Hi,

 

I am a HUGE fan of Apple. I have had amazing experiences with the company since December, 2004 when my mom unwrapped an iMac G5.

 

It is that iMac that I am talking of today. As a bit of a geek, I have had it in my room for about 1 year (after upgrading the hard drive, RAM and adding AirPort). This is a truly amazing machine, especially when used on a TV stand with a BlueTooth keyboard and mouse.

 

BUT... This morning, I noticed it had frozen. So, I decided to shut it down and reboot it. So out came the power cable and all other cables, and then I put just the power cable in and pressed start. I was greeted by the chime (which I LOVE) and then it went to the loading screen. And waited. And waited. And then, five minutes later, the fans went in to overdrive, the sreen froze, and I could have probably replaced my heater with the iMac it was blowing out so much hot air!

 

I've reset the SMU, the PRAM and the VRAM, and even tried restarting it in single user mode. Does anyone here know how to fix my iMac?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
