@German - if you can still adjust the volume but just not see it.. it is typically a video issue with either the LCD or video chipset.. if its not booting.. it may be an issue with the hard drive.

How can you download this video to your desktop? Difficult to watch because of slow download speed.

"Removing the front" of 2006 vintage G5, at top edge of the front there is a metal clip. The metal pieces visible left and right are two clips. The clip is released either by pinching the top edge and sliding the front up or reaching between the LCD and the inside of the front and pinching the clip lever closer to the inside of the front.
