Hello everyone,
I have a 2007 iMac G5 24" desktop computer. The computer developed a problem in which a message appears saying "you must restart your computer." I did some research and found out this was called a kernel panic. Took it to the apple store 3 times and it was never fixed. I ended up purchasing a new computer, and this has been in the closet for about 2 years now. The computer is now out of the time frame that apple will fix it (5+ years old).

The computer will not boot up. I have tried to start it in safe mode, but the message still appears. I've tried placing the original OS disc for the system repair, but it comes up clean. I am not good with working on computers, so repairing it myself is pretty much not an option.

Should I sell this computer broken, on a site like craigslist? I put it up and have gotten numerous inquiries about it. I also got an offer for $200. This makes me think people know a way to fix it and they are willing to buy it off of me for cheap and make a good profit from fixing it. What exactly do you all think this would be worth broken? Or is it worth trying to get it fixed somewhere and selling it for a higher price if fixed? I would like to mention that when I bought this computer new it was about $2300.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
