Will not turn on
1. check to make sure all it plugged in tightly (it happens), and that surge bar is on (that happens too).
2. Hold shift key down when booting for safe boot, the go to disc utilities to repair permissions. 3. Boot from Disc Warrior or Tech Tool Pro and see if that works. Run tests from these discs. 4. Reinstall OS 5. Swear a lot and send it in to be fixed.

The RAM needs to be installed in matched pairs in a G5. There ar 2 banks of RAM slots. Ram should be installed from the centre outwards. (i.e bottom slot of the upper bank and top slot of the lower bank). Then move on to the next pair.

Is the hard drive SATA or IDE. On IDE, I know you can use delpart. Locate a SATA tool to wipe the partition of SATA drives. Install LEOPARD as usual then after rebooting.

Trying booting from the Mac OS X install disc.
insert the Mac OS X install disc.
press the start button while holding down the "C" key on the keyboard
If it boots normally from the disc. you have a bad hard drive and it will need to be replaced.
