    I have an old Imac G5 which is hanging randomly and have some time to fix, so going to give it a try. I have tried to repair the caps before because the video went wonky. I subsequently replaced the motherboard. When it hangs now, the fans go on high setting. The only way to shut it down is to press and hold the power button.

    I checked the board, caps are fine and did the various memory resets holding down the ctrl keys etc. But this has not helped. Another thing I did was I tried to install the OS on a new hard drive, but it got hung up in the install process also, so thinking its some hardware that is the issue.

    Any suggestions would be helpful.

    Tried reseating the memory and seems to be ok now.
