I put my g5 to sleep. After a couple of minutes the fans came on real loud. I shut it down and turned it back on. It booted up then, but I put it asleep again and it wouldn’t wake up. I rebooted it an it comes on an just sits there. This all it will do now.

I don’t know what to do. The keyboard is off my old g4. It won’t any commands. I tried to open the optical drive but it won’t accept any commands from the keyboard.

Thanks mark m

Some progress. I swapped 3.6 batteries. I got it to chime and PR. It booted up. I put a bootable dvd drive genius in the optical. I rebooted, no chime, I could hear the voicing coil searching a few times, then it spun up and stopped. It just sits there with the power on doing nothing.

I think it would boot if I could get the dvd out of the optical. I normally don’t shut this thing off, I just let it sleep on the ups.
