IMac :: Shuts Off In Middle Of Loading Screen

Jul 7, 2009

I have a mac mini intel and I was in the middle of working with my blogs, then there was an annoying spinning wheel of death, so normally, I would hold the power button for few button to restart and I did. then when the desktop was loading, everything was back to the "new" desktop with alot of stuffs missing, so I restarted it again using the apple menu, then the startup screen took so long and out of nowhere, it shutted down by itself. I tried to power it on again and again, unplugged the cords, still didn't work.

MacBook Pro :: Startup Screen With Apple Logo And Grey Loading Bar Then Unexpectedly Shuts Down

Jun 26, 2014

I have a MacBook Pro from 2010 I believe with iOS Maverick installed. (MacKeeper is also on there, which I just found out is apparently malware) 

So three days ago I was watching Netflix, the image froze, but the audio kept going. Figured my internet was slow, so I waited a little, nothing happened. pressed escape to leave the full screen mode, but nothing happened. None of the keys would do anything, not even the sound or brightness keys. So I did a force shut down by holding down the power button. 

I waited a little, then decided to turn it back on. Start up sound played, white screen with grey apple logo and loading gear appeared together with a grey loading bar. I figured that this meant it had to repair something. But after about a minute or two it just went to a black screen/ shut down. I left it off for a day, tried it again, same thing. Next day I tried booting it up while holding the shift key to do the safe boot (I knew it wouldn't work since I already had the grey loading bar anyways), same thing happened.

IMac (Intel) :: Grey Smudge In The Middle Of Screen?

Nov 30, 2014

OS X Yosemite

iMac (21.5-inch, Mid 2011)

Processor 2.5 GHz Intel Core i5

Memory 4GB 1333 MHz DDR3

Startup Disk Macintosh HD

Graphics AMD Radeon HD 6750M 512 MB 

Not sure exactly when it started but I noticed it about half an hour ago and have come straight online to 'troubleshoot' the problem. The is a grey smudge/shadow in the middle of my screen and I am unable to remove it by cleaning the screen or restarting my computer. I have seen similar issues posted with no resolve so I don't know if people discovered a fix or just gave in and took the computer into the Apple store. With no way to transport the computer safely into the city centre, I would like to avoid doing that if at all possible.

IMac :: Suddenly Shuts Down - Screen Warm

May 25, 2009

I received my new iMac on May 20. It is a 3.06 with an ATI card. I have not had much time to use it until this evening. I had been been setting up some bookmarks in Safari and then was working on a spreadsheet for about an hour when it suddenly shut down. The power strip in which it was plugged in still had it's light on. The iMac is the only item plugged into the strip. I then felt around the screen, the bottom section was cool but the top was rather warm.

The temperature in the air conditioned house is 71�F. Programs open at the time were Safari - which was on an idle screen as I had logged out of a site. Two sessions of Finder Entourage Excel - which I was actively using. Is this an over temp shutdown? I recall some people posting the temperature of their Macs. Are there any monitors on the iMac to see how hot it is running? There were no warnings that it was going to shut down.

IMac (Intel) :: Shuts Down During Load Up Screen

Aug 24, 2014

I just got home and I realized the power was out. I bought this iMac literally like two months ago (I actually bought one two months ago but it wouldn't even turn on so they gave me a new one) It was working perfectly fine, and I was writing a report. I left the computer on and left the house only to return hours later with the power out, and when I turn it on it shows the start up screen with the Apple Logo, the little progress circle, and a progress bar that fills up to the end everytime but once it fills up to the end it stays there for a few minutes then the computer shuts off.

MacBook :: Random Shuts Off And Gmail Not Loading

Sep 1, 2009

I started getting the little 'x' on the battery symbol a couple of weeks ago and the computer would just shut off randomly. Now it's happening WAY more since I installed the latest updates. And for some reason, when everything is working, I can see all sites except gmail, which will not load no matter what (my most important site). What gives?

IMac (Intel) :: Desktop Fan Comes On And Then Screen Goes Black Shuts Computer Down Every 5 Seconds

Jun 4, 2014

I have a 27 inch desktop. Upon turning the computer on within seconds the fan comes on. Then it goes to a high fan. Then it goes to a black screen. Then it shuts off. Then if you click the mouse it will come back on. This cycle repeats itself every 5 seconds. Only one time in the past month did it turn on normally and run for me.

Desktops :: IMac G3 Slot Loading - Screen Go Black?

Aug 11, 2009

The screen/crt of the imac that I have been using since about '98 went black - this actually happened a couple times previously but I was able to get back in (no idea - one of those things where out of frustration you just start pushing everything at once and it suddenly pops back on). I have tried everything - the internal battery, that little button on the motherboard (not sure if that is what it is called) that resets everything, the connection of the main power button on the front, etc. I am fairly sure it is stuck in sleep-mode or something (no beeps, hard drive doesn't make the usual booting-up sounds but you can tell that it is receiving power) but after months of wasted effort I finally gave up. I bought another slot-loading G3 and would like to swap hard-drives between the two - I have taken my old G3 completely apart so many times that I am totally comfortable with that aspect but have hesitated because if I somehow blow this one I will be left with nothing.

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.

Jun 2, 2010

I just brought a brand new IMAC 21.5" the base model (NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics) with 4 gb RAM. I downloaded the trial version of adobe cs5 to check if it runs ok but when I am starting things from scratch like just creating things from a blank canvas it runs so slow like trying to paint stuff and render it comes up with a loading screen it just doesn�t do it straight away. But when I am working on photos it seems to run ok. Is there away to solve this issue? Do I need to updated my RAM to make it run smooth?

MacBook Air :: Red Pixel Stuck In Middle Of Screen

May 29, 2008

After my great experience the last day with my two days old MBA 1.8Ghz/SSD I stopped smiling after I discover a stucked RED pixel in the middle of the screen. Normally I'm not such a whiner, but $3000 is a lot of money for a laptop, and I think you should expect a 100% flawless product for this huge amount of money. What to do? I tried the online video fixer for more then 10 minutes... didn't work. Should I give it a try at Apple? Or is it a no go? The problem is, I bought it at an Apple reseller who had this MBA as showroom demo for a month. So even though for me the product is only 2 days old, i think for Apple it is one month old and that would imply that I lost all my warranty and refund rights already. What to do?

Its not like its bright but you can still notice it.

MacBook :: Burn In Or Stuck Pixel In Middle Of Screen

Apr 7, 2009

Last week was spring break for me and I left my Macbook at home, didn't figure I would need it while on the beach. So when my macbook was at home it was completely off, not asleep, off and unplugged, didn't think it needed to be charged and wasting electricity. So when I get home, open it up, everything seemed fine, but then I passed a page on the web that was all black and noticed a funny shaped spot in the middle of the screen that doesn't display blacks correctly - it looks like a burn in but its an odd shape.

And its only on the blacks when its visible, I cant see it at all on any color. If you look at the pixels themselves upclose the middle is more grey and the outside is black. I tried running a burn in/stuck pixel thing for about an hour and it didn't help at all, so I am pretty curious as to what caused this. I got my macbook a few days b4 christmas so idk where that comes into replacing it or repairing it. I've started calling it a virus for fun that only likes to show up in the dark.

OS X Mavericks :: Screen Froze Up And Icon Showed Up In Middle

Aug 26, 2014

I was normally using my Mac, as usual, when it suddenly crashed. The screen froze up and this icon showed up in the middle...A few minute later, it was still there so I had to force restart my mac. But when it started again, the image of a flashing folder with a question mark appeared. I googled a bit what it could mean, and I quickly found it was something about directory corruption. I tried to open the disk utility as advised to check if the disk was damaged, however it said the disk was alright, and it didn't give me the option to repair it.  So now I'm stuck in the disk utility, and my only options are:

- Use time machine (I didn't save my data using it so useless)

- Reinstall OS X (Deleting all my content - exactly what I want to avoid)

- Repair the Disk (Which I can't even do) 

So my main question is, is there a way I can get back all my files/data before reinstalling OSX? Are there other ways to repair what is broken without resetting my whole comp? Is it even possible that your mac crashes at any moment, making you lose EVERYTHING for no reason?
