MacBook :: Display Works In Safe Mode But Not In Normal Mode?

Aug 21, 2014

I'm not sure what to do.  I haven't tried resetting NVRAM/PRAM or the PMU/SMC, but are there other options I can try besides those?

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 :: Keeps Booting In Safe Mode Plus Kernel Panic?

Apr 17, 2012

a bit complicated.   I have a 3 year old iMac, Snow Leopard 10.5.2 on the dics, but I updated it so..a pretty receent version of Snow Leopard. I had had kernel panics before- it turned out to be a bad RAM chip, replaced it and it fixed the problem. 

This time, I was hoping it was the same. I got a new RAM chip, swapped them out and ID'ed the bad one.  Reseated the RAM. Probelm is, when I was trying to fix the problem, I had booted in Safe Mode.  Now the iMac starts up normally- the chime, the Apple- AND the Safe Mode bar.

Which progresses for about 5 seconds before another Kernel panic descends.  This happens whether the keyboard is connected or not.  At this point the Safe Mode at startup bugs me more than the kernel panics! Sigh. 

I wonder if there's any key combo on startup I could try to at least get out of Safe Mode before Kernel panic sets in.  When my laptop has a kernel panic i can usually repair with Disk repair on CD.   I realize this sounds hopeless!  And i need it repaired, but money is an issue.

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.

Jun 2, 2014

My mac was being very, very slow so I turned it off, then as it it was booting it was taking ages so i restared in safe mode. While booting in safe mode the black bar at the bottom goes around 2/5 of the way across and then my macbook just switches off.Ive tried:fsckdisk utility repair/verifyreinstalling OS X Lion 

When i tried to repair, it said i needed to erase everything and reinstall the OS. Last night when i tried to it said both drives are locked so i couldnt. And now when i just tried again, neither drivers are appearing; the box is just blank. 

Let alone my livelyhood on the laptop, i have thousands and thousands pictures which if lost, would genuinley heartbreak me. I have much valuable data on my laptop and i really dont want to erase all data, because me being the gigantic fool that i am, i only have one time machine back up from about a year and a half ago.

IMac (Intel) :: Hard Disk Is Full And Can't Get To Safe Mode

Aug 26, 2014

I turned on my iMac (20in 2008 model) and after the apple logo appears, I get a gray screen that says "process 1 exec of sbin/launched failed". I'm pretty sure it's because my hard disk is full. I tried booting up in safe mode, but my wireless keyboard battery died. I put in new batteries, but I need to get to the desktop to reconnect the keyboard. I tried using a usb wired keyboard, but it doesn't power up until I'm on the desktop screen. I don't know what else to do. I need a keyboard to boot to safe mode, but I need to be fully booted to work the keyboard.

PowerPC :: 12" PowerBook G4 Not Booting Properly Unless In Safe Mode After Clean Install

Jun 29, 2009

I recently purchased a sort of beat up 1.5GHz 12" PowerBook G4, top of the line, and it arrived today. It boots up normally when the apple appears, then it shows the blue screen and then the mouse turns into a spinning wheel. Also, when I move the cursor, a second cursor from the same spot stays in the top-left corner. The PowerBook will only work normally as a headless server (powers on, lid closed), unless booted in safe mode. Another issue is the screen. The seller said there were lines going up and down the screen, but it varies depending on what is displayed on the screen. If the screen is grey or in target-disk mode, they do not appear, but on the 10.5 standard desktop pic, it changes pattern. The lines can be seen here: [URL]

OS X :: Won't Work With Kernal Panic / No Safe Mode And Target Disk Mode

Jul 6, 2010

I have a 15" mbp with 10.6 Intel core duo, 4gb ram with a boot camp and ubuntu partition through parallels. The other day I was installing xcode from apple's website, which failed 3 times after downloading saying the package couldn't be expanded. I left my computer for a while and came back where i then had to log in again. it rejected my password numerous time (i'm positive it was correct). when i restarted my computer i got a kernal panic screen when the apple logo came up. it told me to restart the computer which i did. didn't work. i restarted with the osx cd to use the disk utility. when it checked the drive it found a bunch of errors, which i then tried to correct. it went for a couple minutes then told me they couldn't be fixed and i should try to back up my data and reinstall osx. i don't know how to back up my hard drive when i can't log into my account. i've tried to boot in target disk mode and copy some files that way, but the only disk the other computer sees is my windows partition- no mac partition.

i've also tried these, none of these have worked: restarting in safe mode resetting the ram and pram booting with different sticks of ram all result in a kernal panic.

my windows partition still works fine though (as much as i hate to say it) the only things I really care about on my computer are my files from school and my itunes library. is there any way i can get these files off my computer?

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.

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.

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?

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?

OS X :: Unable To Boot Into Safe Mode Or Use Install DVD

May 11, 2010

I am using a Late 2009 Mac Mini. This afternoon I did a software update, it was 4 programs that were updated. I didn't take a look at what was updated, which was a mistake, I know. But anyways, they installed fine, and the Mac rebooted, it got to just before the user select/login screen and hanged there. I was able to move the mouse around, but nothing else, and after a long period of time, I powered off my Mac, and now it is hanging at the Apple logo.

I tried booting into Safe Mode, and the grey progress bar would appear but and get half way through and then disappear. Next I tried inserting the Install DVD, hold down C while it was booting up but that wouldn't do anything.

Software :: Macbook Won't Boot Up Even In Safe Mode?

Nov 27, 2008

I have a Macbook which just reboots constantly, you see the apple, the little whirly graphic that tells you it's starting up, then off it goes, chimes again and the same thing over and over again. I can't start up from the Install disc, it just keeps rebooting, I've zapped the PRAM not made any difference, won't start up in safe mode either. I've run disk uitility on it from another mac (Target Mode) but it said the disc didn't need repairing, and still it keeps on re-booting, over & over & over....

Software :: Won't Boot Into Safe Mode Or From The Osx Disk?

Nov 22, 2010

In an attempt to fix a sibling error showing in disk utility, following online help using fsck, my iMac will no longer boot. It just gets stuck on the grey screen with the circle constantly spinning. It won't boot into safe mode or from the osx disk. It will boot into verbose and fsck mode though.

When I try to boot from disk by holding c it just constantly restarts. I have nothing on my computer that I don't mind losing and I have tried everything on the apple support.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: MacBook Pro Won't Boot Into Safe Mode

Apr 29, 2012

I am running OSX Lion latest version on my Macbook Pro 4,1 and can't get the thing to boot from any source. Always get's stuck at the grey screen with apple logo. Have tried all the following...

- Straight Boot (power on)
- Boot via Recovery HD (hold option on bootup then select)
- Boot via Safe Mode (Holding Shift on bootup)
- Boot via Safe Mode Verbose (Shift, Command, V)
- Boot via bootable Lion USB Key (Hold option, and choose the USB drive - not the same USB key works on my other macbook pro)

On every one (except verbose) it just get's stuck on the grey screen with spinning timer thingy.I have done PVRAM reset, SMC reset and have reseated the RAM and all to no avail. I'm pretty sure the problem was caused by removing battery at wrong time (device not responding after sleep mode started and I plugged in power - should have been more patient!)

I have a Time Machine backup but it's a bit older than I thought and very much want to get my newer photos off it before rebuilding - not that Time Machine would work in current state anyway.So what are my remaining options? Will I have to open it up and remove the HD as next step or is there anything else left to try? Can I remove the HD and connect it via a USB caddy to my existing Mac to recover info (hard drive spins and sounds ok to me)?
