Have been reading through post for about 5 hours now. My G5 2 dual. Running 0S9, no updates computer has never been connected to internet. Crashed in the middle of a session. I was using Logic Producer, and a minute after saying my mac has never crashed, my session locked up. The computer froze and after waiting I decided to turn it off manually. Then i did the following: started G5 (no pops or beeps or anything, normal start) screen reached Grey apple screen (spinning timer). And then after taking some time reached a plain blue screen. I've read everything from wipe your drive clean, to wait until something happens. Only thing that happens when i wait is my moniter goes into power saver mode. But screen stays blue. Can anyone help, maybe you know, or know a forum that can help solve.
