    My dual 1.8 G5 froze while working on a file.
    Shut it down.
    Now when I start it up, I hear it begin to boot (I can hear the hard
    drive begin to read), then nothing. No ring and the monitor stays
    After a few minutes, the fans begin to blow very hard.

    It won't boot from the CD. (But I guess if it's the video card, I
    can't see it booting).

    Any tips?

    I actually got it booted (finally) from the CD, backed up some stuff,
    then restarted a few times and it was okay. But it froze again. And
    I"m at the same spot.

    I noticed the keyboard doesn't blink, so it's not seeing the keyboard.
    I think it may indeed be the logic board at this point.
    Probably take it to Mac-Fushion next week. $$$ :(
    Thanks again,
