Question about Computers & Internet
Sounds like an overheating issue, probably not related to the new hard drive, but possible damage or debris done during installation

External drives (hard drive, DVD burner, iPod, USB drive), printer, a worn out mouse button, debris in/on the keyboard, and cats are all things that can cause your computer to refuse to sleep (or wake it shortly thereafter). Rule out these first. I have had the same problem in the past. It is almost always one of these that causes the problem.

SOURCE: ? imac g4 ? problem starting
This looks to be a hard drive issue....if you are familiar with the machine enough to take off the bottom plate.....requires a torx tool. I would take off the bottom plate and disconnect the hd, and then see if the machine will boot to cd...if it will then boot to cd then it is a hard drive... i would be careful though as there is a pad on the processor that cools it and if it becomes dislodged you can overheat the processor....

All you need to do is a System Repair. You have to boot the Mac with the CD/DVD (as if you were to install the OS X again, but when you get the desktop, you are given options to repair your current installation. (Follow the instructions on screen). It will take about 20 minutes to complete (depending on your processor speed).

when booting immediately after the first chime before the grey screen hold down keys (apple,option,p,r) allow the computer to restart if it still goes to that blank screen restart again and this time hold down only the (option) key or maybe (option,s) on that model try option key first then select the main start up disk from the menu and click the arrow underneath
