OS X :: IMac Stuck At Apple Logo?

Sep 15, 2010

I own a 17" iMac Core 2 Duo. It has been crashing more and more lately. Now when I turn it on, it sits at the apple logo. The spinner does not appear. I tried new sticks of ram, and same thing. I can boot off a windows or Linux cd with the c key, but they freeze halfway through bootup. I ran a hard disk check also.

MacBook Pro :: Stuck At Apple Logo (no CD Boot Either)

Jan 22, 2010

I have a major problem with my first Generation MacBook Pro. It won't boot anymore: it just turns on and gets stuck at the Apple logo. There is no spinning wheel and nothing else happens. Pressing 'C' for booting from CD or pressing ALT and choosing the CD as an alternative boot source does not work either: it just does exactly the same, gets stuck at the apple logo. I already tried resetting the PRAM and NVRAM, as well as the SMC. This also did not change anything. CMD+V mode starts up then stops at the line "ACPI: System State [S0 S3 S4 S5] (S3)"

What can I do? I really need to save my Mac, there is some really important stuff on there

MacBook :: Stuck On Apple Logo For 10 Minutes And Then Boots

Apr 26, 2012

I have a white macbook which has a dead battery it only works plugged in. One night i left it downloading the updates and after that the machine kepts like 10 minutes on the apple logo and the she boot to the os. I reinstalled the os but still the same. I tried to replace the ram but now flases five times and does not start. I am assuming the new ram is bad. My question is replacing the ram and the hd will solve my issue. What are the specs of the ram and how much ram could be installed? It has to be on pairs? What is the meaning ofnthe flashing light?

PowerBook :: Stuck At Apple Logo - Won't Boot From Internal HD

Jun 23, 2014

My PowerBook G4 (Ti, 867MHz) just decided it didn't want to boot today... 

The PowerBook has been asleep and not used for a few weeks. I woke it up last week for a few minutes to try and print out a document. It restarted just fine after installing the printer driver. Then it went back asleep until today.

I decided I had better shut it down as it has been sleeping a lot. It's shut down for about 5 minutes when I boot it back up to find it stuck at the Apple logo with the (spinning) spinner. What I tried to do to solve the problem:

1. Booted into Terminal mode (command-s) and typed exit so I could see the boot log. It appears to attempt to boot yet repeatedly prints:

> localhost /System/Library/CoreServices/loginwindow.app/Contents/MacOS/loginwindow[92]: Login Window Application Started -- Threaded auth

> localhost loginwindow[92]: _RegisterApplication(), FAILED TO establish the default connection to the WindowServer, _CGSDefaultConnection() is NULL.

[Code] ....

2. Booted into Terminal again, and mounted the volume. I was able to do ls to list the file contents - so I CAN get to my files. It's not a disk issue. Then I ran fsck -fy. It reported the disk as OK.

3. Rebooted and reset PRAM. No change

4. Reset NVRAM. No change.

5. Popped in the Leopard install disc and restarted. Booted into Leopard disc.

6. Tried to repair permissions from Leopard disc - it just hung and I had to cancel the process.

7. Verified disk from Leopard disc. Reported as OK.

8. Clicked the next button on the install screen. Tried to install. "You don't have enough space"... The skimpy 40GB HD is so packed with stuff that it can't install. And my external HD won't connect to it, it never shows up. Not like I can move off anything anyway as it won't boot... 

I CANNOT format the HD. I have stuff on there I can't lose. Does the Terminal recognize and mount USB devices so I can copy from the Terminal? If not I guess I could delete some apps and Xcode and stuff, maybe the System folder...

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 :: Stuck On Apple Logo After Hard Drive Switch?

Sep 10, 2014

I recently bought a new macbook pro which I had set up and was running just fine. I then switched my hard drive from my old macbook (2006 black) which was running snow leopard. The Macbook pro will not move past the apple logo screen while the macbook starts up and willingly installs snow leopard on the new hard drive. I switched them back hoping that the macbook pro would recognize its old hard drive but no luck. I have a feeling its the old software as i read some where that you should not install older software on your mac than what it came with.

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.

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)

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?

MacBook :: (2008) Won't Boot / Work - Stuck On Gray Apple Logo Screen

Jul 25, 2010

For several weeks, my black MacBook (2008) has been acting odd. Certain applications won't open, and when I attempt to open them, the computer makes a quiet clicking noise, like the drive is failing. Last week, when trying to boot it, the thing just wouldn't. Stuck on the grey Apple logo screen. Assuming a hard drive problem or failure, I ran the tests. I ran Disk Utility from the Snow Leopard install disk, checked & repaired permissions, checked & repaired disk. All okay. I ran the Apple Hardware Test from the install disk that came with the computer, using the test that runs for an hour or so, and all appears to be fine. The computer won't boot into safe mode. I've tried flashing the PRAM. I doubt I could achieve much through target disk mode, as I've already run Disk Utility. What's left to do? Something doesn't add up here.

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)
