Imac G5: hard drive failure or worse....

I have a 2005 Imac G5 20"ALS that having problems starting up. It now takes 3-4 tries with a hard shutdown to get it going. First, it may be a blank grey screen, then only a grey apple and the fan goes into high gear, or grey apple and spinning dashes (i.e. not the pinwheel).

So, Is my hard drive cr@pping out, or maybe electrical capacitors gone bad?

Thanks for your ideas.

David
