    Hello! Has anyone ever had a problem where the iMac displays this? I turn the iMac on and this is all I get. Won't boot any further. The iMac is a 20-inch early 2008 model. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!

    2008 model iMacs had a bad habit of failing graphics cards –*I'd say unfortunately your machine is toast. My late 2008 24" has this issue to a lesser extent, it will just randomly lock up and display something like this after working fine for days or weeks.

    Your GPU has failed. You will have to replace it. They run about $120+.
