Title:

It died, I ran a hardware test

Text:

iMac G5 Power PC 1989 The Hardware test hung up on the memory test for over half an hour( i finally gave up and quit the test). It doesn't boot from a disk any more, I get a O with a/ through it. Any ideas? == Update == I tried reseating the ram again and I got it to start up from the install disc. Right now it is Checking the installation disc so it can install the software. I'll let You know how that goes.
