Why does my machine freeze after 10 min or so minutes?

My machine freezes up after a few minutes of use. Vertical and horizontal dashes and lines start to appear, and the machine locks up. The mouse and keyboard become inoperable. I have power it down and let it sit for an hour or more. However, it freezes up again after a few minutes.

Open it up and look at the capacitors. See if they are leaking, bulging or corroded. He's more information on the problem: http://jimwarholic.com/category/imac_g5

+ right. I had a G5 this weekend where a dead capacitor caused the HDD not beeing recognised anymore. Weird but a replace fixed the problem.
