I have had a G5 iMac  for several years. It has OS10.5 installed and I had two exgrnal hard drives attached.  Recently it began to slow down quite a lot and I have been trying to clean it up and get rid of files that weren't required.


Yesterday when I tried to start it up  the spinning circle  with the Apple logo in the background was replaced by a no entry sign.


In order to try and do a safe restart I have held down shift. I have held down C and I have even tried  shift and C, but nothing is happening. 

I can not lay my hand on the discs that would have come with the iMac.


Is there any other suggestions that anyone cam make whoch would help me restore it to its brilliant former self
