. The liquid cooling system leaked and now the computer will not boot. It powers on, fans run, power LED lights up, but no display.

    I swapped the video card, no luck, pulled the sticks of RAM, no luck.

    What are the odds that replacing the processors would fix the problem? I've remove the cooling system and processors already.

    Give Apple a call. There have been a number of people who have gotten these fixed for free out of warranty since it was a major design flaw. Make sure you enforce the fact that it is a potential fire/heath hazard to have liquid leaking into the power supply etc.

    Well, I already took out the cooling system and processors. Would they service it in pieces?
