I hope somebody can help me.

Yesterday I powered on my G5 and it loaded up normally but the mouse was not responding, the red light was on indicating it was plugged in. Regardless I unplugged the mouse and replugged it back in but still nothing. So I held down the power button to shutdown my computer. When I next powered it back on after checking the connections for my keyboard and mouse, the G5 Powers on, but does not boot up. I get nothing at all on the apple display, apart from the power light which stays on but flashes brighter 3 times (same on the unit) and will do this constantly until I hold down the power button to shut it down.

Any ideas?

I have a lot of photos and files I haven't got round to backing up yet and would love to be able to get them backed up on my portable HD
