IMac (Intel) :: Powers Down While Starting In Safe Boot Mode Running OS X Mavericks (10.9.4)

Sep 9, 2014

My 2014 21" iMac powers itself down after about 10 seconds while trying to startup in safe boot mode. I'm not even sure why it is trying to start in safe boot mode. I shut it down after a power outage while plugged into an APS UPS. I'm guessing that since I interrupted the auto shutdown it is restarting in safe boot mode. Either way, I get a grey screen with a big apple and a progress bar. The progress bar gets to about a tenth full and the power just shuts off. 

I've tried starting up while holding the alt key to select the Macintosh HD. The same thing happens.

Intel Mac :: Computer Just Freezes - Select What Drivers Want On Boot When Starting In Regular Mode?

Apr 19, 2012

It's a 2.16 intel Core 2 duo with the ATI Radeon X1600 128MB video and I'm running OSX 10.7.3. It started happening on Snow leopard so I thought maybe upgrading to Lion would fix it but it has continued exactly the same. I've had an issue for a while now where the computer would just freeze all of a sudden. It happened after a few days at times while sometimes it happen right after a reboot.  

Here are the things I've tried. 

1. I upgraded to lion

2. I replaced the ram

3. Look at the crash log but found nothing

4. Ram mem check utility but it found nothing 

I can boot the computer in safe mode by holding the shift key and it works perfect with no freezing but I loose audio support becuase I think it's not loading the audio drivers. Question is: Can I select what drivers I want on boot when starting in regular mode not safe mode in order to try to disable drivers until I find the issue? Is there anyplace else that I can find which driver caused the computer to freeze after a freeze/crash? If I can ID the driver is there a way to update/replace the driver if it doesn't come up in "software update"? I'm thinking it's the video driver becuase I would occationally get some weird things happening on the screen that I attributed to an older display.

OS X :: Won't Work With Starting In Safe Mode

Jun 11, 2008

I started (because I wanted to) my MBA into safe mode. Just hadn't tried it before. It took, what seemed, an inordinate amount of time to boot.

I pressed the shift ket at the BONG and released at the spinning gear screen. Is this normal? Does OS X perform disc read/write, verification, cache handling, etc. that causes the lengthy boot.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Starting Up In Safe Mode?

Jun 19, 2012

Restarted macbook in safe mode (i just pressed shift upon startup and logged in) to correct the resolution for my display settings that were affected earlier today when connecting to an overhead projector. The resolution is back to normal, but now everything is delayed. Moving between windows, opening word, opening an email, is all slow and delayed. This computer has never been this slow.

MacBook :: It Won't Boot After Trying To Repair With Disk Utility, Cannot Boot In Safe Mode

Jun 11, 2012

I have a MacBook 4,1 with Intel Core 2 Duo processor 4GB Ram. It is taking over 10 minutes to boot up past the gray apple screen when I turn it on. First I cleared the PRam (?) then I checked the disk using Disk Utility Verify, and it said the disk needed repairs. So I ran the disk repair and it said it was unable to fix the errors on the HD.  

I did a little research and tried booting into the Single User mode, then running /sbin/fsck -fy. It said that it found errors but could not fix them. I ran it two more times as suggested and got the same result each time. I then tried rebooting and now instead of taking 10 minutes to boot up, it takes about 5 minutes on the gray apple screen and then just turns off. I started in Verbose mode to try to troubleshoot the error and it appears the last thing to come across the screen before power down is a message "Apple Yukon 2: RxRingSize <= 1024....etc". 

I decided next I would run the Apple Hardware Tester. The test came back with an error code "4SNS/1/40000001:IG0C-0.265". I am very good at searching the web but I could not find any errors that had the IG0C or IGOC or any combination at the end, but plenty of 4SNS/1/40000000(1) errors with different endings. From what I can tell people are saying anything with 4SNS/1/4000000 is a logic board failure, but this computer was literally just booting this morning until I did the /sbin/fsck -fy.

OS X :: Won't Boot After Terminal Safe Boot Command

May 15, 2010

After numerous attempts at booting into safe mode while holding shift on start-up, I tried entering sudo nvram boot-args="-x" in terminal to force it manually. Turns out my mac didn't like it that much.

Now whenever it starts up, it hangs on the gray screen for a bit and turns off immediately, never booting.

IMac PPC :: It Will Not Boot Out Of Safe Boot Mode

Apr 22, 2012

I have a Imac PPC with a 2Ghz processor and 1GB of Ram.  I am running leopard 10.5.8.  Recently i woke the PC from sleep mode to find a blue screen with only the cursor working.  Using the internet, I determined how to get the PC booted in safe mode.  I have used all the disk utilities at my disposal along with onyx and cocktail to try and fix what I believe is a startup problem. I hae booted the PC in single user mode and tried the fskc codes, which i believe is just the same as the disk utility. Based on my computer all permissions are correct and there is nothing wrong with the HD.  The PC still will not boot normally.  I have even done an archive and re-install of Leopard.

OS X :: Can't Boot In Safe Mode?

May 17, 2010

I have a 08 MacBook pro (not unibody) and it is now not booting up. I recently installed a Hitachi 500gb hard drive on the computer and restored through time machine and it worked fine for about 2 weeks and now wont boot and I'm wondering if its probably the hard drive. When I click power the light on the front of the computer will come on and it will sound like it is about to boot then a clicking noise seems to come from the computer and it instantly shuts off. I have gotten it to turn on a couple times since it happened by slamming the comp on the bed then for some reason it will work but as soon as I shut it, it wont turnback on. Any ideas?

Oh and PS the screen never comes on and can't boot in safe mode.

OS X :: How To Boot Up From Disc - Pressing C While Starting Up Doesn't Work

Jan 14, 2011

I was trying to boot up from my Snow Leopard disc last night to run Disk Utility (to repair my hard drive). I pressed C while starting up but it took me right to my login screen. I did this several times, no luck. I'm using a 15" MBP btw.

I also tried the same thing on my sister's MacBook (using her own install disc) -- same thing, straight to login screen.

I know pressing C used to work before because the MacBook used to belong to me and I did an erase & install before passing it down to my sister.

MacBook Pro :: What Can I Do In Safe Mode To Fix Boot

Jul 5, 2012

MY MBP is giving me the "NOT" sign on start-up. This comes after initially displaying the Apple logo.This MBP had a new logic board installed by Apple just two weeks ago -- and I know I can take it back but I'd like to fix this myself. I put in a different hard drive after getting the MBP back. It has worked fine for several days. Don't know if these points are relevant, but:

1. First thing I noticed today is that neither of the USB ports would read a flash drive. The port would, however, work mouse and keyboard.

2. The initial non-boot episode took place when I had external hard drives daisy-chained in via Firewire. But, again, this had worked previously, as recent as this morning.This may be significant:

3. The last tasks performed on the MBP were -- for the first time -- to edit video in FCE, make DVD in iDVD, burn IMG file.

4.I have connect this MBP as a target FW drive to another MBP and run "disk verify" and "disk repair" in Disk Utility. It says the drive and permissions are okay.

5. I have booted to a copy of Disk Warrior (latest version, version 4, I believe) and rebuilt directories and files along with verify/repair permissions (everything DW will do). And when re-starting, it still won't boot.

6. When I boot off Snow Leopard DVD and run Disk Utility"verify disk" says "the volume appears to be ok.when I "repair disk" it reports "Volume repair complete." and "Updating boot partitions for the volume as required."

7. I'm able to boot in SAFE MODE, but when I try to restart in normal mode, it won't boot (so nothing was automatically fixed)What can I do in safe mode to address my problem?

OS X :: Stuck At The Starting Login Window - Normal Boot Halts

Apr 15, 2005

I installed all the Software Updates available, including the iSight and Airport updates (mainly to get rid of them, and I may add these later to my G5 iMac), and now when I reboot, I get no further than the "Starting Windows Login" part...

I have to assume its something to do with adding the updates as it was all working fine before then...

I can start in Safe Mode fine, and I get in OK, but normal boot halts (no errors, mouse works, just goes not go any further) at the "Starting Login Window"

Any thoughts on how to either A) Reverse the Updates B) Get around this?

OS X Mountain Lion :: IMac Running 10.8.5 - Applications Starting On Its Own After Boot Up

Nov 30, 2014

I have a problem with my iMac which is running OSX 10.8.5. I think the easiest way to explain this would be to just give a simple example. For example let's say I have Excel and Word both open. I shut them both down. Then I completely shut down my computer. Power off. I go to bed. Next morning I boot up and guess what? Word and Excel are now running again, just as if I had never shut them them down.

Power Mac G5 :: Startup Only In Safe Boot Mode

Oct 11, 2007

We have an older model G5 Dual (no Intel Core) at the office that we tried to install CS3 on. I told them that first we would need to upgrade from 10.3.8 to 10.4.10, which they did, and then installed CS3. But they did it without running the disk utility repair permissions after the OS software installation, as I have routinely done with my Mac Mini at home, after the horror I experienced with the 10.4.9 upgrade. For a couple of days, the computer ran fine, but I noticed an increase in the fan spinning up yesterday afternoon, then quirky keyboard things -- like I'd select an item with point and click, and it would highlight everything else near it, I'd go to quit an application and it would ask if I wanted to quit all applications.

After backing up my current InDesign work files on a flash drive (but not the whole darn art folder), I rebooted and it came up in Safe Boot mode 6 times without holding any key down. Attempts to boot from disk have failed, even with holding down the "C" key. It's also not allowing us to type out full passwords at the log-in screen... you start typing and after you hit four digits, it clears, then only allows two digits. How we can:
1.) Force boot from disk, and,
2.) Hopefully fix with disk utility whatever wonkiness is occurring?

Information:
Mac Mini, Intel Core & G5 Dual (not Intel)
Mac OS X (10.4.10)
