My Powermac G5 suddenly stopped working and won't turn on. The fan comes on but I don't here the opening turning on 'chords'. The fans then just get louder and louder. I did a quick search and it said try unplugging the power supply for fifteen seconds but that didn't work.


The good news is I bought a mac mini a few months ago and transferred all of my data over so no issue there. My main concern is, I would like to clear my personal information from y powermac so I can get rid of it or just use it as a back-up drive.

Mac OS X (10.5.7), 512 MB DDRAM
