    I'm getting long start ups and crashes at the least provocation lately, the only diagnostic hint I get is a hardware error code: 4mot/1/40000002:HDD0.:eek:

    Does this mean anything to you?
    Appreciate any clue as to my next move. I've done everything short of reformatting - it won't partition either: "hd drive won't unmount"

    thanks:confused:

    if it is your hdd it is easy to replace yourself [just replaced mine with a 1tb].
    it gives your imac a new lease of life! wish i had done it a lot sooner !

    Thanks guys.
    So it needs open back surgery. . .

    I didn't search very far 'cause more than a few clicks here and there and it freezes up on me.
