I have a power mac G5 (Power PC) I havent used the computer in years and I started it up one day and no problems.

A few days after running the computer it wouldnt boot up its OS. Below is a link of the grey screen. After the wheel spins for about 45 seconds and then the wheel turns to a low resolution pink box. After this spins for a few seconds the computer stays on and the display turns black.


Im able to boot up in safe mode.
