Hi. I have a 3 yr old imac G4. All of a sudden, last night when I clicked restart, it goes to the gray screen with the apple on it, and just spins that gray circle for hours and will not go to the login screen. If I try to turn it off in the back, it will not. If I try to open the cd drive to put in a recovery disk, it will not open. If I try a safe boot by unplugging it then turning it back on holding the shift key, it will not do it. I do not know what to do. ANY help will be appreciated...my applecare just ran out last month. Am I doomed?? I checked FAQ's first, but could not find the solution. Thank you in advanced for any help. Respectfully, Frank D.
