    Hello all,,

    I have a year and a 1/2 old refurbed 27 inch iMac and starting a couple days ago it was taking longer to load programs then usual. Then today I go to my computer and it gets stuck in the white page of death where it is stuck on the white start up screen with the apple logo. After searching, I boot of the instal disk and verify/repair the disk and get the iMac to come back on. I time machine my HD and now when I go from program to program or even website to website it takes incrediblly long to load (2 min on average)

    Any idea what this is and if I can fix it myself or need to get apple involved? I have apple care (just realized I didn't register it though)

    Thanks!!

    Sounds like you have a bad hard drive. Apple will replace that under AppleCare.

    You think I need to take the comp into an apple store or could I send it away?

    GAH, Wish people would stop saying this, It doesn't matter if you have Applecare or not, the hard drives have been RECALLED, they have a replacement program going for iMacs from 2010 to 2011, if they have a 1tb HDD, since he has a 27 inch it should have a 1TB and fits the program, Heres a link OP,
