    I went to turn on my iMac G5 this morning, it came up to the apple logo and the spinning cog, but then it was taking a VERY long time to boot into the OS so I just said "fair enough." and waited longer, but then the fans came on at full blast, and I became really worried, the iMac wasn't hot or anything so I decided to wait through it, but then the iMac restarted and did the same thing, like a boot loop. I've tried everything, reseting PMU and all the other things, but still no joy it keeps doing the same thing. On a side note, when I hold the power button down it makes a very loud beep noise, does this indicate RAM problems? :(

    Got it working!

    Wow thanks Hellhammer, that guide helped me get it working, turns out Leopard got corrupt, so I just popped in my leopard DVD and went to disk utility to repair disk, it was a long wait but it worked in the end.
    I almost thought the 500GB HDD that I just bought died but no, it all works fine. :D
