Software :: A Grey Screen Fades Into White And The Apple Logo Never Appears?

Nov 23, 2008

I have had my MacBook for almost two years and the battery had just died on me. So I sent it back to Apple and got a new one. But ever since switching over to this new battery, my computer has had issues starting up. A grey screen fades into white and the Apple logo never appears. The computer will just stay like that for hours. A friend suggested turning the power off and back on, holding apple+ctrl+P+R, which worked.However, the next time I turned my computer on, the screen stayed white again, without an Apple logo. Can you tell me what the deal is? Should I bother reporting this to Apple? Is this permanent damage I'm going to have to go thru everytime I start me laptop?

PowerPC :: Load Up The Blue Screen With The Apple Logo, But Then The Screen Goes Black Or Flickers?

Feb 4, 2008

I am looking at purchasing an Ibook G4 but the description of the item includes this:"When you switch it on it begins to load up i.e. the blue screen with the Apple logo, but then the screen goes black or flickers. Said friend has kindly wiped the hard drive for me so now when you switch it on it makes the �opening� noise then you get a blue screen with alternating �?� and the Finder logo."

I have a feeling this may have been a temporary fault with the screen connector being loose and possibly damaged.But i assume the alternating "?" and the "finder logo" is simply a lack of OS?

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)

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 :: Screen Not Working Fine / Blue Screen Appears And Then Everything Gets Dark

Aug 2, 2010

I have a problem with my MacBook screen. Everytime I try to turn on the MacBook, the blue screen appears for a second and then everything gets dark (but I can see that the computer turned on normally, it's just the screen that gets almost black, without light). Sometimes only the right side of the screen is blue and then gets dark just like the left one. I was looking for the problem and I perceived that the left side seems to be loose and I can't fix it. What should I do?

IMac (Intel) :: No Apple Logo Appears During Startup

Aug 28, 2014

I am fixing this 2007 iMac for free for an autistic child. Apparently, changing computers for someone that is autistic isn't ideal. I don't have the history with this iMac, just that it isn't working. They supposedly did have the hard drive replaced? It sounds like a dvd is inside it when it starts up, could be the installation dvd?Either way, I have not seen it before where the Apple logo refuses to show on the start up screen. It just stays gray.  

1. I've tried zapping the PRAM. Didn't have any changes. 

2. I tried starting up in safe mode, but getting passed the apple logo is required for that 

3. I tried single user mode, but getting passed the apple logo is required for that 

4. I tried holding the c key to start up off of the dvd, nothing happens 

5. I tried holding the mouse button (and cmd, opt, f, o) to manually eject the dvd during start-up.

MacBook Pro :: Blue Screen Appears On Startup And At Shutdown

Feb 19, 2012

A few months ago, I bought a macbook pro and it was doing fine. But recently, every time it starts, a blue screen appears for a split second then it goes to log- in. Then, every time I shutdown, it will also show up for a split second then shutdown. It doesn't affect the computer but I'm just wondering how to stop it.

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.

MacBook Pro :: Not Booting Up - Blue Then Black Screen Appearing

Jun 19, 2012

I have a MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo 2.5GHz/250GB HDD/2GB RAM that won't turn on, unless I leave the power button pressed, in which case, as you all know, the computer turns off again. It started about 3 days ago. Set the computer to sleep, shut it closed, took it to another room and opened it. The MBP gave me the blue screen, then black and then... nothing.At first I thought it was the HDD, but now I'm having second thoughts. I now think it's the cpu fan.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Screen Goes Black Just As The Blue Background Appears?

Apr 26, 2012

I have an iMac 21inch, Late 2009.  I found after it was runing really slow that my hard drive was failing.  It told me there were SMART errors on the drive.  The computer is out of warranty and I'm in the middle of no where so i have no Mac store to take it to.  I bought a new drive, same model, and installed it into the computer.  It turns on fine, but after the Apple logo and spinning coge wheel the screen flashes, shows the blue back ground like its going to load the desktop and then goes black. 

I've tried connecting an external monitor to it and shows up like an extended display.  I've tried connecting it to another Mac, a Mini, and the Mini can boot off the iMacs hard drive just fine.  If it Target Disk mode the Mini and boot the iMac I get the same flash of blue desktop then it goes black.  

This is where it gets weird though, I'm sure your thinking, ok the screen is going bad...  BUT,  I boot off an Ubuntu CD, or the AHT disk and it loads fine and has no turning black.  Its only when booting into the Mac OS or the installation disk.   

One last note is that when its at the black screen and I'm sure its loaded the desktop, if I hold the power button down for about 3-4 seconds, till I hear a click.  I then press the button again right away and the screen flashes on showing me the desktop and everything, for about 2 seconds...

IMac (Intel) :: On Startup Apple Logo Briefly Turns Red With Dark Blue Background

Jun 23, 2014

I purchased a new late 2013 27 inch iMac 3.4Ghz i5. The only thing I did after pulling it out of the box was restore Time Machine from my previous iMac. On startup the machine boots as expected, but gets interrupted by the screen turning a dark blue, and the apple logo turning bright red, for about a second or so, then boots as normal, and opens Mavericks. I've spoken to Applecare - they suggested I re-install Mavericks, which I did. The problem is still there. I've done a hardware diagnostics test - no problems. Though I wonder if it could be a faulty graphics card? As far as I'm aware there are no other issues with the iMac. The machine is under warranty but would love to solve this if possible.

Intel Mac :: Booting Up To A Blue Screen?

Apr 10, 2012

I'm trying to boot a relatively new intel iMac. I can boot to a blue screen, in which all that happens is the music that happens with the welcome video of mac OS X.  

I currently have no keyboard to do diagnostics with because I don't have the wireless keyboard that came with the mac, nor a wired keyboard. I'm planning on borrowing a simple wired keyboard to use to diagnose the mac in verbose mode and safe mode etc. 

The owner of the mac has done a complete reinstall, hence the welcome video music, and that hasn't worked, as the screen shows no sign of anything other than blue.

MacBook Pro :: Grey Screen No Apple Followed By Blue Screen With Vertical Lines?

Nov 30, 2014

grey screen no apple followed by blue screen with vertical lines. Graphics and logic board replaced <6 months ago. What to do? I held down shift, it gets HOT HOT and makes noises. (for safety mode) followed by a blank grey screen and blue screen. Then tried the other way (I think  it's command alt delete? I don't remember) and it turned from grey (no apple symbol) to blue blank. Then third time, grey followed by blue with vertical lines, not blocky clear lines that you can see if you are close to it.

MacBook Pro :: Apple Logo Comes Up Then Screen Goes To Vertical Lines?

Sep 11, 2010

I replaced my cracked LCD screen on my 17" macbook pro, and upon firing up you hear the chime, and the apple logo comes up just fine. Then after that it goes to horizontal lines, and no image on it. If I plug in an external, it shows up just fine on it, and if I put in the original cracked screen, I can see my desktop and everything as well.
