    hello Mac Forum! I have a 2009 iMac is x version 10 running on Yosemite ~ ( I have not updated to the latest software because I read it gives you problems in iPhoto and I use my iPhoto a lot.) lately it has been giving me problems such as randomly shutting down. Today I tried turning it on and it starts to boot up but instantly shuts down. I unplugged it for a while and than tried again to no avail. I noticed that the screen seems dim, not its usual brightness. I tried starting the diagnostic but it won't have it. I am worried about my photography files. Any advise on what to do? Thank you!

    My advise would be to bring it in for repairs!

    OK. You had backups? And did you have it replaced with a plain harddisk or with an SSD?
