View Full Version : iMac G4 Won't start Up
Feb 3, 2005, 12:20 AM
Today I restarted my iMac G4 800 MHz... only to have it start back up and stay stuck on the grey screen with the grey apple logo. I let it sit for 30 mins... nothing changed...
How do I fix this? I reciently installed iLife 05 on it.. I think it's running 10.3.5.

My iMac G5 just started that this week! What can I do?

I am running a 1Ghz machine and it did the same thing this week. Started up with the (annoyingly loud) chime, then made a clunk-clunk-clunk sound for a while, then the ? mac thing came on the screen. Tried re-booting several times, same thing, took the cd out, put my tiger cd in, took it out again, re-booted another half dozen times, then it started just like nothing had been wrong at all.
I was planning to open th ebottom panel and see if my extra memory or airport card were loose, but in the end it fixed itself.
