    HI all

    Hoping someone can help - my imac (approx 15-18 months old , intel) won't start.

    Last night on shutting down DPP (canon Digital image software) was hanging and system asked me if I wanted to force quit it...sadly I had switched off my bluetooth mouse and , as usually once mouse turned off switching it back on it never re connects - why did I buy the bletooth mouse and keyboard ?, so I could not confirm yes force quit - is there no way of selecting with keyboard like there is in windows ?

    So I switched off at power switch. Tried to re switch on - grey screen came up, apple logo, the little timer circle but after a while timer circle stopped and nothing further happened.

    have tried several more times and now don't even get timer.

    Can anyone please help :-(

    thanks very much

    didn't work last night :(

    tried tab, tried right arrow, tried up and down arrow (after all Mac like to be different and obtuse)

    None of above worked :(
