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?

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?

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 :: 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.

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 :: Won't Start Up / Pass Apple Logo?

Dec 10, 2014

My Mac was working perfectly fine until my charger broke. I ordered a new one online that took about a week to arrive. When I got the new charger the first time I used it my Mac was so slow some apps wouldn't even open. The 3rd time I had to force shutdown and now it turns on but won't pass the apple logo. My only worries are saving the things that were on my Mac, is there any way it can save it on a hard drive even tho it won't pass the apple sign?

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.

MacBook Pro :: Won't Start - Stuck On White Screen With Apple Logo

Aug 20, 2014

My MacBook Pro won't boot past the white startup screen with the Apple logo. After doing some trouble shooting my best guess is that the issue is either an issue with the logic board or the hard drive, but I am no expert so I may not be right. Here is what I have tried so far. I have done all these steps multiple times and the results have varied, but here are my most recent results:

1) First off, there are no peripherals connected so that is already ruled out as the cause.

2) When I try starting up in safe mode (holding shift while starting), the Apple logo, spinning wheel and progress bar appear. The progress bar fills about a third of the way then stops. I have left it for quite a long time and it still stays at a third of the way.

3) When running a safe boot (holding shift+command+v at startup) it gives me a " SATA WARNING: Enable auto-activate failed" message, and then eventually times out. Here is the full message:

4) Resetting the PRAM (holding option+command+p+r at startup) does the second chime but only results in the flashing folder icon with the question mark.

5) I tried booting up the computer in single user mode (holding command+s at startup) and running fsck -fy, it again gives me a "SATA WARNING: Enable auto-activate failed", then eventually times out. Here is the full message:

6) I tried booting in recovery mode (holding option while starting). When I do this I do not get the OSX utilities screen. Instead I get a white screen, sometimes my hard drive shows up on the screen, sometimes it does not.

If i boot in recovery mode with my osx install disc inserted the disc appears. If I select the hard drive we are just back to the apple logo and spinning wheel. If I select the install disc it goes to the apple logo/spinning wheel again, sometimes it allows me to start running the install, but then when it gets to the step where you select the hard drive to run the install on, no hard drives appear.

So that's where I'm at. I do not care about losing any data because luckily I backed up this machine right before this started happening.

MacBook Pro :: Does Not Start Past Gray Screen / Apple Logo And Rolling Circle?

Apr 26, 2012

My Macbook Pro is not starting past the grey screen and the apple logo and the rolling circle. I have tried every method and I am desperate to do anything to start my computer even erase the entire disc. I have contacted the Apple store and they told me the cost will be equivalent to $600 to just repair it and no way I will be able to afford it.I am willing to do anything and even erase my entire disc. However, for that the instructions on the Apple page state that 'Insert your Mac OS X 10.4 or 10.5 installation disc'. However, I do not have my installation disc Is there any other way I can erase the OS system and at least reboot my Macbook?

OS X :: When I Start Computer, Grey Screen Comes Up With The Apple Logo

Nov 10, 2009

When i start the computer and the grey screen comes up with the apple logo etc., a grey "loading" bar has started appearing in the bottom of the screen. Takes a few minutes for it to go away. In the meantime the computer gets very hot and the fans are up to 6000 rpm. Then the os starts up, and I cannot download anything, due to the fact that it thinks my harddrive is full, though i have more than 100 gb of free space.I cant even download the 10.6.2 now due to the harddrive appears to be full

PowerPC :: IBook G4 Booting - Gray Screen With Apple Turning Gear Comes On Start Up

Dec 30, 2008

A friend of mine brought over his 14" iBook G4, 1.33GHz, 60GB HDD and 1.25 GB RAM. The problem with it is that upon start-up, the grey screen with the apple/turning gear comes up, then after a few moments a blue screen will appear, though no box showing the start-up process. I've run a few basic diagnostics on this, including the lovely disk utility (which did nothing), I've run fsck, zapped the PRAM, etc, no success as of yet. At one point, I received a screen with alternating folders, one showing the smiley mac face, the other folder with a flashing "?". I cannot replicate this for the life of me. I have attempted to acquire files via TDM, though am not able to see the hard drive despite using 2 different laptops. Possibly the firewire cable itself is spent, though it's brand new! Here is where I become increasingly frustrated: I ask my friend for the boot disks as the ones for my own 12" iBook don't work (for whatever reason). He tells me that he loaded Leopard this summer (currently running 10.5.2, no updates loaded since), then proceeds to bring over boot discs for a MacBook...:headdesk: To begin with, it seemed like the HDD was fried, however, after running disk utility (and not hearing any negative sounds), it does appear that the HDD is fine. I'm thinking a kernel panic, though not sure how to resolve these.

My 3-month old iMac was responding very slowly when I used the latest version of Safari. So I forced quit the program. From then on, whenever I turned on the iMac, it would get stuck at the Apple logo start up screen. I had to unplug the power since the machine is getting very hot after 15 mins.

OS X Mavericks :: IMac Start Up With Apple Logo And Sound But Then Screen Turn Off

Jun 2, 2014

This situation began when I put my Imac on sleep. After, the screen turned on in black whit the cursor but I couldn't do anything.

Then to rebooted the machine, the apple logo and sound  began fine but the screen turned off, so moving the mouse the screen turned on in black with cursor. 

I'd tried many ways, resetting the PRAM, SMC, repairing the disk and permission, analyzing hardware, repairing fsck files.

Suddenly, when I entered in Verbose mode, mi imac brought into user choose screen and worked fine, but when I shut down and tried to start my mac in the next day, it didn´t work again.

iMac, OS X Mavericks (10.9.3)

Mac Pro :: System Start Till Apple Gray Logo Appears Then It Reboots And Keep Doing This In - Loop

May 12, 2010

I have an Early 2008 Mac Pro 3.2 GHz dual CPU (8 Cores in total) one day I started the system as usual and the system start till the Apple Gray Logo appears and then it reboots and keep doing this in (loop)

I started the Apple Hardware Diagnose and it hangs in the middle! the Apple Authorized shop/repair people told me (after the tried to fix it) it is mostly the Logic Board

Can it be the RAM or the CPUs? my mac is out of warranty and the cost to fix it is crazy! so I was thinking I can buy the parts and replace it my self.
