I hope someone might have an idea that I might be able to try. We are having this on going problem, that whenever 1 of our 2 g5's freeze up and we have to do a hard reboot from the cpu power button both of the g5's just restart up to the blue screen with the spotlight icon in the uppr right corner. After that it will just stay like that, and not finish coming up the rest of the way. I tried zapping pram, repairing permissions, repairing hard disk. The only way we can get either g5 back up is reload tiger, and create a new system folder. But with having to reload cs2, and a couple of other programs this gets a bit old after a while.
