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
