iMac doesn't turn on-Help?

- Dec 12, 2007
Last week, my iMac (bought it in late '07, running Leopard) stopped working. It slowed down to a crawl, so I restarted it, but when it started up again, it couldn't get past the Apple logo and the loading circle.
When I turn it on, it loads for about a minute and then shuts down again. I've tried various tips I've found online, but nothing has worked so far.
The one thing I haven't tried yet is booting it up from the install disc, and that's because my disc drive stopped working a few months ago and I haven't replaced it.

Sounds like a bad hard drive. If you had a working DVD drive you could check for sure of course.
Here's an external drive for $55...then you wouldn't have to go thru the hassle of replacing an internal drive.
