FIRST OFF UNPLUG THE SYSTEM AND GET IT UP ON A TABLE WHERE YOU CAN LOOK INSIDE IT.
1. Touch some part of the METAL INSIDE CASE during the entire time you look inside as to not discharge any static electricity on the machine.
2. Check all cable connects to make sure that they are all connected. While at the same time looking for any electrical burn-up marks and/or smells.
3. If your computer has only ONE RAM MODULE look it over extensively. Remove it and reinstall it/or all your RAM.
4. After the check through....shut the case, plug it back up, and see if works now.
MAYBE IT IS JUST THE POWER SWITH
MAYBE IF YOU CAN JUST GET IT TO POWER UP LONG ENOUGH FOR TO INSERT THE INSTALL CD YOU CAN GET IT TO RUN OFF THAT.
IF IT WON'T WORK AT ALL, THEN:
a.) Pray that if indeed it did get SHOCKED, that only the RAM took the shock.
b.) If you have insurance, then it is DUAL G5 time.
c.) You're F**KED.
