    Freezing when waking up & strange noise
    Hi everyone

    I'm having a few problems with my Imac G5, started about a week ago, my girlfriend did the mac software update, and i think it updated the sleep light or something. Then the mac worked ok all the time it was in use, but when i wake it up from a sleep the whole thing locks up, then the fans go mad.
    Now the problems have got worse, it intermittently boots, sometimes i get a grey screen then the little folder with the flashing question mark, i'm also getting a loud static crackling noise when I turn it on that can last a few seconds or a few minutes till the fans come back on.
    I've zapped the pram, and reset the firmware but it hasn't helped.

    Anyone got any ideas??

    Sorry about the long post!
