OS X :: Started IMac Back Up It Got Stuck On The Apple Logo With The Spinning Wheel Below It?

Dec 27, 2010

i need some help regarding my iMac. I was busy installing combo update 10.5.8 on my iMac when the power in the entire house went down due to the snow. When I started my iMac back up it got stuck on the apple logo with the spinning wheel below it. I can leave it there for as long as i like nothing happens. I had the idea to reboot using the CD's i got with the iMac but there is already a disc in the discloader so i can't put the reboot CD's in. anybody know how i can get my iMac to work again? There aren't any files on the computer that i neccesarely need but if i would be able to save my photo's etc. it would be great.

MacBook Pro :: Its Stuck On Spinning Wheel, Apple Logo - Not Responding To Disc?

Jul 5, 2012

'Ive had a MacBookPro for about a year and a half - with zero problems to report. But, yesterday, I decided to do a software update for OSX. While waiting on it, I relaized I was running late for an appointment, got impatient and did a forced shutdown (stupid move, I now know). Anyway, upon restarting it, I get the usual start-up chime, then the grey screen with the apple logo and the spinning wheel - and then it stays there. I tried putting the operating syten disc in and did a start-up - same results. Ditto for safe start. I also tried to reset the NVRAM, got the second chime, then back to the same. Is there anything you folks can suggest? Is there a way to override this and get back to normal? I hope I'm merely having hiccups related to the operating system. Or could this be a sign of the dreaded logic board failure that I fear?

Intel Mac :: Won't Start - Get Apple Logo With Spinning Wheel, Question Mark That Disappears And Then Blank Blue Screen?

Jul 1, 2012

My daughter's old I Mac won't start. It is not backed up.  We want to get some things off of it if we can. When we turn it on, we get the Apple logo with spinning wheel for awhile, then a question mark briefly and then a sky blue blank screen.  Is there any hope of getting this to work?  This computer is out of warranty.  Does it seem that if we reinstall the Operating System we might find old data?

Software :: Apple Logo And Spinning Wheel On Restart

Oct 8, 2009

I recently installed a new hard drive into my Power Mac and I installed the Mac OS X 10.4 software. After the download, the computer restarted and after it restarted, the Apple Logo appeared and some type of spinning circle (Circle made up of lines) stared to spin. I also replaced the battery inside and hit the reset button. The funny thing is, the computer was working fine yesterday. The circle has been spinning for a couple of hours now.

OS X Mavericks :: Apple Logo And Spinning Wheel After Hard Drive Replacement And Restore

Aug 26, 2014

I replaced my hard drive at the weekend in a mid 2010 MacBook Pro with a Samsung/Seagate 1TB 2.5 inch 5400RPM SATA II Hard Disk Drive.  The install of the hardware went fine, and the computer recognised it no problem.  I went through the process of formatting which again went ok, then I moved on to the restore of the old image from my time machine.  

After the 4 hours or so it said restore successful and a restart was required - after the restart I am presented with the apple logo and spinning wheel and can make no progress beyond this point.  

I have tried 3 restores now - all of which were 'successful' and have the same issue.  I have checked the disk using the repair tool and there are no recoded issues so I'm at a loss.

MacBook Pro :: Screen With Apple Logo Is Frozen During Installation Of OSX Snow Leopard?

Jun 5, 2012

I was installing the Mac OS X Snow Leopard (family pack), haven't installed yet, due to a moving from USA to Brazil. I put the CD on and followed the instructions of installation. After is ready to install, a message showed that would take about 1 hour and 45 minutes. So I left the room and when I came back the screen was bright with an "apple" on it, and its frozen, and I can't take the CD from the slot or do anything in the computer. What that means, did my laptop crashed? I did turn the power off and turn back on, but still the same.

MacBook :: Wouldn't Start - Stuck With Apple Sign And Spinning Wheel

Feb 5, 2010

my 2006 macbook has not been able to start. First it didn't even have the chime, then I read through some threads in this forum and figured out that one of my RAMs was not properly put in. I fixed that, now I get the chime, the apple sign, and a spinning wheel and I am stuck there forever.

I tried:

resetting PRAM, didn't help.

start from safe boot, still stuck with apple sign and spinning wheel.

boot from installation CD by holding either the "C" or "D" key, it would not start from the CD.

Curiously, I can start it in Windows and I am using Windows right now. Some threads said that it could be a hard drive problem, but if I am using Windows, does it mean that my hard drive is fine?

I've already spent 800+ fixing the logic board in 2008 b/c of a water spill and really don't want to spend any meaningful amount of money to fix this 1000 bucks or so laptop. If any hardware is in jeopardy, I'd rather just throw it away. However, I would like to at least be able to start it in Mac OS once so that I can back up my documents.

Intel Mac :: Stuck At Grey Screen And Spinning Wheel?

I have a IMac that suddenly can't move past the grey screen, apple logos, and spinning wheel.  I have used the OS system disk to repair the Macintosh HD, the app stated that the repair of the volume was successful, but in trying to use the HD to restart, I am still stuck with the spinning wheel.  What should I do next, or what am I doing wrong?

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Apple Logo With Spinning Gear?

Mar 13, 2012

My MacBook Pro froze up on me this morning and I was unable to shut it down normally.

No keys were working and so I forced it to boot by holding down the power button until it turn off. However, upon start up I'm stuck at the apple logo with the spinning gear.

I've tried safe mode - safe mode progress bar starts and then goes back to spinning gear. I don't have a copy of the OS on disk but I have my whole computer backed up to my time capsule.

OS X :: Snow Leopard Occasional Freeze With Spinning Color Wheel?

Sep 17, 2009

I bought my first uMbp the day Snow Leopard came out. Unfortunately, it was not installed on the uMbp. So upon running the mbp for the first time, I proceeded to install SL.

Now occasionally, maybe a once every other day, whenever I open up a few applications like Word or maybe even a new tab in Firefox, everything would freeze and the spinning color wheel would spin for about 30 or so seconds and everything would resume to normal.

Now I ask, is this normal behavior? I have the 2.26ghz uMBP edition with 2gb of ram.

Should I go ahead and do a clean re-install?

IMac (Intel) :: Screen Is White With No Spiral And Apple Logo - Snow Leopard OS X 10.6.8

Dec 11, 2014

Why is my  Snow Leopard OSX 10.6.8 IMac screen all white when I turn it on?  There is no spiral and no Apple logo and the desktop does not appear.  The screen is just white.  

Prior to this, we had a wind storm in our area with some power glitches today.  After one of them, the dock items disappeared and just the wallpaper was there. The colored spinner began going around when I clicked on the mouse but nothing was happening.   I unplugged it to try to reset it, but now the screen comes up all white, there's no apple logo that appears at start up and that's it.  Now what should I do?

OS X :: Snow Leopard Shutdown - Blue Screen And Progress Wheel Just Spinning

Mar 4, 2010

I upgraded to Snow Leopard and a few days later when i went to shutdown my mac pro after i woke it up, i got the blue screen and progress wheel just spinning. After calls with Apple, running both long and short hardware tests, 3 snow leopard discs, a clean install, 2 upgrades, the tech gave up. The clean install was a bare bones install with no applications installed. I would now have to take it into a repair shop and pay for software tests. This is a one year old mac pro with apple care. I used Time Machine to restore to leopard, and all is ok. Has anyone heard of this problem? I'm quit happy to stick with Leopard, but am upset that an apple software problem has to be fixed and paid for by me. I assume if it was a hardware problem it would show up in Leopard.

OS X :: Unable To Reinstall Snow Leopard / Slow System With Waiting Spinning Wheel

Jul 29, 2010

Today, I decided to reinstall Mac OS X Snow Leopard on my iMac, to have a fresh & new copy of Mac OS. I've done this before on my Macbook, and it worked perfectly. The iMac would not read the original Reinstall DVD that came with it. Instead, it would eject it, though it would work it on another Mac. But when I inserted my Snow Leopard disk that I bought separately, it worked.

However, when I entered the reinstall screen, it is extremely slow and I nearly can't use it. I did already use the Disk Utility to erase the hard disk files. So, it is extremely slow, and it wouldn't install either. All I get is the amour of time left, but it doesn't change, just gives me a waiting spinning wheel. It's been stuck on the screen for several hours.

The iMac was bought in January, I believe. What should I do?? This is very weird. Should I take it to the Apple Store, or is there a way to fix it?

IMac :: Screen Stuck On Spinning Wheel?

Nov 13, 2010

I was away at a friend's yesterday and left my computer on and downloading a torrent (I have done this before and everything has been fine). When I came back today, I noticed that my computer was working very slowly so I restarted it. However, it would just stay at the grey screen with the wheel spinning forever instead of moving on to the blue screen.

I know that this has been reported many times before, even on this forum, but everything I tried does not work. I tried:

Holding down Command+S at startup and entering the command fsck -fy. Did not fix the problem
Opening the Install Disc and going into Disk Utility. I repaired the permissions and verified that the HD has no problems but the problem persisted.

Going into Safe Mode. This actually works fine, but unfortunately offers an extremely limited functionality of my computer.

Intel Mac :: Not Booting Up - Stuck At Apple Logo Screen With Progress Spinner

Jul 3, 2012

My 24 inch iMac is not getting pass the apple logo. It acts like it's loading, but then the little progress spinner (not sure of the name) stops spinning after 2-3 minutes. It never wants to get pass that. I'm running the latest version of Lion.

Here's the specs:
3.06GHZ
4GB
500GB
NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GS

So far I've tried using disc utility on my snow leopard disc....it doesn't load. I've tried to start in safe mode...it loads about half way and stops. Oddly enough windows xp works in bootcamp. It runs okay besides when I try to move windows. I'm guessing it's the graphics card. No idea really.Here is a video I made to show you what I mean: [URL]. I've also tried installing a new 1TB HD and it still won't boot from a disc for some reason. I tried install snow leopard through the internal superdrive and with an external superdrive. No dice.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.1.x)
