    Hey there, as the title of the thread states my G5 is being moody.

    More accurately though it's my fault, I deleted a large group of files and the computer simply would not respond to anything I clicked on so I switched it off by holding down the power switch.

    That's when things started to really get bad, instead of starting up like usual it entered a screen with various text including "Unable to find driver for this platform" and "No debugger configured - dumping debug information" along with a "You need to restart, hold down the power button or press the restart button to do so" also, after a couple of minutes the fan goes into overtime and the computer starts making a sound similar to an airplane taking off.

    I know I did something stupid but if anyone could give me any pointers to get it working normally again I'd be grateful.

    Re-install the OS...you apparently deleted some files it needs to run. Note to others: Don't do that. ;)

    Thanks, I figured that's what it would need. Sorry for the trouble anyway, my bad ^^;.
