You will need to acquire and install a new power supply. I would suggest having a professional do it, being the iMacs are difficult to work on and not for the novice.

SOURCE: Apple mac G5 freezes when booting up.

Try unplugging all Firewire/USB devices. Also, unplug the power cord from the computer. This resets the logic board. If that doesn't isolate the problem, put your Original system CD that came with the computer and hold down the C key. Boot up and run Disk Utility. Run the repair disk and then repair disk permissions. Reboot and try booting your system again.

If it boots normally from the disc. you have a bad hard drive and it will need to be replaced.

I have an iMac G5, system 10.4, that gives me a white screen with the apple logo and lots of fan noise when I try to boot up. What's going on?


It is having difficulty with the system folder, try starting with the left hand shift key held down, if not boot from CD, select language as if you are going to do an install, on the next screen the top menu has a utilities folder, in this select disc utlility, select your hard drive and then select repair, let this work and if OK or repaired (if it says it cannot repair then you need a repair utlity like DiskWarrior) then repair permissions, this can take a while with a big HD, then in utilities select start up disk and select your HD and restart.
