Question: Powermac G5 won't startup loud fans
Hi, I wonder if anyone could help me with my problem: I have a late model powermac G5 that will not boot up, after powering on there is no chime, the screen remains black then after several minutes the fans come on very loud. This seems to be a common issue and I have tried various fixes such as: resetting the smu, replacing the video card and replacing the lithium battery - nothing has worked.
I am now planning on buying a new Mac, perhaps an iMac, when I can afford it. My question really is thus: i use my Mac for writing songs on GarageBand, I have songs stored on the main hard drive of the G5 and on an additional internal hard drive in the G5, is there a way I can salvage these files by buying a new Mac? Is there a way to hook up an old PowerPC hard drive onto a new Mac to retrieve the data? Or is there some other way I could do this?
thank you for reading
