    Hey,

    I have a 20" iMac AL that starts up, and all this white text on a black background appear. It DOES start up ok, just showing this text instead of the usual start up. I did some research and it looks like Verbose Startup. I can't get it to start up the other way. How do you do that? Thanks

    Try to zap the P RAM:

    Hold down P + R + Command +Option and turn it on, it will reboot. Let go of the keys after you hear the second chime.

    Thanks! That worked. I was trying Command-S for single user mode and that was not working. Thanks:cool::cool::cool:
