    Hi,

    Can anyone advise whether the CR2032 battery that is plugged into the Logic Board of an iMac Mid-2007 (2.4GHz Core 2 Duo) is a likely cause for the machine no longer powering up?

    Having confirmed that the power-cable is okay and the fuse hasn't blown at all Apple have advised that the Logic Board (costing $900-$1200 USD approximately) needs replacing.

    Your comments would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Hi,
    Thank you for your reply. Much appreciated.
    I can confirm that I've replaced the CR2032 with a brand-new battery and re-seated the RAM modules, swapped over their slots, tried new RAM as well without avail.

    At a guess my machine is going to have to be shipped to an Apple Authorised Repair Centre. Considering it's been used about 20-times since new. Quite upset that it's died so quickly.

    Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    I would suggest adding a couple hundred dollars more and buying a new machine, not worth reparing for that price in my opinion.
    Do you have your data backed up?
