    yesterday I bought my new "17 iMac, with 1.5gb and 160 gb hd. It was working very nice until I installed the last version of aMSN (release candidate 1) to try the webcam, and after a few unsuccesful tries, when I was to close the webcam window, a message popped up asking me to restart the computer. After I did, I sent the report to mac, and after browsing in the forums I saw some similar cases where you suggest using Disk Utility.

    Well, I hit Disk Utility and this came up:

    Anyone can help me here?? Thanks a lot

    BTW, the computer runs smoothly, It starts up very quick and runs programs fast.

    I would startup you computer with your restore disc and run Disc Utility from that disc. You can repair your startup disc if you boot from the restore disc.

    It worked, thanks man. :D

    I ran another disk utility and it seems to be working nice (green letters).

    I also ran a hardware test and says there are no hardware problems. What could have caused it?

    Thanks again!
