I really don't want to put the old warhorse down but my G4 1.5ghz mini will no longer boot. It will turn on and it will chime but it just hangs on the grey apple screen(tiger) forever. Safe Mode does not work and it will not launch from the restore disc either. I am at kind of a loss.

There was a black out right before this happened but that is the only anomaly that occurred close to it's presumed demise. It has never been upgraded and has never had it's case opened. HD failure? Ram fail? any ideas?

I presume you've tired the PRAM resets, and any other assorted hardware resets?
