iMac G4

Originally known as "The New iMac" the iMac G4 was created to replace the iMac G3 as Apple's all-in-one desktop computer. The G4 is easily recognizable by its swiveling monitor mounted above the hemispherical computer. Steve Jobs quoted it as being "a design that will last till the next decade."

This model should be close to yours:

Apple iMac G4/1.0 17-Inch (Flat Panel) Specs

Identifiers: iMac 17" 1 GHz - M8935LL/A - PowerMac6,1 - M6498 - N/A

Unplug it, press and hold the power on button for 10 seconds then plug it back in and give it a try. Does it do anything when you try to start up, any lights any sounds?

Does the noise seem to be the same than the one in this video ? If yes, you see how to solve your problem ! Warm it and it will start but never shut the iMac down.

Mine is doing the same thing, but not making any noise from fan. Tried to use the hair dryer, but no luck. Any other way outside of replacing the logic board?
