Alright, here are the symptoms and what I have attempted to do.

Start Power Mac G5, LED lights up on the front of machine, black screen, no chime, ... then 2 minutes later the fans start spinning (sounds like a airplane).

What I have tried :
- does not boot in Safe Mode
- PRAM reset does not work
- disconnected optical & hard drive, still does not work
- tried target mode, still does not work
- cleaned the entire computer, still does not work

It was working perfectly fine until I moved the computer.
Power Mac G5 (Late 2005), Mac OS X (10.4.11)
