Intel Mac :: Core 2 Duo 17" Doesn't Start Anymore - It Only Stays At The Loading Screen?

Apr 15, 2012

My 2006(ish) Intel core 2duo 2.16 mhz 20"  imac wont start up, it only stays at the loading screen, how can I fix this? I have tried:

• safe mode reboot

• restart using p, r , command and option (resetting the pram)

• restart using the original Mac OS 10.4 disc

• restart so I get the image of the HD but I can't click on it to continue and restart again!     • single user mode (CMD+s keys at bootup, and then /sbin/fsck -fy) 

It just doesn't do anything else than display the grey screen, the apple and the spinning wheel (sometime, I do get a scrolling bar also!). I managed to perform a hardware test from the Mac OS disc and there seems to be no hardware problem. Nothing works.It stays stuck on the grey screen, with the apple and the wheel turning endlessly.

Software :: DVD Player Doesn't Start Anymore

Aug 2, 2008

my DVD Player doesn't start anymore. Along with some other applications(iChat, iCal, Expose, Automator) it all of a sudden is only displayed with the default application icon - the thing with the ruler and the brush and stuff.

The other applications seem to work fine except of the wrong icon thing.

When I try to start my DVD Player a popup comes up that says in bold letters ?? and underneath that ??10.

Intel Mac :: Why Safari Not Loading Homepage (Yahoo) Anymore

Jun 13, 2012

Suddenly about 5days ago, Safari suddenly stopped loading my homepage, - which has been my Homepage for years.I thought it was perhaps a Yahoo problem, but apparently not, as Safari loads any other page from my favorites etc without any hitch, meaning its clearly not an ISP problem either.I did find a thread that suggested un-ticking the 'Restore Windows' box in the General section in System Preferences, (not Safari Preferences), but I cant see a General tab in System Preferences?Additionally, I have deleted Safari, and reinstalled it, but problem still exists.I'm running OS X 10.5.8 and Safari version 5.0.6.

Intel Mac :: Screen Stays Black On Startup?

Apr 1, 2012

This 5 year old iMac makes the seek optical drive sound when switched on, but does not chime, but I can hear the hard drive going afterwards.

The screen just stays black, not a flicker.

The problem is that it is located in a small pretty isolated town in NE Brazil, I will be going back out there later in the summer so if anyone has any helpful ideas it would be most welcome. Fortunately we have a full CCC clone of the hard drive and a working MBP so we haven't lost anything, but it would be very good to have it working again.

Does it have a socket for an external monitor, I really cannot remember, as I have not seen it since November, I know the old round iMacs had one.

The nearest Mac store is probably in Rio or Sao Paulo which are a good day travelling by  car and plane so there is no chance of getting it there.

IMac :: 27" Doesn't Get Past Apple Loading Screen

Jan 28, 2010

I've got this little problem with my 2months old iMac i5 since this morning. Yesterday everything was fine, I Watched a movie and updated some software, nothing illigal or damaging. Today I tried to boot my iMac, It showed the apple loading screen, with some kind of loading bar under it. I thought he just had to do that because of the update, so I decided to make breakfast and come back to check on it. When I came back, the bar was gone, but he was still loading! (15 minutes later). So I decided to reboot. still the same problem. I decided to boot from cd to see if this works, to select the startup drive. First I tried to fix the hard drive, but it is unable to fix it. I don't care to format my mac, but would like to know if there are other options to try first.

Intel Mac :: Keeps Repeating Startup Chime - Screen Stays Black

May 5, 2012

The latest iMac model.When I click on the power button: I can hear the Hard disk and the DVD drive spin up. The screen stays black. The startup sounds plays half way through the first time, like its being cut off. After the first startup chime has been cut, the chime keeps playing in a loop. The computer doesn't come any further than that.

I have tried: Unplugging all peripherals, with the same result.
SMC reset: Unplug power cord and hold power button for 5 sec. PRAM reset...

It seems like the computer does not even get to boot and ignores all keyboard input. I also tried booting from the DVD drive with the installation disk. But I can't get any further than the repeating startup chimes.

OS X :: Start Up Doesn't Get Past Password Screen

Nov 5, 2009

After booting in safe mode, my MacBook Pro doesn't load the desktop/applications properly. Whenever I enter the password it asks me for the password again. Series of events: I connected external drives for the first time in Apple Bootcamp/Windows. They did not mount and Windows froze whenever I connected the drives. I tried it a few times, each time using the power button for turning the computer off. After a couple of trials the screen color was very weird (psychedelic) and I noticed that the computer had gotten hot (in Windows my fans don't work as they should) and I restarted the in OSX 10.4. The psychedelic colors were still present and the temperature reading was 71 degrees (smc control software). Searching forums in a panic that I might have fried my video card partially I found and followed a description on how to change the screen from "color" to "grey" under System Preferences>Universal access. This did not help as the psychedelic color/pixelness still persisted. Even worse, when I restarted the computer, the above mentioned problem occured (not getting the proper desktop, I can't run any application or shut the computer down, it always tries to reload the desktop after a couple of seconds). What I tried so far: -I resetted the PRAM using the Command, Option, P, and R keys and waiting for two additional startup sounds. Result: the psychedelic color is gone, it looks normal. But still cycles between grey and color during the desktop stall.-I repaired my startup disk with the OSX installation repairs were necessary -I repaired permissions with the installation disk...lots of repairs were made, but no success upon reboot -I started the computer in safe mode...result: I don't get past the password screen. As soon as I enter the password it asks me for it again.
