    Hi,

    Please help. This the first issue i've had in years.

    I was using Onyx to repair permissions, clean some caches, verify the start up and S.M.A.R.T status

    all checked out fine.

    Did a restart, and it got stuck.

    So, I held down the power button and shut it off.

    Restarted, and now it's stuck on the white apple logo screen. It stays like that and then the fans freak out.

    I did the PRAM thing

    and I try to hold down shift for safe mode
    nothin

    try to hold down :apple: + S for single user mode
    nothin

    Can't get the disc tray to open, so I can't reboot with the install disc.

    I also unplugged all my peripherals

    sigh

    wtf

    still stuck on the white apple logo screen. This is a PowerMac G5 dual 1.8.

    running the latest OS

    the PRAM command worked, so it is recognizing key commands. So not sure why I can't get single user mode to work.

    and this machine has been fine recently. this is out of the blue.

    please help

    thanks
    :eek:
