IMac (Intel) :: G5 / Intel OS 10.6 System Does Not Start Up After Connecting New Router

Jun 28, 2014

After connecting the imac to a new router the system hung completely up. After each input, e.g. opening preview or a browser, the coloured turning disc appeared and nothing happened anymore. Several restarts, also in safe mode,  were unsuccessful. I could not switch to another user.  Restart is only possible at all from installation disc but thereafter problem remains the same.

IMac Intel :: Unable To Turn On System / No Fans Start Up And The Screen Does Nothing

Jan 25, 2007

My parents recently bought an iMac. Yesterday my mom was playing a game when the computer froze. Neither force quit or holding the power button was doing anything so in her frustration she unplugged the system. Today, after plugging in the system again, it won't turn on.

I press the power button on the side of the wireless keyboard and the green light on the keyboard turns on for about 3 sec and then starts flashing. No fans start up and the screen does nothing.

Desktops :: IMac Not Connecting To Wireless Router

Dec 17, 2010

I recently purchased an iMac desktop and installed it in my home office. It worked fine, except that the airport was connecting erratically to the wireless router, which is located about 5-7 meters away in a different room. I tried re-positioning the iMac to have better 'reception' but the problem persists. I can see the number of airport connectivity 'bars' changing every second and then going off fully. Very frustrating.

Could there be a problem with the iMac antenna? A colleague told me that if there's a wireless phone in the house near the router that can cause problems. Another told me that the router (a basic D-link 802.11g, 5 yrs old) needs to be replaced.

IMac :: Not Connecting To Router / Giving Me "invalid Password?

Oct 25, 2010

I have gone over many different methods of fixing my moms macbook not connecting to the internet. I know it's blasphemy, but I'm not a mac person to begin with and this is not making me think any higher of them.I know there are other posts about the issue, but people just keep getting off track with the first posters question.She has Mac OS X version 10.6.3At first it was giving me "invalid password", but that was not the issue, because my dads "HP" laptop was connecting just fineeeeeeee without any errors to drive the consumer insane! Now, it's just giving me "connection timed out".The first thing I did was to do a hard restart of my belkin 802.11g router to reset settings do default. Updated firmware to latest version.

For some reason, the airport utility was unable to find any airport wireless devices. I also connected the ethernet straight into the mac and it was still giving me the error.I tried making another location. I tried moving airport to the top of the network preferences and made ethernet "inactive". I have tried running network Diagnostics in safari and that was a waste of time..(sorry I'm so negative, but this has really gotten to me) This just kept giving me an error saying it can't fix the issue because it has no idea as well.I'm at the end of my rope and would love to have my opinion of macs back on the "maybe" side of things.

IMac (Intel) :: Not Connecting To Wifi Network - Connection Timeout

Aug 25, 2014

I recently switched cable providers to Time Warner.  They set up a Ubee cable modem and all devices (IPhone, IPad, AppleTV, etc) are all connecting to the wireless network except my IMac.   I tried renewing my DHCP lease, updating to OS X Maverick but every time I try and connect I get an error message that says "Connection Time Out".

IMac :: Intel IMAC Wont Start - Monitor Blank?

Jun 11, 2009

I have an Intel IMAC, which is now out of warranty as I have had it for 16 months (and I was dumb enough not to get AppleCare). A few days back, my computer would not startup and everytime I hit the power button, I would hear some spinning noise but no chime from the iMAC. Yesterday, I tried it again and this time I heard the chime but the monitor did not start. I was then able to SSH into the MAC and see that it is indeed connected to the network and booted up, but the screen is still dead. Any ideas what I should do before the painful trip to the apple store ?

IMac :: Connecting Via 5Ghz Dual Band Between 27" And Linksys WRT400N Router?

Mar 11, 2010

I installed a WRT400N router via my PC several months back and used an adapter to utilize the Dual Band, Wireless N network. The product worked very well on my PC.

I recently bought a 27" iMac. It easily connected to the 2.4 Ghz Wireless N network. Performance and reliability are both good. However, I cannot see the 5Ghz network listed as an available network. Video streaming is not as good without the 5Ghz network.

Supposedly the 27" iMac (with built in wireless N) can achieve the Dual Band connectivity with Airport Extreme...but I do not want to spend money to replace a perfectly good router.

IMac :: IMac 20" Won't Start (intel-2007)?

Jan 4, 2010

Yes I plugged in the block heater.....
Tried to reset the SMC (apple's only advice)
Tried to kick it into boot menu... no luck

managed to boot to Leopard install disk. backed into Disk Utility.... Verify System Disk produces: "Invalid B-tree node size...Disk Verify / Repair fail".

too bad too sad... no more information.

I don't know enough to know whether this is a SW failure or a drive failure, and my searches has led me here.

Also, my very first post in a forum, I read the rules and I hope I have found the right forum for this query.

IMac (Intel) :: 2010 Won't Start Up?

Sep 12, 2014

I have a 2010 iMac that won't start when I press the power button.  No chime, no fan running, nothing.  I tried unplugging it and plugging it into a different power source which made no difference.  I made sure the power cord connections are good.  We recently had an 8 hour power outage at my house and this is the first time I tried to power the iMac up since the power outage (it was working fine prior to the power outage).  Of note, my husband's iMac started up fine after the power outage.

Software :: New 24 Inch Intel IMac Won't Start?

Jun 22, 2009

I just got the new 24 inch intel iMac yesterday and it was working fine until tonight. I installed Skype and as I was using it, the computer froze and said I had to restart. So I did that. It happened again, but this time, it wouldn't restart. It went grey and kept making loud beeping noises. I looked up what could cause this and it said that if the RAM was upgraded improperly this could occur. The problem is, I never upgraded the RAM. Its been working fine for the past day until now. What should I do?

IMac (Intel) :: 3 Beeps At Start And Still No Sign Of Life

Sep 8, 2014

I turned my iMac on (2008 model) but after 10 minutes it went black and beeped 3 times loudly, repeating at 5 second cycles.  Shut it down by pressing the ON button for 5 sec.  Restarted and all worked for a hour before repeating the same problem...screen and keyboard and touchpad all locked out....shut down with the ON button.  On restart it gave me the 3 beeps every 5 sec with an ALL BLACK hard disk whirring, either.  I don't know how to do cardiac massage on an iMac.  Is it dead?  Is it the processor?  Is it the video card?  Is it the hard disc?

IMac (Intel) :: OS Won't Start But Windows Bootcamp Still Working Fine

Nov 30, 2014

My imac is around 4 years old and has been running both windows bootcamp and os x snow leopard for at least 3 years without any problems. My default operating system is mac and when I tried to turn it on this morning it gets stuck on the white screen with the grey apple icon and the loading icon spinning. Also a bar appears below this that I have never seen before.  I have tried opening the mac in recovery mode but it does not respond and goes to the same logo screen.  

I have tried holding the 'D' key down while the mac comes on and doing the apple hardware test but once the window pops up it does not complete the probing and appears to freeze just before its completion.  I have also tried booting in safemode but the script stops at these commands:

-launch tl: Please convert the following to launchd: etc/mach_init.d/dashboardadvisory.plist

-launch_msg(): socket is not connected 

However, the windows bootcamp is working fine and I can access my mac files from there.Also worth mentioning is that it is not a grey screen that appears on start up it is just the normal apple icon screen.

IMac (Intel) :: DVD Player Launches In Mavericks Using Recovery Mode Start Up But Not HD

Aug 26, 2014

Running mid-2009 iMac with latest Mavericks 10.9.4. 

DVD Player has been performing perfectly in Snow Leopard until this update to Mavericks. 

I've tried resetting SMC/NVRAM. Reinstalled Mavericks 3 times. Tried dumping the plist too. That did nothing. I've re-set SMC/NVRAM...done the Permissions using Disc Utility. 

I can get a DVD to load selecting the Recovery Mode StartUp disk. Then I reboot and the DVD plays fine using the DVD controls. But ejecting and trying it again - it won't play.

IMac (Intel) :: Why Won't Clipart CD Loading In System

Aug 23, 2014

I have a library of high end clip art and photography from Liquid Library 2003/2004. I've never had any problems using them with my system yet yesterday my iMac spit all of them without loading them. I even cleaned them and tried again. They still would not load. There is nothing on the CDs that should conflict, they are just jpegs, illustrations and photos created for using with high end graphics. Is there a reason this happened suddenly?

IMac (Intel) :: Save Emails Then Restore System

Aug 29, 2014

My iMac is starting to be a bit slow and I think it,s due to the fact that as a new iMac user, I downloaded lots of things I don't really need.  I have all of my files on an external hard drive so I'm not scared of what I might loose if I reset my system. 

Only thing I'm scared are my emails.  Is there a way for my to save everything on an external drive, restore my system (which I don't know how to do) and once everything is back in order, I could simply import my emails and it would be as if nothing happened (well, for my emails at least)?
