    Unhappy No Chime, Black Screen, No Nothing! Argh!
    Hey gang;
    I recently bought a Power Mac G5, early 2004 edition, from a third party. It worked fabulous. I then did a complete disk erase-reboot, and upgraded to Leopard 10.5.8. I then installed CS4 (illustrator, photoshop, inDesign), and Final Cut Pro 6.0.4. It worked flawlessly for about 2 weeks when all of a sudden, when I turned it on yesterday, nothing happened. Black screen.

    I noticed that my start up Chime didn't ring as usual and my screen always stayed black. Also, after about a minute after turning it on, my inner fans stated rotating really fast; faster than normal, and it sounds extremely loud as they turn. After this, nothing happens, the fans just keeping turning and turning at fast speeds.

    Any thoughts? Suggestions?

    The fans of doom! Sad to say it's most likely the logic board.
